Like any successful brand with a global reach, the national origins of Asics are essentially, background information. Performance is always first and foremost on the minds of Asics, and the athletes wearing their shoes, but there’s no denying that the brand’s Japanese roots are an integral part of the Asics story.

Asics have partnered with Amsterdam’s Patta to create a shoe that celebrates one of the most popular and recognizable elements of modern Japanese culture, anime and manga. The classic running silhouette features vivid colors inspired by the bold visual style of Japanese animation, while the nubuck, suede, and perforated leather construction is the kind of design that makes old performance runners timeless fashion pieces.
