When we talk about sports good brands the ones that first come into our minds are the usual big name international brands like Nike, Adidas, Puma, Reebok, Converse and more!

However what we don’t realise is that there are several Asian-based sports brands that are quite well received out of their homeland due to their quality which is said to be on par with the big brand names.

Here are some Asian-based sports brands that are doing quite well which you might have probably heard of:-

AL (aL-IkhsaN)

BA07016178 BVer1 horz

Surely many Malaysian have heard of the leading sports chain in Malaysia, aL-IkhsaN which retails sporting goods from various global brands. However, not many know that aL-IkhsaN also has its very own sports brand called AL which carries a line of football jerseys, backpacks, slippers and t-shirts.

This brand is actually from Thailand. Warrix gained recognition at the end of last year when it sponsored three football teams in the Malaysian League; Kedah FA, ATM FA and Kuala Lumpur FA.


Laos Home AFF2012

Another brand from Thailand which was first introduced in 1952. Previously the brand was only well-received among fans of sepak takraw, but after the brand began to sponsor the Thailand football teams in many countries, it has become rather well-known among many sports appreciators.

Originating from the Land of the Rising Sun, this brand is not only popular in Asia but also throughout the world. Mizuno which was first introduced in 1906, has expanded and diversified its brand to many sporting products including football, basketball, golf, boxing and others. The brand is apparently able to compete with other major sports brands such as Nike, Puma and Adidas, that’s how big it actually is.

Also from Japan, Asics is well known among runners and also sneaker enthusiasts. But the main reason why the brand is famous all over the world is because of its Onitsuka Tiger line by Asics, which is a craze among many teenagers in Asia and Europe.
