The GEL-CONTEND 6 running shoe offers lasting support and excellent comfort for running, commuting or all-day casual-wear. In this update, we've made the heel collar even softer for a silky feel against the skin. Ample cushioning comes from rearfoot GEL® technology, an AMPLIFOAM midsole and an OrthoLite sockliner. Support comes from an internal heel counter and overlays that help to hold the foot in place while the rubber outsole and toe reinforcement give this shoe better durability. A breathable mesh upper promotes plenty of airflow to keep your feet comfortable and happy. Stay on track to hit your training targets with the GEL-CONTEND 6 shoe, while experiencing excellent comfort and improved support.
