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

My son received this product as a birthday gift six months ago. He wears them every day to school. the black rubber on the bottoms of the soles have started to rip off. Asics are warranteed for 2 years. These shoes broke down in less that 6 months. I will be returning them.

              Great workout and running shoe for the price. Overall quality is very satisfactory and Asics really knows how to design running shoes. I received a good running shoe at a great sale price that fits my need and purpose. You can always count on Asics to deliver the goods. Thanks Sports Authority for distributing this product.

              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.

              My husband wears these shoes to work and is on his feet a lot which is why he wears them out fast. These shoes have really worked well for him.

                  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.
