The Asics GEL-Contend 2 Men's Running Shoes are designed for the low-mileage runner. A comfortable GEL cushioning in the rearfoot area lessens the impact from each hard step while the pre-laced lacing system hugs your foot for an ideal fit. The removable sockliner of the Asics GEL-Contend 2 Women's Running Shoes just adds to the custom comfortable fit and your own personal preference. Running in low light can be dangerous so the Asics GEL-Contend 2 Women's Running Shoes are reflective to help in making you visible to cars, cyclists and other runners. If you want a running shoe that is constructed for an entry-level runner than the Asics GEL-Contend 2 Women's Running Shoes is your shoe.
