Comments: I ordered this on Friday and it arrived before Saturday noon time. My wife just bought Gel Resolution 5,
and this one is an older model but still fits her foot perfectly.
From: Keisuke, 4/13
Comments: I bought a pair of Gel Resolution 4s on sale. I have really wide and big feet and wear a size 10. I was
able to wear a 9.5 and from the first day I put them on there was no break in from either me or them. I play about 5-6 days a
week and some days I play over 4 hours. They are so comfortable that I can play all day. This last weekend I played 7 hours in
them with no issues on my feet or joints. I am about to switch to a new pair as they are showing some wear on the toes. I think
they are great but make sure you order them smaller than what you usually wear as they are large.
From: Amiee, 3/13
Comments: I've worn the 2,3, and now 4 versions of these shoes. I usually wear a 9 but had to go down to a 8.5 in
these. The shoes are very comfortable so far with no break in. However, I noticed that the laces run short. I have a narrow foot so
the width shouldn't be affecting the laces at all. Not really a problem, but just something I noticed with this version. I also drag my
toe slightly and haven't noticed any wear there.
From: Anon, 3/13
Comments: I agree with several of the reviewers, these shoes are very comfortable in the beginning but interior
cushioning broke down quickly. The bottom tread also wore down fast. I am not known to be hard on my shoes and am
disappointed and looking for another shoe. I'm a 3.5 singles and doubles player.
From: Mary, 3/13
Comments: These shoes have been terrible for me. I suffered problems with my Achilles tendons on both sides for
the first time in my life, due to the too-stiff sole (my Orthopod and Physical Therapist concur). It's not worth it! Find something
with a more flexible sole!
From: Anon, 1/13
Comments: Received the Resolution 4 shoes yesterday but I am returning them as they are too big by at least a 1/2
size. I felt my heels slipped when I tried them on, something that others have commented on. I am hoping a smaller shoe might
From: Anna, 1/13
Comments: Love these shoes! They are so comfortable with no break-in period. I will agree with other reviewers
that they run a little long but I purchased my usual size and they feel just right. I've had these for 6 months and play 4-5 times a
week (3.5-4.0). The soles are still in great shape even with a lot of singles! I get a lot of compliments the style, too. I plan on
getting another pair soon -- waiting until they come out with some more fun colors.
From: Kay, 11/12
Comments: These shoes are quite comfortable out of the box, and the color (grey/orange) is quite outstanding, but
they do run long (no kidding), and I'm not too impressed with the heel fit. I'm not sure about the quality, since I just received
them, but I will update if they fail the 6-month durability test. About the size, they are between a half and a whole size larger
than normal. I'm a size 5.5, however, in the Asics RUNNING shoes, I size up to a 6. I ordered both the size 5 and 5.5, because
there was only one left on one of the sizes, and I'm returning the 5.5s, and not sure if I'm keeping the 5's either, since they are
still a bit large. The 5s fits like my running 6s. I may be happier with a 4.5, which they don't make. There is a lot of room at the
toe box in the 5s. About the heel, after tightening the laces at my ankles, there is less heel slippage. However, the heel area feels
like it needs to be deeper set, so the shoes don't feel like they'll slip off. In general, there are a nice color (the orange is a very
bright day-glow hunting jacket/construction vest orange), comfortable, but long and somewhat shallow-feeling.
From: Sue, 9/12
Comments: Despite the reviews that the toe box is wider in this newer
model, it was not enough for me, and I just wear a size 6 medium shoe.
I had to return them. But, the info/help center on Tennis Warehouse.com
has been extremely helpful in suggesting other brands/models to try to
find the perfect fit for me. So I'm continuing on my search.
From: Karen, 8/12
Comments: I have tried New Balance and Prince prior to getting my pair of Asics Gel Resolution 4, and what an
amazing difference. The shoe is not stiff, and the first time I wore them they felt like they were already broken in. I also love the
6-month durability warranty. The reason I decided to purchase the Asics brand is because both my family practice doctor and
podiatrist recommended the brand! Nice job Asics!
From: Marsha, 8/12
Comments: I've worn Asics for the interior foot support for about 4 years now. However, something has changed
with this shoe. The interior cushioning wears down very quickly causing soreness in the balls of my feet, which was not the case
before. True there is no break-in period, but they wear out too fast. I'm disappointed.
