Likes: Like an accomplished all-court player, the Gel-Resolution 3 scored high marks in every phase of the game. Among its assets are comfort, stability, breathability, gripping traction, break-in time and a relatively light weight. Good looks, too: It is a striking shoe that is almost aesthetically avant-garde, coming in both aggressive and more traditional color palettes. (This is also evident in the women’s version.) The thermo polyurethane outsole, which comes with a durability guarantee, provides strength.
Dislikes: There are no major dislikes, however this shoe needs to be built a little lower to the ground. It would have made it an all-time great.
Bottom Line: More than suitable for both the serious and recreational player, this is best overall shoe we’ve reviewed this year. The Gel-Resolution 3 performs capably on all surfaces and is one of the most comfortable shoes we tested. This well-engineered shoe is designed for tennis, but can be used as a cross-training shoe as well. Across all skill levels, it delivers satisfaction.
Engineered with elite players in mind. The flagship of ASICS tennis line just got better. This third version of the Gel-Resolution features the Flexion Fit™ Upper which provides form-fitting comfort and support. Also: Solyte® midsoles, Impact Guidance Sys
