Asics Gel-Contend 4 Running Shoes The GEL-Contend 4 is an entry-level running shoe for those with a neutral running gait. It features a rear GEL unit for cushioning, a removable sockliner and a rubberised Trusstic for midfoot support and torsion stability. Synthetic/Mesh Upper Mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforations in the fabric increase airflow to create a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. A laminate mid-cage swathes the foot in improved support and stability; it extends backwards to wrap the heel, promoting complete lockdown by anchoring you to the midsole and reducing in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. The padded tongue and heel collar supplement the shoe's snug-fitting nature and sit softly against the skin to reduce the risk of rubbing and blisters, because we know how those can ruin your day. An Ortholite X-40 sockliner lies atop a lightweight midsole to supply an extra layer of plush and hygienic step-in comfort. This premium product features higher rebound properties but also provides excellent moisture-management and a high level of breathability; so you stay damp-free and comfortable on hot, longer distance days. GEL Cushioned Midsole EVA resides in the midsole. Lightweight and resilient, it spares your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces. Embedded within the full-length midsole platform, is a Rearfoot GEL Cushioning System; the GEL unit is placed closer to your foot in order to replicate its natural tissue, it attenuates shock at heel-strike - preventing injury and encouraging a smooth transition to mid-stance. Durable Outsole A long-wearing rubber outsole completes the Gel-Contend 4; covering high-stress areas, it supplies sticky grip that resists the traumas of heel-strike and toe-off to supply you with a reliable and long-lasting running buddy. A rubberised Trusstic increases the shoe's stability; it reinforces the middle part
