              I love these shoes! They are my go to walk/run/cross training shoe. Comfortable, easy to keep clean and sturdy enough to handle my workout regimen. Will never go back to other brands!

                    Great shoe performance, not heavy, great fit. I would recommend to everyone. At first I bought a pair of asics that were $20 more but ended up returning because they were to heavy.

                                    Comments about Asics Women's GEL-Contend 2 Running Shoes:

                                    A year or so ago I could do three back-to-back classes at the gym, swim 6 laps, enjoy the spa most days of the week. (I'm working my way back.) I initially tried on a ridiculous number of sneakers. Most rubbed my ankles, some couldn't seem to hold my foot in place. Most gave too little toe room. Asics training sneakers do need to be replaced when you start to see your foot is no longer being held firmly in place, but I could give them three months or more of near abuse. Cost is low, so replacing them is not a problem. There seems to be a very large variety of running sneakers and maybe one training sneaker. Not many people cross-training these days? My gym usually has a body works class, a cardio class and a yoga or pilates...dance classes too...but I think of them as dessert...fun, but I can't seem to feel the workout.
