The GEL-CONTEND™ 8 running shoe provides good cushioning, support, and durability.
A jacquard mesh upper stretches with the foot's natural motion and creates a comfortable fit.
Meanwhile, the synthetic stitching on the overlays helps create a more supportive foothold.
The midsole features GEL™ technology and AMPLIFOAM™ cushioning.
These technologies help increase durability while creating a softer feel underfoot.
