In 1949, Kihachiro Onitsuka created the Japanese sportswear company Onitsuka Tiger. Some of the best-known athletes in the world wore the company’s athletic shoes when it first started out, notably Abebe Bikila, who won the Olympic Marathon twice—once while wearing Onitsuka Tiger shoes in 1960 and again in 1964. Although Onitsuka Tiger and two other Japanese businesses joined to establish ASICS in 1977, the Onitsuka Tiger brand was kept on as a lifestyle brand.
