The Contender is an archive silhouette that comes straight from the 1995 running catalogue. It was a lightweight style characterized by stability and support, created for entry level runners who were looking for a well cushioned shoe suitable to run on or off road.
Contender S sports very muted, casual, and tonal colors enhanced by premium materials for a comfortably lived-in look, that fits in perfectly for everyday life. Quality and comfort are combined to create the perfect balance for this streamlined silhouette: suede and textured mesh come together over a foundation of EVA foam for ultimate shock absorption.
This silhouette also represents Mizuno’s commitment to its very personal idea of style. It stands for quality and care in every aspect of sourcing and production. And it stands for every little detail having a purpose.
