        Light shoe to run in. Not for someone who need arch support. Run 5 miles every other day, shoes r good if you have good feet already. Wears out on heals quickly.

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

          I have been buying Asics Gels for about three years. The first two pairs lasted a year each in normal everyday casual activities. life happens and now i have an AFO brace on one ankle/foot, still buying same shoe but larger size to fit AFO in. Shoes last about five months now, AFO is tough on the one shoe. These are good shoes, it is not the shoes fault the AFO wears the side out.

              I got 2 pairs of these for my 10 yr old grandson due to him having a very painful heel wart that they have been trying to freeze out; as yet unsuccessfully. His regular sport shoes caused him to feel pain in each step; the GEL heel has helped him be more comfortable while his foot heels. I got two pairs so he could alternate pairs. He likes them and they look nice too.
