I was a big fan of the Gel Resolution 4, and hated that it was replaced. Ordered my regular size and it was too small. The Gel Resolution 4 had a lot of room on top the big toe, the Gel Resolution 5 doesn't. When I moved up a half size, the shoe fit very well. The cushioning is outstanding and the arch support is perfect. Looking forward to logging many hours in this shoe.
Unlike some other reviewers, this is the first athletic shoe in a while I don't need to go half a size up. I find the toe box area to be longer so get true size 7. I also like that they are comfortable out of the box given the mesh design. Unlike some New Balance that I have to jam a pair of sox in the toe box to stretch, these are comfortable across the bunion area. I put my own custom orthotic in shoe -- don't think theirs is so cushiony as compared to my Babolat sneakers , for example. Only negative is that with my orthotic, feels like my heel comes out a little. Also, they seem to loosen up and is hard to tie to correct level of tightness . But overall find them more comfortable than leather style tennis sneakers - but not as cushiony.
This is at least my 3rd pair of Asics Gel Tennis Shoes.
They have great padding and support with breathable
sides and certainly have bright colors. My feet no longer hurt after long matches and I notice a difference in my knees and other joints. I love them and cannot even imagine playing in any other brands that I used to play in!
Absolutely love this shoe! Comfortable, functional and lasts on hard courts. I wear it 1/2 size larger than normal.
I have wide feet and always have trouble with my shoes. It takes several weeks until they break in -- they are stiff and hurt my feet. The ASICS shoe felt like a slipper from the first day. They are light and conform to your foot. I have recommended them to my friends and they all have different shaped feet and love them.
