While ASICS is predominantly known for its progressions in running footwear, the sportswear brand also flirted with the hardwood for a brief period in the early ’90s. Legendary Pistons guard Isiah Thomas was chosen as the spokesperson for ASICS Basketball, who accordingly chose the Gel Spotlyte as his silhouette of choice.

Look for this high-rising release at retailers like KITH now.
