I got this pair of shoes because I wanted the comfort and wearability some of the previous reviewers mentioned. I'm not disappointed. I play in a 4.5 league and enjoyed the attention the shoes gave me, and maybe it was psychological, but I felt a little quicker.
In recent years, I've tried Nike Courtballistec 4.3s, KSwiss Bigshots and these. The ASICS is my favorite. It's slightly less durable than the Courtballistecs, but is slightly better for me in fit and cushioning. A great shoe.
By far the best tennis shoe on the market. Pop in a set of decent inserts and this shoe cant be beat.
Amazingly comfortable shoes. The first time out of the box I played 8 hours of tough tennis and my feet were still feeling squishy and supportive the end of the day. Love these shoes and will buy more!!
Ordered flash yellow and love the color for playing tennis . I've used them for a few weeks and they are the most comfortable and supportive sneaker I've ever worn. I find myself wearing them everyday but the yellow is a little much for around town. I've decided to order the blue to wear for everyday use. After wearing these Asics I have no desire to wear anything else. The only con would be the price but you get the quality you pay for and these babies are worth every penny.
Asics has made the best tennis shoe on the market with superior cushion and stability than almost any shoe I have ever worn. Highly recommend this shoe, and most pro's without shoe contracts on tour are wearing Asics Res 5..
