Get Your Workout Gear at ASICS Sample Sale.

UPDATE: 9/3 Further reductions on apparel and footwear (extra 25% off).  9/5 Final reductions taken.

Last evening I had a chance to preview the upcoming ASICS sample sale. Set to officially open this morning at 9 am, the sale features footwear, accessories, menswear and womenswear from the innovative athletics brand. Originally founded in Japan and introduced to U.S. in 1977, ASICS aims to promote a happy and healthy lifestyle through total health and fitness. 

Advertised discounts promised saving of up to 80% off retail although I found majority of the stock priced in the 60% – 70% off range. Still, prices were very cheap with all apparel priced at $34.99 and under and footwear topped out at $59.99. It’s worth noting that there were no fitting rooms or mirrors available so keep that as a consideration.

Women’s apparel was situated in the middle of the room and took up roughly half the venue space. Upon entry you are immediately greeted with racks of tech tees for $16.99 and long sleeve tops for $24.99. Available in multitude of colors and sizes from XS-XL. Basics tees were a little further back and priced at just $9.99.

Short sleeve tech tees $16.99
Tank tops $12.99
Women’s tops
Tees $9.99
Sleeveless top $12.99 (originally $45)
Tennis dress $19.99 (originally $60)

Along the right side, near the registers I found bins filled with socks $4.99, backpacks $24.99, various accessories such as calf sleeves $4.99 and shoe wallets $5.59. There were also boxed compression tops and tights for $24.99. The latter retail for $100 and were one of the more discounted items. Sizing was a bit iffy with mostly XS and a few S/P. I did not see any M or L in that particular style of tights. But no worries as there were plenty of other pants on the racks. From running capris to training pants to lots and lots of shorts. Swimwear was also available for $16.99 for tops and bottoms. I particularly liked these reversible bra tops in the photo below.

Accessories such as socks, hats, etc.
Backpacks $24.99

Shoe wallets? (they have a little clip on the back) Theres always something new to discover 😉

All footwear was located in the back, with ladies’ sizes ranging from 5 to 13. Larger sizes (8+) offered the most variety and stock. I saw lots of running and training shoes in a wide range of colors. Each shoe was marked with either a green or blue plastic tie to denote the price. $49.99 for green and $59.99 for blue (technically they used purple as well as blue ties but they’re both priced the same). 

Ladies’ footwear $49.99 – $59.99 
Lots of running and training styles
Notice the green and blue/purple plastic ties
Menswear was located on the lefthand side of the venue. There were lots of t-shirts, shorts, hoodies, and jackets. Sneakers were all the way in the back and also priced at $49.99 for green tags and $59.99 for blue.

T-shirts $9.99

BOTTOM LINE: The sale offers a great selection of athletic workout gear at very reasonable prices for both men and women. If your gym clothes could use an upgrade definitely try to drop by. There will likely be further markdowns as the sale runs through Sunday. Just keep in mind that certain styles and sizes may sell out well before that time.
