ASICS AND LEROY BURRELL DASH AHEAD OF THE PACK WITH NEW SPIKE SHOE
 FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- World-class track & field athlete and Santa Monica Track Club member, Leroy Burrell, will debut ASICS latest technical spike shoe in Barcelona. Known as one of the fastest 100-meter sprinters in the world, Burrell is endorsed by ASICS Corporation Japan (ACJ), parent company of ASICS TIGER Corporation, located in Fountain Valley.
 Developed exclusively for Burrell at ACJ's Research Institute of Sports Science in Kobe, Japan, this performance-oriented competition shoe is patterned with three spikes in the upper toe area. The shoe is designed to more quickly catch the track surface increasing friction. To aid the runner during the crucial take-off position, the forward portion of the sole plate is roughened with small triangular protuberances which are smaller than the traditional spikes. The dual toe-tip protuberances are designed in a "V" shape to assist the efficiency of the runner's leg thrust.
 This unique shoe will be worn exclusively by Burrell in competition during the 1992 Summer Olympic Games.
 ASICS TIGER Corporation, with more than 40 years of sporting goods manufacturing experience, offers a full line of athletic shoes, sports apparel, accessories and sunglasses. ASICS shoe line includes high-quality, technologically advanced footwear for running, cross training, racing, basketball, wrestling, volleyball, gymnastics, baseball/softball, walking and youth.
