Comments: Lesson learned - order your true size or deal with the hassle of a return. Shoe now fits great (can't wait
to try them out later today)! Also bought the Babolat Propulse 4, which to me sets the standard for a tennis performance shoe.
From: Anon, 4/13
Comments: I'm a big Asics fan, but the Resolution 4 is a big disappointment. If you had the Res 3, then the 4 is a
completely different shoe. The 3 fit like a glove, which molded around your foot plus there was more cushion, arch support and
padding. The 4 has none of these characteristics. Even the shoe laces and tongue are too short for me. After switching to the 4, I
have developed foot and ankle problems. I even wrote the company but as of yet to hear back.
From: Ken, 4/13
Comments: I use these shoes for pickleball which is played on the same surface as tennis, but the court is smaller.
It took a couple hours of wearing the shoes to form to my arch, but after that they felt very comfortable and secure. I have a
narrower foot so the half size smaller recommendation worked well for me. I was using an Asics running shoes before these so
that helped me know what size to get. I saw great results from these shoe. They gripped the court very well, were great for side to
side movement, and very well when I had to hurry to the net and make a sudden stop. Needless to say I am very pleased, and they
look pretty cool too.
From: Ian, 4/13
Comments: Great shoe. Took me few days to feel comfortable. I ordered my normal size (8.5) and yes they are a tad
long but I laced them right up to the last eyelet and the fit is comfortable. I'm glad I ordered my normal size as I think a size lower
would have been tight across the toe box. The quality of these Asics is evident from the time you hold the shoes. Superbly
constructed and well designed. The more I wear them the more comfortable I feel in them. Grip and stability is very good. So far
no durability issues. I play in a very hot climate and so far the ventilation is ok. I will definitely consider another pair.
From: John, 4/13
Comments: Bought a pair of Gel Res 4's and loved the gel cushioning due to the pounding my knees take playing a
lot of tennis and basketball. But after a few months the gel started forming a ridge under the arch of my right foot so that I
started to experience a lot of pain in that foot. So thinking this was a fluke I bought a new pair and it started doing the same
thing within 2 weeks! So I returned it and am now trying the Yonex Power Cushion 308. Hope they will fare better.
From: Barry, 4/13
Comments: I personally found the 1/2 size down to be perfect for me. I wouldn't fully say that they don't need any
break-in, but didn't take long to fix that. Felt great after breaking them in a bit, and gives good lateral support. They cheaped out
on the design, on one side of the shoe the color pattern isn't stitched, it's a sticker. We'll see how long that lasts, but other than it
feels very well constructed.
From: Shelby, 4/13
Comments: These fit fantastic right out of the box. I ordered Asics because they fit my feet better than any other
shoe. I have had Asics runners for years and these fit great too. Not sure about the 1/2 size over, but I wear 14's so maybe it's
not the case at that large size. Wore them for 4 hours this afternoon, on concrete, and they feel like shoes I've owned for 6
months. Can't wait to get them out on the court this weekend. Thanks Asics for a great shoe, and TW for a great price.
From: John, 4/13
Comments: Coming from the Nike Breathe Frees and a variety of barricades (size 8), the 1/2 down didn't work for
me. Going 1/2 size down created a really tight squeeze. The shoes are a touch longer, but I think the width is a little tighter than
normal. If your width is snug or tight, then do not go down a size. This will result in a shoe fitting where you are basically busting
at the seams in the forefoot. Definitely do not buy unless you can try them on.
From: H, 3/13
Comments: I succumbed to the flashy blue/yellow - I love color combos. Undoubtedly the most expensive sneaks I
have ever bought for myself (mind you we buy $150 customized Nikes for our son and $60-$80 soccer cleats for both kids). I had
loved the fit & airiness/light as air feel of past less expensive Asics. After 6 hours of play, they had remained a little narrow fitted.
I could feel a slight ache. I have normal sized width feet. I wouldn't have minded so much if I had bought the other colors at only
$79 but for this price, I am not a totally satisfied customer. I like them, will wear them out because of the g/tee (they don't look
like they will outlast my notorious toe dragging!) but I would think twice on spending that much again on myself! Even though it
was a bday present from my kids/wife, I would have gone cheaper. I would rate this a 4 our of 5.
From: Sushiray, 3/13
Comments: I've always worn Nike for tennis, but decided to give the Asic Gel Resolution 4 a try because I had a pair
of running shoes from Asics that were very comfortable. They felt good, at least for a couple of weeks, but then I quickly started
to developed a sore achilles tendon on my left foot. I didn't immediately relate it to the change of shoes, but was upset and unable
to play for over a month. Some suggested that the new shoes might have been part of the problem (which made sense to me), so
once recovered I went back to my Nike Ballistecs and no more pain with good stability on the court! Bottom line, I don't think the
flashy look is worth the pain and suffering.
