The Asics Curreo embodies the silhouette of the signature X-Caliber running shoe. The experience of the users is prioritized upon designing these shoes because its low-cut profile allows more movement on the ankles and the slightly elevated heel provides extra cushioning for comfort.

The mesh and synthetic lining provide a snug fit to the feet while the traditional lace-up closure permits the wearers the leisure to adjust the tightness of the shoe. The Curreo is offered in men's sizes ranging from 5-14 UK.

Retro is definitely not a passing trend with the Asics Curreo. Inspired by an 80's running sneaker, these sneakers remind people of the brand's running heritage. Although looking like made for the tracks, the Curreo belongs more in the streets. Its sleek and versatile design can take its user on different occasions- whether it is to a concert, to work, or wherever the road leads. Pairing these with pants, shorts, and everything in between is feasible with the Asics Curreo.

Much like the name of the brand that found its name from a Latin phrase, Curreo is translated from the same language, meaning "to run." Despite made for casual purposes, these sneakers boast of track materials like the mesh and synthetic upper which keeps the shoe breathable, strong, and extremely lightweight. The sole equally delivers boasting stability, support, and comfort that can last all day.

Initially starting as the Onitsuka Tiger, founded by Kihachiro Onitsuka in 1949, the company formed with the intent to uplift the post-war depression suffered by Japan. The company produced sneakers of varying sports activities used by 50s, 60s, and 70s athletes worldwide.  In 1977, Onitsuka Tiger teamed with GTO, a sportswear manufacturer, and Jelenk, a knitwear company, and formed the ASICS Corporation.

ASICS is derived from the acronym of the Latin phrase "anima sana in corpore sano" which is translated to "a healthy mind in a healthy body." This philosophy is aligned with Onitsuka's, that sports and fitness plays a crucial role for a sound mind and body. This principle has been the foundation of every Asics sneaker that has ever been created.

One of the more current designs of Asics is the Curreo, inspired by an 80s running shoe, X-Caliber. Even though it takes cues from a sports-targeted sneaker, it carries the performance of what it should be on the streets.

  • The Asics Curreo has a padded tongue and collar for additional comfort.
  • It sports the trademark symbol on the side and Asics text on the tongue.
