Asics Gel Contend 7: Who and what is it for? 

The Asics Gel Contend 7 is primarily designed for neutral runners and those who supinate (the heel tends to roll outward). But just like most Asics running shoes, it has ample space for orthotic inserts, so those with Plantar Fasciitis can benefit from it as well.

Because of the "whole-day" comfort provided by the shoe and its lightness, it's very suitable as a daily trainer and can be a long-distance running shoe as well. For activities outside running, it can also be your casual walking shoe or gym shoe. 

The Gel Contend 7: A conscientious step towards sustainability 

Asics, just like Adidas, is becoming more and more mindful in their shoe-making process to be more eco-friendly. With the Gel Contend 7, the brand made sure to use "fewer resources" to color the shoe's sockliner.
