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.
