This all new version of the popular GEL-Contend™ is designed to provide ASICS’ hallmark performance through exceptional cushioning and great fit, ideal for entry-level or low mileage runners.
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 used these shoes during my run the past two days and I'm still super impressed with these shoes. I ran around 5 miles both days and these shoes (while cheap} did not disappoint. I'm an avid runner and have MANY pairs of running shoes some very expensive some like these not so much. That goes to show that a good pair of kicks don't have to break the bank to get the job done.
My History: I have suffered from plantar fasciitis, some over-pronation, and a bit of osteoarthritis in one knee so my physical therapist recommended the ASICS Women's GEL-Kayano’s to me several years ago. Ever since that time, I have been purchasing a new pair when needed and they have never let me down. Even though the design changes a bit each year, the support is there and they are always my go-to for new running shoes, no matter the price.
While buying my new Kayano running shoes this past Prime Day, I came across the ASICS Women's GEL-Contend 3 Running Shoe and decided to give them a try for a few reasons; the sale price, the positive reviews, and the fact that they are also Asics running shoes. I thought could they really be that different?
Both pairs of running shoes arrived and I was pleased, as always, with my ASICS Women's GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoes. They provided excellent arch support, a cushiony footbed, mesh overlays, and everything else I need to keep comfortable and on-the-go.
The ASICS Women's GEL-Contend 3 Running Shoes are initially comfortable but that’s where it ended for me. I can see why they are significantly less expensive than the Kayano shoes. They simply do not have the arch support and cushioning that the Kayano’s offer. They also do not help with my over-pronation.
I am going to keep the GEL-Contend shoes but only because I can place my orthotics in them and still use the shoes to run errands and around the house. Otherwise, I would have returned them because while stylish, I don’t care how cute my feet look if they hurt.
The Takeaway: I will stick with my expensive ASICS Women's GEL-Kayano 22 running shoes because I know exactly what I am buying year after year and they have never let me down.
I like Asics anyways but I love these shoes! I've walked and ran in them so far with no issues. I wore them around my house to "break in" for a few hours and didn't really need to.
They are super supportive and the "roll through" is wonderful when walking or running. Feels like a springboard that bounces and cushions my feet with whatever move I make. Oh--and love the bright colors (Navy/hot pink/mint). Great purchase, and came earlier than expected.
Nevertheless, the shoe was comfy except for my toe digging into the front of it.
Returning these - but replacing with a half size bigger because other than the size issues, these shoes rock.
Bought a half size up after returning the first pair and they are COMFORTABLE. I love these shoes!
