Product Description

In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co. Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.

The ASICS GEL-ContendTM low-profile athletic shoe delivers everyday comfort n a lightweight package intended for the entry level runner. This pre-laced women's athletic shoe sports a minimalist-inspired synthetic leather and open mesh upper with reflective detailing and a removable insole. For stability and comfort, the upper is stitched around the EVA board and directly attached to the midsole. The ASICS GEL-ContendTM performance shoe boasts rearfoot GEL cushioning for lasting underfoot support.

Very comfortable running shoe, great looking too.
Ellen M. Lee
I would recommend them to other runners who are over pronators who need arch support.

She wears a size 8 and they fit perfect, no issues at all.

This is good shoe but the price was what really reeled me in! We are going to Disney World in 2 weeks and I need a new pair of athletic shoes for the massive amounts of walking ahead. I LOVE ASICS but my preferred shoes are in the pricey range for my budget. I have high-arches and degenerative disc disease as well as some nerve damage in my hip/leg. I had to go up a size in shoes due to frequent swelling of my right foot. These fit perfectly! Lightweight, too!!

I have never heard of the ASICS brand until my son bought a pair at a high end running shoe store. I decided to buy these shoes because my tennis shoes are over 3 years old and in need of replacement. The ASICS are just what I need. The support is in the right place and they feel great on. I love the electric purple color and the price. I am going to use them for walking and exercising. I don't run and don't know enought abou running shoes, bu I recommend these to anyone in need of a good pair of walking shoes.

The shoes are the right size, but the arch support is in the wrong place. It is so strange. I have worn many pairs of Asics, and I have never had this issue.

Arrived on time, fit perfectly, light weight and just what I wanted. I really like the Asics Gel collection, the purple is a nice touch.

These are my 4th pair of Asics and I use them primarily for walking. The fit is good, I have a high arch so I do insert a Dr. Scholls athletic form and this shoe has enough room for that. I typically wear 71/2 to 8 in women's dress or sandals and I always order an 8 in the running shoe to avoid jamming your toes. Also for anyone that has a narrow heal this is a great shoe that wont slip! Oh by the way they also wash well. Normal cycle air dry pull out sole liners to dry and they are brand new!!! :-)

Color Name: Electric Purple/Lightning/Capri BlueSize Name: 8 B(M) US Verified Purchase
I haven't been able to truly work out due to prior military injuries. I was wearing a ankle boot for a year. When I went to military training, gel gym shoes were the only option to wear. Gel definitely is the best kind of support that is out there for me. I tired several different running, walking gym shoes and they just didn't support me as much. The gel gym shoes feel like a perfect fit. The shape of the shoe is in line with the shape of my foot. I have narrow feet, lost my arches in both feet, torn left ankle ligament, tore right foot ligament, stress fractures in both legs... (due to military training), dancers' feet (danced for only ten years)...so my feet and legs have been through some things. The doctor said I was now able to start working out, but to take it slowly for a month or so. I just did a two mile walk since two years and never felt better!
