Comments about ASICS Boys' GEL-Contend 2 Running Shoes:

Asics for sure provides the best support for my son's feet for all activities! He's happy and comfortable in them all day at school, in PE class and all afternoon until it's time to shower.

                    As usual, this brand holds up to its name.
                    Fits good, last longer than most more expensive sneakers and looks great.
                    The sneaker was for my son and i wear the sane type myself.
                    Sure to last the whole school year.

                                      Love the shoe! Very supportive for someone with a medium arch. Really makes a difference when I run. Great support, and flexibility of motion.
