The KO100 collection is inspired by the sunflower and the ASICS Sound Mind, Sound Body and I Move Me philosophies of always looking on the bright side of life, and rising tall through movement. ASICS founder Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka recognised the power of movement to energize a nation and used “Sound Body, Sound Mind” as a foundation and call to action for the individual to move for the collective betterment of society.
The Limited Edition KO100 Series celebrates the enduring vision of Mr. Onitsuka to create joy and progress through movement. A philosophy that is just as relevant today as when he launched the brand more than 60 years ago.
Go back in time to the jogging boom of the 1970s every time you step into a pair of TIGER CORSAIR unisex lifestyle sneakers. They are a proud re-invention of the original 1970s' Onitsuka Tiger jogging shoes, and feature a vast array of modern-day footwear design and functionality elements, including a thicker heel for greater shock absorption, a flexible EVA midsole for a lightweight feel, a solid rubber outsole for enhanced durability, and plenty of plush cushioning for unbeatable comfort. The end result? A lifestyle trainer with the perfect mix of fashion-forward flair and fabulous features.
