The Japanese company ASICS, one of the world leaders in the production of sportswear and shoes,
opened a new office in Moscow (Olimpiysky Prospekt, 14), which is associated with a significant increase in investment in the Russian representative office and a qualitative renewal of his team. The new spacious premises housed the ASICS office and showroom. The company's subsidiary was registered in Russia in 2008, worked with small volumes of products, and now ASICS head office makes a strategic bet on the Russian market and plans to double investment in marketing and developing the brand presence in partner stores in the next three years. In addition, ASICS branded stores will appear in Russia in the coming 3-4 years.
The company also introduced the new autumn-winter collection 2017 / 18, reflecting the design decisions and technologies of the brand. At the presentation of the collection, representatives of the company’s management told the guests about the innovative developments, ideas and plans of ASICS in Russia and the world.
Particular emphasis was placed on a series of FlyteFoam Fast sneakers unique in that it is suitable for a wide variety of types of pronation and running styles. FlyteFoam is the result of nearly three years of work on more than 300 prototypes tested at the ASICS Sports Research Institute. The foam from which the sole of the shoe is made, with built-in reinforced fibers that provide maximum cushioning when running on asphalt, is 55% lighter than the industry-standard foam. The midsole in the new running shoe series is the lightest of all ASICS models.
Another new product from ASICS - RoadHawk FF running shoes - the best price-quality ratio, perfect for jogging and for everyday life. The quick-drying Ortholite insole provides superior cushioning. A unique combination of technical developments, stylish design is ideal for any look, while ensuring constant comfort.
