Asics’ children’s performance footwear received the Seal of Acceptance distinction by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA).
The distinction signifies shoes to have been found to be beneficial to foot health. The APMA evaluation process involves analyzing the function, flexibility, quality of materials and the workmanship of shoes.
All 19 models of Asics children’s shoes, which spans sizes for toddler, pre-school and grade school children, were approved in the testing. Starting in July, all Asics’ kids’ shoes will have the APMA Seal of Acceptance on the box as an indicator to parents that they are making a sound and healthy purchase for their children.
“Behind every pair of Asics shoes is an immense amount of science and research and our children’s footwear is no exception. Receiving the Seal of Acceptance distinction from the American Podiatric Medical Association is a testament to the hard work and continuous improvement that goes into making every pair of Asics shoes,” said Asics President and CEO Kevin Wulff.
Moving forward, the brand said it will work with APMA to support foot health through continuous improvement and introducing innovative products to the market. APMA is committed to foot health. Its recent “First Steps: Keeping Kids’ Feet Healthy and Happy” campaign has given parents a resource for all they need to know about their children’s foot health.
