    I have tried many different running shoes since I am on Cross Country, and these are by far the best! I have also done two marathons, and these keep my feet cushioned better than any other shoe, and it doesn't hurt to run on the cement as much. They are very sturdy and lasted me MANY miles. Totally going to buy these again! (:

    I am a runner that likes the extra cushion when running. Although it provides stability, the sole does not have nearly enough cushion for running on the sidewalk or any other kind of pavement. The type of shoe is great for running errands, going for a walk, or getting on the elliptical, but I would not recommend them for high impact cardio.

        I think these sneakers are so comfortable. I bought them in a wide width (which is not so easy to find) They look and feel great AND they weren't expensive at all. I joined the gym, got the sneakers, and found a great top to match my sneakers. I may be new to the gym, but you'd never know it by looking at my outfit......LOL.

            Very disappointed!!!

            Verified Buyer

            Comments about ASICS Women's GEL-Contend Running Shoes:

            I was extremely disappointed with this purchase because I ordered the sneakers in a size 8. When the shoes arrived I saw that they sent me one shoe in a size 8 and the other shoe in a size 8 1/2. When I contacted them they told me that my size was out of stock therefore I needed to ship back the shoes and when they received them they would credit back the money. They didn't even ask me if there were any other shoes I may be interested in so that they could send me other ones. Also, if you buy online you can't go make an exchange at the store. Only good thing was that I got my money back. Next time I'll go shop somewhere else.

                MY GO TO SHOES. I use these shoes everyday. I workout in the morning for about 3hrs (running and strength training, hiking, biking etc.) and head to work in them. They are super comfortable! My 1st pair were given to me as gift and now i continue to buy them. I highly recommend them. The price is what makes it even better. AFFORDABLE. I love that they mold and are flexible to the way you move your feet. And the cushion is comfortable and durable.

                After they sent the wrong color, I contacted customer service. They were going to send out a return shipping label, so that I wouldn't have to pay for it. Well, over a month later, they are still sitting in my living room, in a box. Had to go buy a different pair at a different store so that I could go walking. Contacted customer service 3 times. I would like my money back and get this box out of my living room!

                With Osteoarthritis, my doctor recommended a show specialist for shoes that best support my knees and heels. The foot specialist recommended ASICS over 8 years ago. I have tried other shows, but ASICS is the perfect fit, and provides the needed support (arch, knees, heels) for me.

                Comments about ASICS Women's GEL-Contend Running Shoes:

                My old ASICS (probably three years of hard use) were not very supportive - I'd forgotten how it felt to have my feet held well by a shoe! These are quite comfortable, though I need to buy an arch support insert (this is true of most shoes I buy and is not particular to this shoe). I'm not a great athlete, but I wear my shoes as everyday shoes and these are perfect for that.
