Likes: Asics’ latest Gel-Resolution model, which earned a rare 10.0 rating among wear-testers, was so well received that some dubbed it their sole-mate. The addition of a new flexion fit upper offers more comfort and support, the thermo polyurethane outsole provides strength and the Gel cushioning system in the front and rear absorbs shock from sudden starts, stops and changes of direction on court. Little break-in time is required and the shoe’s lighter weight adds to its comfort. It performs capably on all surfaces.
Dislikes: Like the men’s version, we would have preferred a lower-to-the-ground build.
Bottom Line: Rather than resting on the shoe’s past success, Asics has ambitiously tried to improve the Gel-Resolution 3 and has succeeded. We recommend it to all players. Again, like its men’s counterpart, it is the best shoe we tested this year.
Engineered with elite players in mind. The flagship of ASICS tennis line just got better. The third version of the Gel-Resolution features the Flexion Fit™ Upper which provides form-fitting comfort and support. Also: Solyte® midsoles, Impact Guidance Syst
