Lots of support & cushion. Sturdy, yet light weight. These run true to size. Love these shoes!
This is my third pair - not a heavy tennis shoe but provides great support!
I just purchased my second pair of Asics Gel Resolution 5 after trying almost every other brand. I have high arches and ankles that like to roll and these shoes solved both of those problems!
I bought 3 pairs in size 9 last March and LOVE them. The fit, cushioning, and playability is perfect. I just bought 2 pair of white shoes, and the toebox is so tight that I can't wear the shoes. I'm afraid to get a half-size larger for fear that would be too large. It's probably best to try these on before buying because of the inconsistent sizing.
I like this shoe because it works for a narrow foot.
Shoe is comfortable, altho a bit heavy. I find that the arch support wears out after about 3-4 months of use (3-5 days of doubles tennis a week). Toe box seems to have gotten a bit wider this time around ---which is a good thing. Wish they'd bring back the Gel 3 - its more comfortable and a bit better fitting in the toe box.
I'm a long time Barricade II wearer and finally had no choice but to find another option. The toe box is more snug on this shoe than the Barricade II and also a bit shorter. I had to go up a half size to get the length I needed. Major points for being low to the ground, plush feeling, and having a very secure lacing system.
