Asics Spring 2010 Footwear Updates – Back to the Future

September 17th, 2009

In the ’70′s when Asics was Tiger, the brand had a solid training shoe following, but runners flocked to the brand for their performance models.  The Ohbori and Jayhawk flats, the Spartan B spike were on the feet of the best runners from that era.  I remember distinctly photos of Alberto Salazar running for the mighty Ducks of Oregon wearing black dress socks and Tiger B’s. Rogers and Shorter won in Tigers and who could forget Allison Roe winning Boston and NYC in ’81 and setting the marathon world best in Tigers?