From: Andrea, 8/12
Comments: I am a junior tennis player and this is my first time wearing Asics. These shoes
were very comfortable but did not last that long. I bought them in May and I needed a new
pair instantly. Even though I do play 6 days a week and junior tournaments, these shoes
should last longer than two months. I was not impressed by their durability but they were
From: Z.M.B., 7/12
Comments: Finally....a running shoe meets tennis shoe and creates a lovely duo. I've been waiting and at
last Asics has served up THE perfect tennis shoe. Tons of support and super lightweight. I
normally wear an 8.5 Asics running sneaker. I had to go to size 8 with
this shoe as I didn't want any slippage and believe it or not, sneakers do really stretch out.
The neon orange laces have gotten more than their share of comments. So happy to say
these are keepers.
From: Meredith, 7/12
Comments: I bought these shoes and within the first few months rolled my ankle and am out for the season. Super
comfortable but unstable in the heel area.
From: Anon, 7/12
Comments: These shoes were so comfortable right out of the box! Felt like slippers.
No break in time required, super comfy, and they seem to be very durable. Bought them and wore
them at district tournament this past weekend. No blisters!
From: Debi, 7/12
Comments: I followed the suggestion by reviewers and ordered a half size smaller. I normally wear an 8 in a street
shoe or any shoe other than a tennis shoe. I ALWAYS wear an 8.5 in Nike's so I ordered an 8 as recommended. They felt very tight
in the toe box and were not comfortable. So I ordered the 8.5 and they fit as they should. I don't have a wide foot, but I do have
high arches so perhaps that's why the toe box was too tight in the 8.
From: Anon, 7/12
Comments: Wow! These are really nice shoes. I had several pairs of the
Asics GR 3's, which were great shoes. I like these GR 4's even better.
The new GR 4's are a lot more comfortable than the GR 3's. These may be
the most comfortable tennis shoes I've ever had. They are very well
cushioned, did not require any break in, and they feel very stable. The
shoes do run long, so I needed 1/2 size smaller than I wore in the GR
3's. Some people reported they did not need a smaller size, but I did.
My only complaint about these shoes is the colors. I don't like the
Navy, and the white are very plain. The gray and orange are OK, but I
don't really like dark shoes. I settled on the gray & orange but am
hoping Asics comes out with a new color.
From: Patty, 7/12
Comments: I absolutely LOVE these shoes and I also get tons of compliments! This is my 3rd pair of Asics tennis
shoes (I had 2 pair of the previous version) and I haven't had any issues. I wish Tennis Warehouse would have realized how
popular these shoes were going to be and ordered more!
From: Marci, 6/12
Comments: I bought both 7 and 6.5 as I wore 7's in the Gel Resolution 3's. TW suggested a 1/2 size
smaller but I was skeptical since my size is much smaller than the men's. It was strange as the outsides are exactly the
same but somehow inside you have more room and I returned the 7's. The GR 4's did not need the break in that I did
with the 3's and have been comfortable without any problems from the first match. I would say my feet are normal
width but I have high arches and narrow at the back of the heel. I think these are a big snugger in the heel than the
GR3's but I do use the back holes to help hold them on.
From: Peggy, 6/12
Comments: These shoes are super comfy and supportive but I found the orange to be bright orange, not
a soft melon color. I will get them in white!
From: LC, 6/12
Comments: Love this shoes only problem is these shoes do not fit the true size, it is very confusing as
some model runs small. I wish Asics would stick with the true size for all the models. This
GEL Resolution4 runs 1/2 size big. I'm lucky, I read reviews before the purchase.
I'm very happy with feel, after first try on indoor courts they felt very comfortable, stable, light, and the
traction was very good. I love the bright colors, I'm having many complements from
friends and club members. Only problem is, heel became little loose, I had to tighten the
lace, I'm 4.0 player, plays indoor and outdoor 4 x week.
From: Jane, 6/12
Comments: I wear Asic's running shoes and thought I would try these for tennis. They are so
uncomfortably. I couldn't wait to get them off my feet, it was to bad because they are so cute with all the colors.
