        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.

                      I bought these as a gift for my dad - he would always wear another brand but we convinced him to try Asics last year. He's definitely been converted. The sneakers are very light weight and comfortable. Run very true to size. They were shipped very quickly, and he is breaking them in as we speak.