From: Paolo, 3/13
Comments: I have to offer a mea culpa to those who said that the right fit in the Asics Gel Resolution 4s is to get
half a size smaller. They were right. What threw me off was the initial snugness of the shoes around the sides of my foot at half a
size smaller. After about 1 hour, the shoe molded itself around my foot and provided a very secure feel. So to repeat and confirm
the advice of others, get these shoes at half a size smaller (e.g. get 8 1/2 if you're a size 9). I apologize for any confusion my
earlier comments may have caused.
From: Roger, 2/13
Comments: I'm not sure why some are saying to get a size smaller than their regular shoe sizes with the Asics Gel
Resolution 4s. Coming from a size 9 in the Nike SparQ cross trainers and a size 9 Nike Vomero running shoes, I found size 9 in
the Asics GR4s to be a perfect fit. The rest of the other comments regarding this shoe's stability, traction, and look I completely
From: Roger, 2/13
Comments: Excellent fit, stability, grip and look. Best tennis shoe I have worn. My experience is exactly in line with
Tennis Warehouse's recommendation -- The Resolution 4s run 1/2 half size large. The fit is long and narrow with solid heel
support. Right out of the box, as with any higher end shoe, the soles are best after at least a couple hours of wear. The tongue
remains in place even when laced tightly. At just over 15oz this is not a light shoe, however, I have not found a sub 15oz shoe
that offers stability, durability and comfort. The 6 month guarantee is a nice backup, however, even playing 3x per week on hard
court these shoes hold up like a tank (very little rubber loss) while still providing a solid foothold. I highly recommend this shoe
for those with slightly narrow feet -- the standard width of this shoe feels more like a B than a D providing a nice option for those
who are usually relegated to the less stylish New Balance offerings.
From: Adam, 1/13
Comments: This shoe is fantastic. The best comment I can give is that when playing in them I don't notice anything
about my shoes. They become invisible on me. Asics is serious about making performance shoes, and this is no exception. I'm
200lbs, and any guy over 180 really needs to try these because the Gel cushioning is way way better than Nike Air for the big
boys. I don't have any foot or leg pain after matches with these shoes. They supply amazing grip and support as well. For me
there are no cons accept they are sort of expensive.
From: Alex, 1/13
Comments: I normally wear mid-cut shoes but I decided to try these when I was unable to acquire the Prince Viper
VI and other options in my size. I've worn these shoes a few times and I am happy with them, even though they don't provide the
support of the mids I have worn. I need to wear elastic/velcro supports with these, but overall I think the support, stability and
comfort are good. By the way, I originally ordered a half-size smaller because of the recommendations, but those were too small
and I ended up with my normal size.
From: Terry, 1/13
Comments: I purchased the Asics Gel Resolution using the recommendation of TW of buying a half size smaller
than what you normally wear. There was enough length but this recommendation doesn't factor in the narrow fit across the
forefoot for the half size smaller. They seemed okay at first but during my first game with them they really hurt my feet. I normally
wear a size 12 1/2,"D" width, and I don't have wide feet so I ordered a size 12. They hurt so much I can't wear them and I think
I've wasted my money. This recommendation was completely wrong for me.
From: John, 1/13
Comments: Very comfortable shoe that play low to the ground, but the tongue on the left shoe kept falling to the
side, no matter how tightly I tied it. It was very annoying. The toe also started to separate from the shoe and I only play on them
maybe once a week. They are not constructed with durability in mind. I'm on the fence about these shoes. Maybe I'll give them
From: Jonathan, 1/13
Comments: These are not only the best tennis shoes I have ever owned, they might be the best sneakers for any
sport I have ever owned. Great support, comfort, fit, fairly light weight, and a well-designed toe box. One of my strengths is my
footwork and speed, and with these shoes I don't lose any of that. On the toe box, this is really the first time with any tennis shoe
I have had that my big or pinky toes are never sore after I play. Miraculous! They felt completely broken in after about 2 hours of
play, no problem. I cannot possibly imagine how some folks claimed to have worn them out in one day. How was this possible
under any conditions? I play 4 hours a week of singles and do straight drills on a handball court 1-2 hours a week and they have
held up great. Now that they are on sale, I grabbed another pair for next season! Great job Asics!
From: Chris, 1/13
Comments: They are very comfortable and the outsole lasted about 3 months, playing 3-4 times a week. However,
in about 2 1/2 months time, the cushion inside broke before I wore out the shoes. I started to feel soreness on the balls of my
feet. Nonetheless, I will look forward to some improvement in the new version.
