In May 1990, ASICS, an acronym based on the Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which means "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." opened the Research Institute of Sports Science in Kobe. Studying and analyzing the movements of the human body and testing a large variety of materials are the main activities of the institute. The facility’s one goal is to enable professional and recreational athletes all over the world to perform better, to reach a higher level and to enjoy themselves. At Good Sports, you’ll find the ultimate in ASICS apparel and ASICS Gel footwear, including the latest generation of ASCIS Gel Nimbus and Gel-Kayano running shoes.
