Gel Never Fails,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Women's GEL-Contend Running Shoe (Apparel)
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!
