The JAPAN S shoes originally made their debut in 1981 and are now available in the kids' JAPAN S GS model. This reworked iteration is formed with a low-top silhouette that's complete with a court-inspired toebox and throwback colorways. Updated with a lightweight design that features a modified cupsole, this shoe is enhanced with premium comfort and long-lasting cushioning. Mimicking the aesthetic of a retro basketball sneaker, this heritage kids 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 GS kid's shoe with its vintage basketball aesthetic is complemented with court-specific details that are inspired by footwear worn on the hardwood by basketball players in the 80s.
