Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Contend 2 Running Shoes:

I use these shoes for running and when I go to the gym. I am female size 9.5 and the 8 men's fit perfectly. I couldn't find a color I liked in women's of similar price. I did not have to break in at all. They seem to be entry level and I don't expect them to last long but they are fine for now. I get ASICS for their arch support.

      Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Contend 2 Running Shoes:

      Run every day, 2 miles, path/road. Been doing for over 30 years. I've never had the inside heal of a running shoe wear out like this shoe, in only 1 month. I even taped up to try and get a few more months, but gave up. My skin keeps breaking. I have always bought NIKE, tried some Reebok, but this was my first ASICS. Never again.

          Less cushion than I'd hoped

            Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Contend 2 Running Shoes:

            I've only had these for a week, so have been out running with them just three times. So far, there has been less cushion that I would like, and less than I've had in other Asics shoes. I've been unusually sore after my usual 4-mile run. I have some Dr. Scholl inserts that I can use as a supplement if the problem persists.
