The Connection with Japanese Tea Ceremony

ASICS draws deep parallels with the Japanese tea ceremony, known as chanoyu, sado, or ocha, signifying the Way of the Tea. This collection mimics the art of making and drinking tea, which stands for mindfulness, well-being, and harmony.

With matcha at its heart, the tea ceremony, aims to foster a bond between the host and guest and cultivate inner peace. Once a practice exclusive to Zen monks and noble warlords, it has become a significant cultural activity, combining respect, silence, and symbolic purification. Just as one may spend years perfecting the tea ceremony, the development of these ASICS sneakers has demanded rigorous attention to detail and commitment to excellence.
