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 solid 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.

Find the Right Fit
How Your Foot Contacts the Ground
The outer side of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with little or no normal pronation, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg.
The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
The foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.
There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.
Manmade and fabric mesh upper features a laminate midcage for added support and stability
Lace up closure for a secure fit with a newly designed, softer padded collar and tongue
