You may be the next Steffi Graf or Venus Williams, or you may be the most serious social player on the court, but a good tennis shoe is essential to avoid twisted ankles or a twisted serve. The Asics Gel resolution fits in the stability line.
It is designed to maximize stability during lateral movements but is still comfortable. It comes with FlexionFit upper material and has a toe protector.
The shoes have a gel cushioning system that lessens the shock on impact and have a padded tongue and collar for additional comfort. They also feature the AHAR+ non-marking outsole for a more durable shoe that won’t leave scuff marks on the clay court.

These shoes are designed for tennis specifically, they have a lower flatter sole to support your feet during all the lateral and start stop movements on the court. The shoes are very comfortable even if you are a very eager player that puts a lot of strain on your feet on the court.
They don’t need a long time to be broken in. The key element in terms of the positives is their comfort and stability (thank the gel system for all that comfort).
These shoes are stable on the court but are also very soft and comfortable when you go hard after a difficult return shot. The Asics Gel-resolution 6 are available in a standard white color (for the traditionalists) but are also available in seven other color combination options to suit your unique style and preference.
They do have a narrow design and the fit is tight with a shallow toe box. Depending on your feet this could either be a pro or a con. They do not have much arch support and will not fit well if you have a high instep.
These shoes are a little heavier than most other tennis shoes, but provide good stability and comfort. They have additional support for lateral movements on the court which makes the shoe stiffer and a little narrower than most other tennis shoes.
It is one of the most comfortable choices in tennis shoes and is a good upgrade of Asics’ previous model. This popular tennis shoe has been upgraded with a new range of color options and are durable and more robust than lighter shoes.
Stability and comfort are the key elements of the Asics women’s Gel-Resolution tennis shoes and will be a good choice if your feet tend to move around and feel painful after a few hours of good tennis. Good lateral stability and a heavier comfortable shoe will suit you well.
On the other hand, if you have a high instep, need some additional arch support or need some space around your toes, this shoe might be too tight. You will need to be sure of the size and fit of these shoes, and may need to consider a slightly larger size than usual.
These shoes will work for the lady on the court that needs stability and comfort while chasing her next six love victory.
