Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The GEL-Contend 5 is made for Underpronation and Neutral.

  • Foot Type

    High arches
  • Push Off

    The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.
  • 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.


  • Foot Type

    Normal size arches
  • Push Off

    There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
  • How your foot contacts the ground

    The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more knee pain This was made for me! I've been having knee issues for a couple years now. Standing and walking for any period of time would be terrible. Last year I bought a pair and wore them until they were falling apart (literally tho the outside of the show is missing a ton of pieces ) and noticed my knee was so much better. I just ordered these and for the several days I've been wearing them, it's been heaven. I won't ever be wanting to wear any other shoes. It's a whole different experience with Asics and I'm just sorry I didn't discover them sooner. Thank you guys so much!