From: Brian, 1/13
Comments: Probably the best shoes I've had since the Asics GR2. I've gone through 4 pairs of KSwiss BigShots, but
would still have sore calves due mostly to my extremely flat feet. I tried the GR4s in hopes of a miracle cure, and it worked. For
me, they provide max cushioning and great stability/performance on par with the BigShots. I've got about 15 hours on them, with
little noticable wear. I'm 6 ft and 205 lbs, and not a ballerina footwork-wise. Even if I blow the cushioning out before the
warranty, I'd buy another pair no doubt. I have slight Morton's Toe, I bought the regular size, and wore them around the house
1/2 a day for break-in. I don't use any orthotics in my tennis shoes.
From: Steve, 12/12
Comments: I play tennis 5 to 6 days a week, usually 2 hours at a time, half singles and half doubles. I am a 4.0
player. I was a huge fan of the R2's, wearing them daily for 10 months, but I couldn't buy any more when I decided to get a couple
of more. Went to the R3's, but they were not the same shoe, so I was a bit disappointed I hadn't snapped up some R2's. The R4
caused some consternation because of the half size smaller suggestion. After reading reviews, I went with their recommendation.
For me, that was a mistake. I have Morgan's Toe, which a number of you do as well. That is when your second toe is longer than
your big toe. I wore the smaller size twice in matches and my 2nd toe let me know it did not like being jammed at the front. It is
still sensitive. However, I have now played comfortably in the size I regularly wear and find the R4's are a fine shoe, much like the
2's. TW worked with me and softened the blow of 2 pairs, one which I couldn't wear, but which I have since sold to another Asics
fan. In summation, if you've got Morgan's Toe, then buy your regular size! You'll be glad you did.
From: Dennis, 12/12
Comments: I did not like these Asics shoes, and found them very uncomfortable.
From: Marcos, 12/12
Comments: These shoes feel really good but the insides wore out on me very quickly, in like 3 months. I'm 6'2"
and 220 lbs (on a good day) and I'm hard on my shoes. I use inserts but the cushion built into the sole was obliterated in 3
months. Typical for me is about six months, so this was a disappointment. The old Gel Resolution 2s lasted a year. These shoes
are freakishly long. When I tried my size I looked like the Keebler elf. If you have wide feet order down.
From: Ron, 11/12
Comments: Very nice and comfortable shoes from Asics. I play 2-3 days a week on hard courts, singles and
doubles, for 2-3 hours each time. I noticed after 2 months of play that there is a durability issue with the outsole at the front.
You can see the white rubber under the black. There is not a hole yet, but it seems that will be really soon. If the durability lasts
for 4-5 months its not worth it for the money these shoes costs. I shall ask for guarantee. The 1/2 size down its true.
From: Kostas, 11/12
Comments: Well constructed, supportive and attractive shoe. Fits true to size. I played with them for a year without
a problem other than the weight. I would prefer a lighter shoe.
From: R.L., 11/12
Comments: I got these shoes and felt amazing right out of the box. My shoe
size is in between 9 and 9-1/2. There's a tiny bit of extra room up in the front but its barely noticeable. They are super
comfortable and have great support. I love them so much I only wear them for important tennis events. Highly recommend them.
From: Javier, 11/12
Comments: It's interesting to read reviews from people who have worn out these shoes in as little as one day. I
honestly have no idea how they do that, and I seriously wonder if they have stride/gait issues. I'm heavy (200 lbs) and play an
aggressive, physical game nearly five days a week. These shoes still last me a few months (and yes, I too have used the wear
guarantee for a replacement pair). With regard to people who have fit/sizing issues, I can really relate. I've been through a heap
of tennis shoes in my search for the right fit. Adidas Barricades came closest -- though still too narrow for my feet -- but when I
finally tried on the Asics Gel Resolution 3 (last year) my feet found a home. The Gel Resolution 4 is even better! And while I might
be the only person saying this, I disagree about the sizing issue. I've compared several pairs of GR3's with GR4's and there is not
a half-size difference between them. Instead, the GR4's are simply a little longer or roomier in the toe. The heel cup, arch, and
seat for the ball of your foot are all in the exact same place! Anyway, it's not a light shoe, but that's the price you pay for
durability and stability. If your foot doesn't need the support, there are lighter shoes out there (including some by Asics). Also,
while I own pairs of GR4's in black/lime and white/blue, the charcoal/orange are real knock-outs! And, if you can play well
enough to justify the attention you'd get wearing the Tennis Warehouse exclusive rainbow explosion GR4, you'll definitely get a lot
of attention. I saw a pair "in person" when I visited TW's little showroom in San Luis Obispo but didn't think I could pull
off actually wearing them on a court. Score one for modesty!
