ASICS Women’s Gel-Contend 8 (Black/Orchid)


The GEL-CONTEND™ 8 running shoe provides good cushioning, support, and durability.

A jacquard mesh upper stretches with the foot’s natural motion to create a comfortable fit. Synthetic stitching on the overlays helps create a more supportive foothold.

The midsole also features GEL™ technology and AMPLIFOAM™ cushioning: increasing durability while creating a softer feel underfoot.
