The JAPAN S shoes are based on one of our throwback offerings from 1981. This reworked iteration is formed with a low-top silhouette that's complete with a court-inspired toe box and throwback colorways. Updated with a lightweight design that features a modified cupsole, this shoe is complemented with premium comfort and improved cushioning. Mimicking the aesthetic of a retro basketball sneaker, this heritage style is also paired with nostalgic ASICS branding, like the tiger stripes on the quarter-panels and "ASICS" lettering at the heel. The JAPAN S shoe's vintage basketball aesthetic is paired with iconic court-specific details that are inspired by footwear worn on the hardwood by basketball players in the 80s.
Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The JAPAN S is made for Neutral.
Normal size arches
There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
How your foot contacts the ground
The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.

Gorgeous sneakersThese are just the right sneakers for fashion wear! They look awesome. Love them!!! Keep buying other ASICS sneakers for running! For me, they are too stiff to run in.
