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 modified cupsole, this shoe is offers comfortable underfoot cushioning. Mimicking the aesthetic of a heritage basketball sneaker, this style is also paired with nostalgic branding, like the ASICS Stripes on the quarter-panels and “ASICS” lettering at the heel. The JAPAN S™ shoe’s vintage basketball aesthetic is also paired with iconic court-specific details that are inspired by footwear worn by basketball players in the 1980s.
Based on the original 1981 model
