A flexible synthetic leather upper gives much needed support and comfort making the Gel Solution Slam ideal for that tennis player looking for a great light weight, lower-profile shoe at a value price.

Asics make a great tennis shoe. This is probably my 6th Asics and once again it plays great. It runs smaller then the past Asics I've had and the break in time was maybe 2-3 days as oppose to right out of the box. It is also lighter then I'm used to but thats a good thing. Lots of support and solid shoe!
3 StarsOk but not as sturdy as the Speed

Had worn the Resolution for years but wanted something lighter. Bought the Speed and have been happy - it is really comfortable and super light. Thought I would change to the Slam for a less expensive shoe when I saw it on sale. It is just as comfortable as the Speed initially - no break-in is necessary but after wearing it 8 times on the hard courts, the heel area seems less cushy and it is making an ugly squooshy sound every step I take. Have called Asics to figure out what to do - I have 3 pairs!! I am 6'3" and weigh 200# - maybe a lighter player would not experience the same problem. The Speed seems more sturdy and have worn it longer without experiencing the problem above.

I was expecting less from this shoe but it was a nice surprise. It is a light shoe but also has good support and cushion.