From: Dan, 10/12
Comments: These are the best shoes I have ever worn, including my Asics GT running shoe. The shoe's interior gel
cushion is excellent and molds to your feet leaving no gap between your feet and shoes interior, so it feels part of your body when
you move or lift your feet. Also this feels a lot more cooler and lighter than the other tennis shoes I used to wear. Well worth the
From: Prashant, 10/12
Comments: My son has always loved all of the Asics Gel Resolutions. However, I recently ordered 2 pairs for him.
He went through the Orange/Grey pair in three days of practice, and just ruined the black pair today after 5 days of practice. I've
already mailed them back to Asics which I always do. They are quick to replace them, but 2 pairs in less than 10 days, and now he
has no shoes!
From: Rose, 10/12
Comments: Asics makes thoughtfully made shoes. I've worn every iteration of this shoe and they've all been great.
The uppers have vacillated between firm and soft but that's about the only change between generations. I really enjoy the fact that
the cushioning and traction last until I wear a hole in the outsole. The components of the other shoe manufacturers' wear at
different rates so you'll have a bald shoe and/or a shoe that's lost it's cushioning before you can submit the shoe for a warranty
which makes the last few weeks a miserable experience. The Asics are the lone exception.
From: Andy, 10/12
Comments: After my old Nike shoe developed a hole in the sole after 1 year of use (which I consider great in terms
of durability), I decided on something different as I over-pronate and have ankle issues. So, I decided to get this after comparing
them to the adidas barricade, which I liked due to the micoach which I later found out to be worthless and highly inaccurate. My
first impression with these are that they are really nice shoes. I thought they would look ridiculous, but they are awesome, super
comfortable for my long narrow feet, and the best part, they only required a 1 week break-in playing 3-4 hours each day! The
only cons would be that they are a bit too heavy, and Asics uses cheap materials on the edge (it has started to peel a bit, it
has been 2 months). But other than that, it's a great shoe! Amazing! Well worth the money. The sole seems durable and doesn't
show any wear yet!
From: Ritap, 8/12
Comments: Just for a little background on myself, I loved the GR2 but didn't like the GR3. I play about 4 to 5 hours
a week (matches, class, cardio tennis) and am a big guy at 6'2" and 230lbs. The insides held up for about three months, then the
cushioning just gave out even with Superfeet insoles. I hoped for longer but its average for me. So I'd say they're fine but didn't
inspire me to stock up. I would agree with others that this shoe is long and after time on the court will loosen up to a wide fit. I fit
near a EE width and were swimming in these near the end.
From: Ron, 8/12
Comments: I've played 4 matches at a 3.5 level wearing these shoes for the first time. My style is all-court
centered on attacking and approaching the net. Prior to these shoes I've used adidas ZX750
marathon running shoes for a decade. Here's what I like so far: durable soles. Here's what I
don't like so far: too heavy, slow to run towards the net compared to running shoes, and the fit. If
you have unusually long big toes these shoes may be for you, as the shape is so pointed long
in the big toe area. Also, my foot measures halfway between 10 1/2 and 11, but the size 10
in this shoe is too, too long! It's an awesome shoe, but just sized so strange, and so strange
in shape in the big-toe region. I'll give them another dozen matches, but most likely will be
returning to running shoes to be faster on foot again.
From: Krang, 8/12
Comments: Simply the best shoe I have worn. I coach high school tennis and play at a
high level so when I'm standing on my feet a lot this shoe brings a lot of comfort to the court. My feet
feel like they are sitting on a bed of pillows and playing with them is even better. My legs
don't feel tired and my feet are not sore. The greatest thing is I don't feel the court every
step I take but I still have the support and stability. This shoe is even more comfortable
than my Asics running shoe of comparable price. I would highly recommend this shoe.
From: Wes, 7/12
Comments: I've been wanting to try these for a long time but I have quite narrow feet so I have stuck with Nikes. I
just got tired of the tread on the Nikes wearing out in a month and getting slick around the front of the sole. I have worn the
GR4's a couple of times and am very impressed so far. Super comfy and supportive. I went down a 1/2 size and it fits like a glove.
Amazing traction, I can turn on a dime, and the flex point is perfect. It reminds me a bit of the Propulse but even better. I'm
From: Christo, 7/12
Comments: I've worn Resolutions since Asics first made them and they are great for wide, flat feet like mine. I have
really liked the last two models made especially for Tennis Warehouse, all yellow and then all neon. These are the most
comfortable shoes made for any surface. Love them! Tennis Warehouse, tell them to bring back the red, white and blue ones; I
still have mine but they're in shambles.
