ASICS is an acronym for Anima Sana In Corpore Sano... as it's an acronym rather than a word as such the pronunciation could be debatable...  but I'd say A-sics unless you're a yank...

Can I make a confession?

When I got back into running, about 5 years ago, I thought they were called..

...Dasics!

That logo for the A confussed me because it looks like a D

I never asked for them by that name though

Nike - only the yanks call then Ny-kee.

Imagine the sentence 

I ly-kee to wear my ny-kee whether I hy-kee or by-kee to see My-kee to fish for py-kee

Well I am never going to open my mouth and ask again.  I think I will just point or order off the internet where no one laughs if you get it wrong

And it's scon. Not scone.

Are those cushioning or support scons?

Ny-kee. She's a Greek goddess.

Languages are odd, especially English.

Patio and ratio could also be paysheeo and rattyo

Re Saucony:  If you say sock-a-knee rather than saw-con-y, it is a very American way of pronouncing the 'au' vowel sound which would not sound natural in English.  eg like the difference between 'all', 'call' or 'fall' in American and English. The staff in an English shop would still stare at you!

I don't know how this thread got resurrected but I've been pronouncing Saucony wrong in my head.

This quoted post was quite interesting though... because I used to read this brand name as Oasics  - pronouncing it O-ay-sics.
