Editor’s Notes: ASICS unveils its exclusive “Welcome to the Dojo” pack, a limited edition footwear and apparel range that pays homage to the brand’s Japanese heritage.
The story behind the inspiration for the pack is one rooted in deep Japanese tradition—the dojo is a space that’s traditionally used for training in martial arts. Over time the dojo became a space for students to immerse themselves in education and meditation, and the concept for the pack is meant to inspire the next set of builders and creators to find their own path, like UpscaleHype co-founder Allen Onyia.
