I've tried Adidas and Wilson tennis shoes recently, and nothing has come even close to these. These Gel Resolutions have great lateral support and a solid feeling while still being light and nimble. I wear them with a pair of Blue Superfeet inserts, because I over-pronate (have flat feet), and this setup works better than anything I have ever tried on the court. My feet don't slip. The size is spot on. Lateral support is great. No cramping in my feet like often happens in other shoes (esp. Wilson Rush Pro with Superfeet Orange, the shoe wasn't big enough to accommodate my foot and the insole and I was always cramping from too much pressure on the top of my foot). Overall, they work absolutely wonderfully for me.
5 StarsExcellent Value

This is the best tennis shoe I've ever worn: light weight, but firm with great lateral support. this shoe isn't going to slip out from under you when that lousy opponent hits the ball behind you.

The asics gel 5 rules them all. ive tried most of them all nike lunar ballistec adidas barricade and adizero but asics is the best . The shoe provides superior comfort excellent ventilation outstanding support and durability especially for those long hours everyday tennis ! Not like those toe jamming barricades or unbreathable lunar ballistics or uncomfortable adizeros all these shoes have pros too but the asics has no cons enjoy!

This is the 3rd pairs of the same model tennis shoes I bought for my son, who plays tennis a lot. After tried several models from Adidas and Babolat, my son likes this one the most. It is lighter than Adidas Barricade while last longer. Another feature kids like this model of shoes is the choice of colors. They like those bright colors!

i had an aversion to Asics tennis shoes for the longest time, i always felt the fit me oddly in the toe area. i finally thought to try going a half size smaller than my usual shoe size and what do you know, they fit perfectly. i love that they brought back this color too!