From: Jim, 7/12
Comments: I received this shoe almost two weeks ago. These are by far the best
tennis shoes I've ever had. They are so comfortable and supportive. And yes,
they run a 1/2 size bigger (buy them half size smaller - especially if
you have narrow feet). Thanks to Tennis Warehouse for knowing your
From: John, 7/12
Comments: Just thought I would vouch for what Tim said. I bought a pair based on customer reviews saying that
you should buy your normal size. I have a narrow foot and they felt just okay. I didn't wear them out on the court because I
wanted to try the 1/2 size smaller. After making a 2nd purchase from TW, I found the smaller size to be the best fit for me due to
the shoe being more snug. Unsure why, but length was not the problem. Not a big deal, but I ended up having to send back the
other pair. Great shoe overall in terms of support and cushioning. Not sure about durability, but I am not that hard on my shoes
and that should be covered by the warranty. Bottom line, wider foot should be the normal sizing, narrower foot should try 1/2
From: Anon, 7/12
Comments: I went through a lot of pain in the achilles in both feet and kept using Nike shoes until I
did some research and found many positive comments about Asics. I switched to the
Gel Resolution and all my foot pains were gone immediately. These shoes are the best
I've worn in my life. Some guys in my tennis class folowed me and now the entire class
is playing on Asics shoes!. The comfort, traction, and overall performance is top notch.
Durability is good enough to last until the moment you need to replace them to ensure
you get the best cushioning. Comparing the Gel Res 4 to the 3 there's a nice upgrade with a lower profile for an
enhanced feel. Although they provide confort out of the box they take 5 to 6 sessions to
perform at their peak. Keep up the good work Asics.
From: Carlos, 7/12
Comments: The Barricades gave me plantar fascitis and so, since I love my Asics running
shoes I've bought these. So far my feet feel much better. I'm concerned about the durability
because of what Will said below. I guess I'll just have to see. Glad to know there is a
warranty. Gotta look into that. Didn't know. My running shoes do have a hole along the toe
where the mesh is. But I gotta say that it doesn't bother me that much. My toe's not poppin
out or anything and I'm not wearin' em' out on the town.
From: John, 7/12
Comments: After wearing only Barricades and Court Ballistics the past 5-10 years, I can honestly say these are the
best tennis shoes I have ever worn. The comfort the cushioning provides caused them to mold around my feet on the first wear.
There was no break in period and I wore them after 1 day of use to my tournament. After hours on the court each day, the traction
and tread these shoes provided was terrific. I did not order a size up and found the fit to be the same as Barricades. These shoes
are lighter than Barricades or Court Ballistics and so far have outperformed them in every area for me. I think I may have switched
From: Ryan, 7/12
Comments: Well, where do I start. I was a huge New Balance kid because I have wide feet. However, I
had an injury in my foot last year and my doctor said it was probably due to the shoes I was wearing, so I switched to
the GR4's for tennis season. I'm a 10.5 and I got a 10.5, tried on a 10, not enough room for the top of my feet because
I have wide feet. Tiny bit of extra room with the 10.5, a cm worth or so, so I had a Kleenex jammed into each one just
in case my toe would jam, it never did. I wear double socks as well, or some Nike Elite socks. Extremely comfortable,
very breathable with the mesh uppers, no problems with rolling my ankle or anything. They are pretty low cut, but you
get used to it. After about three months of high school tennis, 18 hours/6 days a week, the outsole is finally starting to
wear thru, thank god for the durability warranty right? I was so impressed with these Asics I actually now run/cross
train in Asics as well, keep it up! P.S. I mean I love the look of my shoes, I got the Navy/White because I love looking
classy on the court in a polo, I'm definitely getting the Green/Black ones next, they look tight.
From: Will, 6/12
Comments: Just got them last night. No tennis playing yet, but first impression. They fit great! My
advice, buy these in normal size. Fit relatively the same as previous models (also have the 2 and 3). I really think these
fit the arch and ball of the foot where they should, don't order 1/2 size down unless you have to. I'm a former Nike guy
(Breathe Frees & Courtballistecs), but now a happier Asics guy! I have a fairly normal foot, low to normal arch, but wider
in the toe box. Nike's always pinch me and rub there, Asics don't. Great shoe!
From: Mitch, 6/12
Comments: Perfect shoes in every way, they mold to my feet, no break-in period, major comfort on
forefoot area, feels like walking on pillows, very fast shoes, no complaints here. I don't know why TW says one should
order 1/2 size smaller?. My normal size is the correct size for me. If you use Babolat high end shoes, try Gel Resolution
From: Moe, 6/12
Comments: Far and away, the best tennis shoes I've ever worn. Comfortable, quick, supportive. Uppers
have held up great. No, the soles dont last like barricades, but the Resolutions are a much better fitting, better feeling
From: Troy, 6/12
Comments: The Gel Resolution series shoes were great. Both the 2 and 3. Just when Asics had a good
thing, they messed it up.
