The SKYCOURT™ NEW STRONG™ sneaker borrows design influence from our indoor court offerings from the 80s and 90s. This version draws inspiration from springtime motifs—the season to begin in Japan. This colorway symbolizes the refreshing hues of Japan’s skies, mountains, and rivers that are dressed in harukasumi(spring mist). Enlisting the upper aesthetic from the GEL-ALTITUDE™ volleyball shoe from 1990, the sneaker is also complemented with retro ASICS Stripes for a nostalgic nod that reference our past. Featuring an updated midsole design that incorporates the same cupsole tooling as our JAPAN S™ sneaker, this silhouette has been reimagined with a minimalist aesthetic that speaks to our brand’s heritage with a timeless design.
