The CONTEND™ 7 GS (Grade School) shoe evolves the franchise running collection’s design language with a new mesh upper that improves the fit while increasing airflow to keep feet cool. Functional for everyday adventures, this shoe also features a toe stitching and solid rubber outsole to improve durability.
Designed For Underpronation/Neutral
- Foot Type: High arches
- Push Off: The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.
- Considered Injuries: Plantar fasciitis, shin splints, ankle strain.
- 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.
Considered Injuries: Less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
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.
