The JAPAN S™ shoes originally made their debut in 1981 and are now available in the kids' JAPAN S™ GS model.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 toe box 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 branding, like the ASICS 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.
Designed For Neutral
Foot Type - Normal size arches
Push Off - There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
Considered Injuries - Less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
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.