From: Rich, 6/12
Comments: I've been asking for a warranty on these shoes for sometime and they finally got
one. I had quit wearing them because I couldn't afford a $120 pair of shoes every month.
With the warranty, you would have thought they'd have beefed up the outsole a bit but they
didn't. Wore a hole through the mesh upper within two days. Had to play with that hole for
2 more weeks until the outsole wore through. As much as I love Asics, these are not
serious tennis shoes. Too much mesh for heavy side-to-side movement and pounding on
hard courts. Sending these back for my free pair and based on how these performed, I will
not be purchasing another pair. High performance tennis players should steer clear!
From: Will, 6/12
Comments: For me the Asics Gel Resolution 3 was the best fitting Resolution. The Gel Resolution 4 is not
cosmetic update. The toe box is narrowed and pointy. I ordered an 11 and 11.5 and neither ones fit, so I had to send
From: HCB, 5/12
Comments: I have wide feet and a high arch-instep and these shoes are by far the most comfortable I've
My shoe of choice has been Nike Vapors -- a great shoe -- but these Asics Gel Resolutions will now be my tennis shoe
of choice. I
played nine hours of hard court tennis at Dartmouth over the weekend and had none of the tenderness in my feet that
from my previous shoes. I followed TW's advice and bought a half size smaller and the fit is the best I've ever had. By
the way, they
fit right out of the box but after 10-12 hours on the court they seem to have molded to my foot.
From: Warren, 5/12
Comments: I've been wearing Asics exclusively since the Gel Resolution 2's, and these incorporate the
of the 2's and 3's. I did order the 1/2 size smaller, and the fit was more snug than with the 3's. At first I worried I'd
need to go up
to my regular size, but I tried on a brand new pair of 2's to compare, and the fit was identical. After a few times wearing
they feel incredible. They have the fantastic fit of the 2's with the added stability and improved durability of the 3's.
Plus, it's great
to see they made another colorway. Great job Asics and keep up the good work!
From: John, 5/12
Comments: I was wearing Asics Gel Challenger 8's, and loved the fit and stability. Unfortunately, I wore
soles in both shoes in 3 months. They were guaranteed, and I moved into the Asics Gel Resolution 4's. Nice fit
right out of the box, and true to size. I noticed better toe room, and a very light feel. Hopefully they will last a little
From: Alan, 5/12
Comments: After wearing for a few weeks I probably won't buy again. I am a 10.5 and ordered a 10.5,
seemed great at first but now my feet ache on the sides, right where the Asics logo meets the sole. It's too tight/small
after a few hours of play my feet will hurt there all night.

with the Gel Advantages for two years, was impressed with the fit and cushioning, and decided to give the R3s a try. At
I walked around in them, I wasn't impressed; however in their natural habitat, the hard court, I discovered the R3s had
technology that wouldn't weigh me down. It's sleek design gave me an edge moving around on the court. The rubber
griped like no other shoe. Played with them for the first time yesterday. The mid sole is like having McPherson
your feet! My only regret is I wish I could have purchased them in white. If you prefer the hard courts like myself, I'd
recommend you try on pair of Asics Gel Resolutions. Asics Gel Resolution: the Resolution to a thousand fruitless

Comments: Been using Nike Vapors for 6 or 7 years, tried the Gel Resolution 4s on and
was sold on the fit. I'm tired of wearing out soles in 3 weeks, so I hope the Gel Resolution 4s have good last, a 6 month
is nice. So far I love them, my only minor quip is that I wish the sides came up around the ankles just another 1/4" or
From: Mike, 4/12
Comments: I am a long time K-Swiss fan. I have an arthritic knee and asked a TW Rep
to recommend a shoe that would be good for my knee. They recommended the Gel Resolution 4's. My normal size is
size 12 and
the rep recommended size 11 1/2 (1/2 size smaller). I tried the 11 1/2 and they felt really tight in the toe box. So I
back and got a size 12. The size 12 felt better but still felt tight in the toe box. I tried to
wear the size 12 in the house to break them over 2 days but it did not seem to help.
So I called TW and asked them if the Gel Resolution 4's would stretch out after playing tennis in
them. They advised they had the same issue with toe box feeling tight and after
playing 3 weeks they stretched out and they felt great. So I thought I would try them.
