Back in the day (late 70s), Phil Knight was sued by the founder of Asics for basically stealing his designs AND NAMES for a few early Nike models. Knight came out of U of O in Eugene and Asics was also a running shoe company. From what I've heard, Knight lost the suit... So in other words, the heritage of Nike tennis shoes is tied to Asics anyway...
