Comments: This is a very basic, no frills tennis shoe that appears to have been designed around a running shoe
last, which makes sense given Asics is best known for their running shoes. It fits shorter and narrower than the Gel Resolution 5
and the Solution Speed. Because there are no structures that stiffen the upper of the shoe (no TPU shank, no forefoot cage, no
plastic heel supports, nothing), there is little to no break-in required. The shoe is very comfortable. According to Asic's site, this
shoe has Gel in the heel. Because of this, heel cushioning is very supple. There is a noticeable drop from heel to forefoot, and the
forefoot is not as cushioned as the heel. The heel cup is markedly lower than the heel cups in the GR5 and the Solution speed, so
much so that I had concerns about whether this shoe had adequate heel and ankle support. On court, these shoes have great
traction and were very squeaky. The outsole is not AHAR, but probably normal rubber, which I suspect is softer than AHAR. The
advantage to this softness is greater initial traction compared to the GR5. Because of the lack of support features in the upper,
lateral stability was very lacking on court. This is mitigated by the very low ride height in the forefoot. The low heel cup ended up
not being an issue in lateral movements. Overall, I am impressed that Asics managed to offer its flagship cushioning technology in
its entry level shoe. In contrast, Nike's City Court and Vapor COurt shoes do not offer Air cushioning. The adidas Bercuda have
adiprene, but are priced higher than the Gel Game Point. True to Asics fashion, the shoes are very cushioned in the heel and very

Comments: The bottoms are very soft. If you are a toe dragger, these will probably only last you 30 days at most.

Comments: I bought the Tommy Haas Asics and like them. I bought these because they seemed like a good deal
was liking Asics. Home run. These are great shoes at any price, let alone $70. They are light, comfortable, durable, stable. Most
comfy tennis shoe I've owned. Love them.

Comments: If you play at least 4 times a week, the outsoles will only last about 1-2 months. Not made to be

Comments: If you are a competitive player and play a lot during the week, these shoes won't last you very long.