So I played in them 1 time and the shoes stretched out and they now feel great. No
more issue with the toe box. They seem to be lighter and have more cushion than the

Comments: These fit great right out of the box in my usual size. GR3s needed some break-in time.
better than Gel Resolution 3s, too. May be marginally wider but still good for narrow feet.
From: Jim, 4/12
Comments: I ordered the Asics GR4's a 1/2 size smaller as TW suggests. While the shoes were in transit,
I then read some of the comments here advising not to follow TW's suggestion to order a 1/2 size smaller. I then
began to regret not reading the comments first before ordering and worried about the possibility of having to take the
time to return shoes that might be too small. Well, the shoes arrived; I tried them on; and the shoes fit perfectly.
Thanks TW for knowing your products well! The shoes look great (Black & Green) and feel great. Before I first tried the
Asics GR line, I tried other top models of other name brands but was only satisfied with Nike Air Courtballistics (2.3
only) or Nike Air Zoom Breathes. The Asics GR4 has now become my top pick.
From: P. Simon, 4/12
Comments: came from Head Speed Pro, which I really liked. They don't
make them any more, so I tried these. The shoes fit very well around
the foot (yes, they are 1/2 smaller size - normal size 12, ordered both
12 and 11.5, and kept the smaller). But I am having really hard time
with the way the the sole is designed - my feet seem to be pushing into
the heel too much (heel is in lower point relative to the front of the
foot). Additionally, the sole is very spongy/soft in the heel (which
would be good/comfortable if the foot was positioned forward). The sole
design is causing my heel and achilles tendon to be in a great pain.
Would love to wear them for comfort, but it's too painful to play in
From: Jan, 3/12
Comments: I give the GR4's a 7 out of 10. This shoe feels better than the GR3 but not as good as
the GR2. I have a wide foot and the toe box in this shoe is a little too tight. Also, if you
like to use different insoles such as Superfeet, I'd order your regular size, not the 1/2
From: Greg, 3/12
Comments: I've used Adidas so far, but decided to try something new.
Got the GR4 and the Propulse 3. GR4 is a better fit for regular and
narrow feet. Propulse 3 should be better for wide feet. Do not get 1/2
From: Dimm, 3/12
Comments: For all who have used the Gel Resolution 3's and thought the toe box to be
too big, well go for the Gel Resolution 4's, because they shrank up the toe box
enough that I prefer the Gel Resolution 3's and am having a difficult time breaking the new 4's in even after 6 sets.
different for everyone
according to sizing, but the shoe outside of sizing is AWESOME! For
those who thought the GR3's were comfortable will find the GR4's a bit
tighter in the toebox. Otherwise, they are the same great shoe.
From: Chris. 3/12
Comments: This shoe was just as comfortable and perfect as all the other Asics I've had. I highly
as the best shoes out there. They definitely run a half-size too big, though. The only thing that concerns me is lateral
on the court. I've rolled my ankles in these numerous times and the second time I played in them this time I almost did
thing. I wear ankle braces with them so they're perfect now, but just saying. I keep trying to find something better than
but don't know if I ever will. I play 2-4 times a week for hours. 4.0 level
From: Scott. 3/12
Comments: For me, these shoes don't run a half size large. Based on what TW said, I ordered my
normal size (9.5) and a pair of 9.0 in case TW was right about the sizing. Recently, I
had a foot injury and started wearing custom orthotics so I actually need a 10 to give me
a little extra room in the toe box. My foot is normal width with a narrow heel and high
arch. My previous Asics Resolution 3's (size 9.5) if anything were slightly large. From what I
could tell, they fit very true to size (length) and I would say they are a medium width with
a heel that is slightly narrow. In closing order your usual size, unless you like a little
From: Jerry, 3/12
Comments: This a first time purchase for me with the resolution 4 and after quite a few hours of drills
workouts, I think the shoes are very good. Have been using the kswiss bigshot which I really like and have been using
for a long
time, but wanted to try something new. The Res 4 fits very well throughout and very secure. The only slight difference
between the 2 shoes is the heel feels slightly deeper and more secure in the bigshot but it probably will settle in after a
times on court. I have a medium foot with medium to low arch and find the shoes fits well. Don't use any nike or adidas
find it hard to get the fit and comfort. Typically play 4x a week on hardcourts and go thru shoes in 3+/- mo's. Hope to
get a little
more out these. Did not find any difference in sizing as stated in description. Went with my usual size.
From: CD, 3/12
Comments: BUYER BEWARE - Don't buy 1/2 size smaller. I have now been through more than 10 pairs of
back to the 2s. Always bought a 13, always loved a 13. I did what TW said and ordered a 12.5 and man do I regret it. I
maybe it was a bad foot day for me when I first put them on at the club, but after 3 sets, I was almost limping. Guess I
with them now given there is some wear. Love the shoe! Just want my 13 back.
