CHILDREN ARE LIKE SUNFLOWERS…
SPORT IS THE WATER THAT GIVES THEM LIFE.
THE SUN, A FUTURE SHINING BRIGHT.
In honor of the founder Kihachiro Onitsuka's 100th birthday his vision of inspiring future generations and bringing harmony to mind and body is combined under the influence of one of his greatest inspirations: the sunflower. The limited-edition KO100™ Series consists of the Onitsuka Tiger Corsair, Asics Tiger Gel-Mai & Asics Gel-Quantum 360 and are all released today. Just as the sunflower always faces towards the sun, Mr. Onitsuka helped people face their bright futures.
Kihachiro Onitsuka inspired future generations through movement. Asics will continue this legacy by donating a portion of KO100 sales to Right To Play – an organization that uses sport and exercise to improve the lives of underprivileged children around the world. $10 from every KO100 shoe or clothing purchase will go towards sponsoring one child in Lebanon to play sports for 10 weeks.
