I actually returned these shoes. This was my second pair of Asics tennis shoes and I was hoping the narrowness of my prior pair was specific to that style, but I found these to be narrow as well. I still use my old Asics as my 2nd pair of shoes, but I prefer a shoe that has a more regular width. They seemed to be great quality (as expected from Asics), but the fit isn't perfect for me.
The gel solution speed has been my favorite shoe since the first version came out. The latest version seems to be just a bit roomier than the first and second version, there is a taller toe box I would say. I never had blisters from going straight into a match with the the first or second version, but I did with these. They still feel good, but the fit is just a bit different.
I usually wear the gel resolution series shoes and decided to try something different. These shoes are very light and comfortable even for hours of play. I haven't worn them a lot, but so far I really like them.
Loved everything about this shoe. Color, comfort, cushion and durability. I'll be buying it again.
You feel the quality of this shoe. I have a cheaper pair of Asics that are nice, but these cradle your feet and you feel the cushion, but very stable feeling. My foot is wide and I return shoes often because they are too tight in the width of the toebox. Great shoe.
I have been wearing Asics gel resolution speed for about 2- 3 years and they are the best tennis shoes I have ever worn. I play tennis 3 or 4 times a week and these shoes are great. The new model 3 is an improvement over the 2 which I thought would never happen. These shoes are a hair more stable than the 2, just as light and felt BETTER right out of the box. I cannot say enough good things about these shoes. I will continue to purchase and wear them. As an aside I remove the inserts to give a better feel on the court and remove a little bulk and weight.
Have always been a fan of Asics. Have purchased many running shoes, with the Asics brand. Frankly am disappointed as, the comfort and stability that i thought would be there is , apparently not. Have worn the shoe only to the gym , and looks and feels like i am wearing a "box". I realize the shoe is designed to be worn on the tennis court, but purchased it for personal wear, only as a knee injury requires me to wear a shoe with great stability and comfort. Maybe on the court it would perform better. Will probably sell it on craigs list , or e bay.
I find the ASICS shoes to have a comfortable and solid feel to them. My foot is narrow and I am pleased with the fit. Another thing I notice about ASICS shoes is that my feet are firmly on top of the shoes, giving no uneven heal or toe wear. The color is nice too.
I used to get the Gel Solution Speed 2's. While I really like that shoe it did take a little bit to break in because of the material on the upper of the shoe. But this new model has the webbing patter which lets it flex a lot easier. Comfortable and durable.
