With an upper similar to the armour used by Samurais, it protects while allowing for full freedom of movement. With the shape of the heel inspired by the katana, the Samurai’s sword, Gel-kinsei makes its return in the original black and white version, renewing its promise to be the ever-faithful companion to long-distance runners.

Bold and comfortable, Gel-kinsei renews the values of the brand founded by Kihachiro Onitsuka and embodied by Asics, an acronym for the Latin expression “Anima Sana In Corpore Sano” [You should pray for a healthy mind in a healthy body].