From: Sheri, 6/12
Comments: I love these shoes. No problem with heel or slippage. I play 5 times a week in tournaments
and league. I
have been trying to find the right shoe. I have had a lot of problems with my toe jamming and this shoe does not
cause this. I
usually wear 9 and actually had to order 8!
From: Dawn, 5/12
Comments: I ordered 1/2 a size up but I wear thorlo socks. Comfortable but do need to be tightened
during play. I like the light weight but still adjusting after Nike Breathe II for years. Love the colors.
From: MG, 6/12
Comments: I really like these sneakers. I play singles at 4.0 level and find that my toe doesn't hit
the front of the shoe. The Gel Resolution 3 was a bit too short and toe hit the front
when I had to run up quickly to get to drop shot. They are not too wide for in the front
and the length works well for me. They are a tad roomy in the heel, but if you wear a
thick sock it is ok. I like the added length
From: Mary, 5/12
Comments: I love these shoes! No problem with heels slipping and I have narrow
heels. Yes, there is a little extra space in the toe which it clearly
states in the description that they are extra long. I love the wild
colors. Get this shoe. Lace them properly, and you will love them too.
From: Christy, 5/12
Comments: I love these shoes! This is my first pair of Asics for tennis, and I'm
very impressed. They were comfortable right out of the box, but
definitely "relaxed" quite a bit after the first set. Nice and
supportive with a roomy toe box. Pay careful attention to the sizing
recommendation! If you buy your "normal" size, they will almost
certainly be too big. I wear an 8.5 and ordered an 8. They fit perfectly
with plenty of room between my big toe and the end of the shoe. Glad I
splurged on these.
From: Deb, 5/12
Comments: This is my first pair of Asics and I am not impressed. Heel slippage is a problem. I have
feet and they had to be laced up tight so that I wasn't sloshing around in them. Coming off an
ankle injury, they have aggravated the rehabbed area. However, I LOVE how they look and will
teach in them but cannot wear playing.
From: MBP, 4/12
Comments: I bought these as replacement for earlier model of discontinued men's Asics Gel Resolution 2
and absolutely hate this newer version. Made me feel as if I am learning backwards - felt harder to get on your toes.
much toe space. Felt as if I was wearing a pair of flippers on the court and not tennis shoes! Felt much slower on the
overall. Dreadfully uncomfortable design in comparison to previous/earlier versions.
From: Annelise, 4/12
Comments: I have worn prior versions of this shoe several years running, playing
competitively a couple times a week. I ordered same size in the new version but I'm
disappointed in the heel slippage of the GR 4. I have rolled an ankle and when
stopping/starting I feel like I'm stepping out of my shoe. Will make a snazzy work-out shoe,
but can't wear for tennis anymore.
From: Deborah, 4/12
Comments: Had high hopes for these shoes, but after trying for two weeks to make them
work, they still cause pain in my heel and toes are numb. I ordered my true size and had
problems with my heel slipping. I play 3-4 X a week, 3.5 player. Very disappointed and not
happy with spending so much on a dud.
From: Sunny, 3/12
Comments: I agree with the other comments that these shoes run big. Easily a half size smaller than the
Resolution 3. I pre-ordered these shoes so didn't know about how big they run. I wore them
around to test and they seemed a little longer in the toe but OK. Now that I have worn them
on the court for two weeks, they have loosened up and slip around when I change directions.
I am a 3.5-4.0 mostly doubles player, drill or play 3 times a week. Too late to return, an
From: Michelle, 3/12
Comments: Shoes definitely run big. I love these lightness and easy break in.
I ordered regular size as in past but after having a severe fall and breaking my nose on
the tennis court I believe these shoes do not fit properly . Of course after reading today
about shoes running big I now know that that was a problem with the fall. Of course it's too late to return because I
already. Not sure if I will order
From: Darlene, 2/12
Comments: These are the most comfortable tennis sneakers I've ever owned. Very cushioned,
no break-in period. They feel stable, without being heavy. I have wide feet, and they fit well.
(Don't know if they would work as well for narrow feet.) I'm not so crazy about the navy
color, which is a bit too bright, slightly purplish. I wish they had more options in colors. I may
order the silver to also have a more neutral colored pair.
