ASICS recently reported growth in the first quarter of 2019 within ASICS North America (ANA), which includes the United States, Canada and Mexico.  This growth was driven by strong sales of performance running and tennis footwear, along with product launches within the performance running and Sports Style categories.

ASICS saw an increase in sales of Legend products, especially the latest model in the GT-2000 series, along with successful product launches, including the Metaride and Gel-DS Trainer 24 models.

ASICS says it continues to see growth across key retail channels, citing 3.3 percent growth year-over-year.  This increase is attributed to successful product launches during the quarter, which drove consumers to our retail partners and into ASICS stores.
