5 Stars Comfort and Support

I have become a fan of Asics because of the gel insole. They keep my feet from hurting after the match and especially after tournaments. Good shoe all around, traction, durability, comfort and support.

4 Stars On sale A very good deal

These shoes had a pretty quick break in period, good stability as advertised, a very good deal at the sale price! The tongue slips around a little bit, but I just may have to change the lace holes at the top of the shoe.

5 Stars NICE!

Comfortable right out of the box. Was having knee pain after playing and this shoe helped relieve the pain. couldn't be more happy with the shoe, comfort, price and delivery were exactly what I wanted. First time trying Asics, always wore adidas, Asics just won me over.

5 Stars comfortable and knee friendly

I was wearing different shoes before until I felt pain on my knee. I tried the knee support and pain reliever but it never work. Until a friend told me to try using asics. I got the chalenger 8 and it was a relief because of the softness of the gel. Never worn different shoes but the chalenger series. I have the colors white, blue and now the black one.

This is a solid shoe at a great price. The shoe is slightly heavier than some other Asics tennis shoes, but not to where it affects your movement. Very stable and comfortable shoe.

The Asics shoes always fit my feet well, they are light, break in quickly and are always stylish. I try to buy two pairs all the time so I constantly have two pairs of shoes that are worn in.

5 Stars Good Shoe

Bought this pair to use as my everyday walk-around shoes. Certainly can be used on the court, but I prefer the Gel 5's for the serious stuff. Comfort is the main selling point and they don't disappoint.

I only wear Asics. They offer comfort, performance and style. My only complaint is the laces. This is my 6th pair of Asics in 2 years and the laces always break. They quality of the nylon wrap always freys and separates from the lace core. They should really improve or at least include a second set.

5 Stars great

Comfortable as soon as I put them on. Needed them for conditioning and didn't need to break them in at all!

I was a runner for 20 years and found Asics to be the BEST of all the shoes. This tennis shoe has the same comfort and support as the running shoe.

5 Stars Good Fit

I have had some issues with Asics being a little narrow. These are not and very comfortable. Although I have not worn them to play, I'm confident they will be fine

Earlier I used Nike, Adidas, NewBalance, Kswiss, yonex. This is a very comfortable and balanced shoe.
