Comments: These Asics do not work for me. I'm a 5'11" 210lbs all-court player that plays primarily singles. These
shoes are too soft for me and thus don't provide enough stability for my feet and ankles. I'm coming from the Barricade 6 and
Yonex 307, neither of which gave me any ankle issues. These shoes, though true to size and comfortable, are just too soft. I don't
turn my ankle when I play with these shoes. I just slowly find my left ankle swelling as I play. Everybody has their own issues. My
conclusions is that this shoe is just too lightly constructed to provide me the support I require. I'm an ex basketball player and
might be considered a power player. Also, I find these shoes mark up the courts I play on.
Comments: The Asics Resolution 5 were a love letter to my feet! I absolutely love them and can't stop raving about
the optimal blend of esthetics, comfort, stability and fast feel. Coming from the Barricade 7, which were really stable, almost to
the point where you needed so mush energy to move them around a court, I needed to sacrifice some stability for a faster feel. As
the TW description says, the arch support is slightly lower than medium so if you have flat feet, low arches or wide feet you will
love these shoes. Out of the box they felt heavenly and no break-in was required. Plus, the bright yellow is a nice color which fits
perfectly with my yellow Nike Rafa power court, yellow Volkl Cyclone strings, and yellow headband!
Comments: These are by far the best tennis shoes I have ever owned. I am a high school player who will be playing
D2 college level next year and these shoes hold up! Regarding comfort, this is the ideal shoe. My arches are lower than most and I
have a wide fore-foot. I have tried everything from the Barricades to the Courtballistecs to the Propulses and all of them either
caused me pain in my arches, loss of toe nails, or lack of durability. The Gel Res 5s have great cushion, a wider toe box, and lower
support which feels great. I have put about 50 hours on them in just a little over a month and I have worn them down to the insole
along the left toe and they still have some bounce! I am a pretty heavy toe dragger and the fact that they have lasted this long
without being completely dead is amazing because that means I can really milk the durability guarantee. So in short, as long as
Asics doesn't make any major changes to the shoe, this will be my shoe for life.
Comments: I have a high arch and medium width forefoot and wear a size 12. These are the perfect fit for me as I
find Nikes to be too narrow.
Comments: Extremely comfortable and great support. I normally use Babolats and Yonex but I am very happy about
this shoes. No break-in required. Only problem is the black marks it leaves all over the court. That's an issue if your tennis
director cares about it.
Comments: This shoe is very comfortable and has great traction and support. It would be my favorite shoe except
for the black marks it leaves all over the court! Avid toe draggers beware!
Comments: Good arch support, fits true to size, very comfortable shoe even during 4-5 hours of play. No break-in
required. Love them!
Comments: These shoes were great during the first couple of weeks, but as they started to break in, they became
loose fitting. I really put them to the test. I played about 6 USTA 4.5 matches with them, and by the end, my feet were sliding all
over the place inside the shoe. I may need to wear 2 or 3 pairs of socks to make them fit now, but I think ultimately I need to
move on to another shoe.
Comments: I have used the previous version and now am trying these. The previous version was great, I never
thought it was a size longer. It did open up with time and towards the end of its life the shoe did feel bigger. They also felt more
like running shoes rather than tennis shoes not providing as much sideward stability. These shoes are an enhancement. They fit
tight, are comfy, seem to provide great stability and look awesome. 5 stars and highly recommended. The other shoe I would
recommend is the Babolat Propulse 4. I have wide feet and wear a size 13, I play everyday and weigh 200 pounds.
Comments: I need to amend my review below. I loved the Gel Resolution 4 but didn't like the Gel Resolution 5 in
the same size. However, I tried a half-size smaller and it's much better. In my opinion, the GR5 runs a bit bigger than the GR4.
Comments: First time Asics user and I love them! They are quite comfortable, but what I like is that they are quite
stable as well. I feel very fast on the court. The colors look awesome as well!
Comments: I've owned 3 pairs of the Gel Resolution 3s and decided to give the new GR5 a try. I ordered them in the
fluorescent yellow color - great shoe! I love the extra room in the toe area! I always found the GR3's were a little tight there, but
these new ones fit me like a glove! The new GR5's also seem to be wearing at a slower rate compared to the GR3's. Very happy
with this purchase!
Comments: I agree with the other reviews that this shoe does not lock down to fit as snug as the GR4. I really loved
the GR4 but I'm disappointed in the GR5. The color is awesome. I'll be playing in Nike Vapors this year.
Comments: I was a huge fan of the Asics Gel Resolution 3. It provided a very snug fit, was light and also provided
good support. I thought it was the perfect tennis shoe. I did not buy the Gel Resolution 4 when they came out. I read that they
ran a half size larger, but I don't really know though. Didn't need them as my Gel Resolution 3s were still functional. Finally my
Gel Resolution 3 shoes were wearing out a bit (the uppers) and I needed a new shoe. I waited for the Gel Resolution 5 to come out
and bought the black and blue version as soon as they came out. When I tried them on, to my surprise, the fit was different. They
are roomy in the toe box, and not snug. I have a slim foot and wear a size 7 shoe (which is the smallest size they come in
apparently). Anyways, I do not like the fit. They are too roomy and almost feel too light (like they are not supportive enough).
The roomy toe box bugs me, as it feels like my foot moves side to side in the front of the shoe a little. The medial aspect of my
knee was bothering me after the second time I used them. The fourth time I used them (today) the medial aspect of my knee
again hurt. I don't know why, but it does not feel like a great shoe based on the lack of a snug fit. I am going to have to look for
a different shoe. Miss the Gel Resolution 3, as that was the perfect tennis shoe for me.
Comments: Got my GR5s today and they look great! The black and blue pair look stunning in person. I'm a first
Asics user previously using Court Ballistics. This shoe feels great and much lighter than the Ballistecs. I really hope they last as
Comments: I played 4 sets in them tonight, and they feel cozy and quick! Thank you Asics!
Comments: The biggest and most noticeable difference between these and previous versions of the Gel Resolutions
a wider toe box. As my foot is a bit on the narrow side, I definitely prefer the fit of the previous version.