From: Andy, 3/12
Comments: I have two pairs, both returned by Asics under durability
guarantee as replacements for the previous GR3s. The GR4's are the
tiniest bit longer, but certainly not enough to warrant going down a
size. I went thru 2 pairs of the GR3's and the tongue was always
shifting over to the side, not so in the new ones. Great shoe.
From: JV, 3/12
Comments: Love the GR4's! Have worn Asics exclusively for the last 2 years and these are amazing. For
recommend, don't get them 1/2 size smaller - especially if you were orthotics of any kind.
From: Kim, 2/12
Comments: Having been a convert to Asics tennis shoes since the GR 2's, I've been very impressed with
shoes, and have converted many of my friends. I am currently wearing the GR3's, but had the opportunity to try on the
WOW! I was very impressed. On the spec, it does not look like anything has changed, but whatever they did, I noticed
immediate increase in comfort over the GR3's and GR2's. I did try it a 1/2 size smaller and I did enjoy that fit better
regular size, so yes, buy them a 1/2 size smaller. Definitely the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn.
From: Dru, 2/12
Comments: Finally back to being a great shoe!!!! This makes about 12 pair of the various Gel Resolution
had over the years since GR1. I took over a year away from them after finding the GR3 to be a very average shoe (really
an unworthy successor to a really terrific lineage. In the interim, I went to T22s and more recently the New Balance
1187 , with the
latter also being a top notch shoe and closest to the early GR versions. This new GR4 seems to be back to the high
with the earlier versions which were so impressive, despite durability issues. Immediate comfort, stability, cushioning
support. Re sizing - I ordered my regular size and they fit fine. Don't know why TW suggests ordering a size down.
From: Steve, 2/12
Comments: I was concerned about this shoe being 1/2 size bigger as noted but it was not the case for
me (I bought
my regular size and fits very comfortably). I love this shoe, not only the classic color of navy blue and white but also
right out of the box. I have used and loved the GR 3 and expect the same quality and durability of the GR 4. A great
especially for three to four hours a day of tennis. Serious players would appreciate the GR4.
From: Humberto, 2/12
Comments: My last 2 pairs of shoes were the Asics Gel Resolution 2 and the Nike Lunar Vapor 8's. I
prefer a shoe
that is comfortable, light weight, and also durable. I have found that this shoe has really provided me with those things
desire. Out of all of those things, I was really impressed with how comfortable these shoes are. These are the most
pair of tennis shoes I have ever bought and I have went through several years worth of shoes. Cosmetically, I was a bit
about the green but it looks much better in person. I would definitely recommend this shoe to anyone. Also,
everybody at the
courts have been complimenting my shoes. It's a great shoe for someone wanting a light-weight shoe that provides
and incredible comfort.
From: Ryan, 2/12
Comments: Fit is snug which is a good thing. And Asics continues to improve this shoe for the most
part. I wasn't
wild about the black/green (a little too loud for me). And these weight more than the GR2's, and sit up a bit too high
(coming from a Nike Vapor VI).
From: Anon, 2/12
Comments: Just received the shoes this AM and played 2 sets. Unbelievable comfort right out of the
box. I have
owned the Res 2's and Res 3's and the 4's are probably best yet. Comfort appears to be same as GR3's, but front shoe
slightly shorter for a snugger, better cupping fit. Sizing is almost 1/2 size smaller according to recommendation.
cosmetic changes and all appear to improve quality. These shoes are addicting and I have turned my two nationally
twins (formerly Prince aficionados)on to Res 2&3's and they are believers. I have never worn black shoes, but love the
black/green combos. Only thing you need to concern yourself with 1st couple times wearing is that you may actually
slip out of
shoe on the court on hard cuts until break-in works the natural foot cupping. Buy with confidence.
From: Todd, 2/12
Comments: Love the color scheme. I currently own GR3's, adizeros, cb3.3, zoom breathe 2k11, and the
the most comfortable (gr3 are a close second). A great shoe!!!
From: Jon, 2/12
Comments: Received my new GR4 earlier this week. I wore them to work twice to break them in. I have
them to court yet, but I know they will perform well. Just like all previous GR models these are very very comfortable
out of the
box. This new model is definitely an improvement over GR3. The cosmetics are great and the problem with the
extended toe box
is resolved as well. Since discovering Asics shoes 3 years ago, I have not worn any other brand of shoes to the court or

Comments: These are a fine, but almost completely cosmetic update to the excellent Resolution 3s. I do
understand the sizing guideline, as they fit exactly the same as the R3s.
