The is no such thing as the Ariss Running Shoes. They are a fictitious brand created by the shoe designer, Wade Motawi for his book, How Shoes are Made: A behind the scenes look at a real shoe factory. The brand is used to take the reader through the design and manufacturing process of a running shoe.
ARISS does stand for an amateur satellite service, the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station. This is a project carried out by astronauts and cosmonauts on the International Space Station who also happen to have an amateur radio license.
