The JAPAN L™ shoes are based on one of our throwback offerings from 1981. This reworked iteration is formed with a mid-top silhouette that’s complete with a court-inspired toe box and throwback colorways.
Updated with a lightweight design that features a modified cupsole, this shoe is enhanced with excellent comfort and long-lasting cushioning. Mimicking the aesthetic of a retro basketball sneaker, this heritage style is also paired with nostalgic ASICS branding, like the tiger stripes on the quarter-panels and ASICS lettering at the heel.
The JAPAN L™ shoe’s vintage basketball aesthetic is complemented with iconic court-specific details that are inspired by footwear worn on the hardwood by basketball players in the 80s.
