Thank you for your feedback.
Think of how happy I was to learn that these shoes work for every day use, and at work to help my hips and back!
There is no leg fatigue at the end of my shift because they have very good arch support.
This is my 3rd pair of these shoes now, and for a basic running shoe they can't be beat.

Product Description

Electric colors and reflective details make this low-mileage ASICS running shoe safely stand out.

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.

    I work in a doctors office and walk all day long. I needed a pair of shoes that will not be hard on my back and my legs. These shoes have fullfilled my needs. I really like them. The colors are just as you see them in the picture. The cost is very reasonable. I highly recommend these shoes.

    I wear a size 8 Medium and these shoes are true to their size. The toe space is perfect and it seems that my toes are quite comfortable in the shoes. I purchased these shoes for their arch support. I am very satisfied

    These shoes feel somewhat large, but otherwise they are fine. I have worn Asics running shoes for years and have always worn a size 9-1/2. This is the first time I have worn the Contend 2 running shoe. With my normal socks these feel a bit large, so I will get a much thicker sock to wear with these. I like the way they look and I especially like the cushioning in the heel area.

    I am a beginner runner & I don't unfortunately have 150 dollars to spend on new running shoes right now so I got these.
    They fit me perfectly. I have an extremely high foot arch as well as a somewhat narrow foot. I was extremely happy to look inside of these shoes and see that they have support for high arches. Very comfy and look exactly as pictured!
    Before I got these I was running in my walmart shoes which was causing me HORRIBLE shin splints.(to be expected with 10 dollar shoes LOL)
    I got these and was able to run longer, faster and surprisingly I did not get shin splints this time - HOWEVER I did get knee pain which I haven't gotten before - so I kinda substituted one problem for another but I could have just over worked myself - Ill have to run in them again to make sure! But overall - a great comfy shoe that I will be using untill I can get those 150 dollar running shoes! :)

    Daughter, age 14, is wearing these for track practice and distance events. She's very pleased with them. Size was accurate with her shoe purchase experiences.
