OK Basketball Shoe

OK Basketball Shoe

The OK Basketball Shoe was the start of it all for the brand as the very first ASICS product. At this time basketball shoes were difficult to make, but that did not deter Onitsuka - instead, it inspired him. He gave early prototypes to basketball leagues in Kobe for wear testing. It was refined and released to the public in the spring of 1950.
