    Is the size in Asics Gel Resolution 3 and resolution 4 exactly the same? I´ve read from somewhere, that there is a difference, but is it so?

    I haven´t tried the Reso 4 and now I´m wondering can I order those only with the great experience on Reso 3´s.

    I found that, for me, a size 11 G3 fit perfect, but a size 11 G4 feels too small, narrow. I would like to be able to wear the G4 but can't seem to get the right fit. The G4's do have a longer more pointy toe, so 11.5 for me to get enough width feels like I would trip on the long pointy toes.

    they are same size, but different toe bed etc

    Yes, the toe is longer in asics 4 than it was in 3's, that in itself warrents a .5 size down. Here's why:

    I am wearing the asics gel 4's now and I have the my current size, 8 (also same size I wore in 3's) and at first, they felt fine. The toe bed is more comfy and the top/sides of the shoe has been relaxed and stretchy, much more comfy. However, wearing it for a few months now, and having the toe bed relax, I'm finding that it's too long, I have to make sure my heel is at the back of the shoe, lace up really tight (not to strangle the top of my foot) for it to feel secure. I tried on a pair of 7.5's asics 4's out of the box with double socks, and they fit like a glove, not overly tight. So once that stretches out, it'll be perfect.

    Go with the .5 size below your normal size.

    Ok, I revisited these one more time. I tried some more of the GR4's, and this pair of size 11 fit perfect, definitely different from the other size 11's I tried. 11.5 is definitely too long. The sizing variances of the same size of the same shoes is crazy. So overall, I agree the same size fits in GR4 as the GR3 for me. Both fit me in size 11.

    I feel that GR4's width is true to size for me a maybe a lil' narrow for most. The length is definitely a bit too long though...

    I would agree with this ^^^. I'm fine with the G4 sizing...same as Vapor 9 and 2k12, or at least not a big difference that I can notice.

    so a US8 for a Vapor 9 or CB 2.3 would be the same as a US8 for a GR4?

    i have a somewhat related question..
    i'm usually a 42 size (8.5 US).
    so-
    i currently wear a 8.5 size Barricades, which fit pretty nicely, except maybe a little bit short at the toe.
    that's why i thought that if i'll buy the GR4 at 8.5 it will be perfect.
    so just to be sure I've done this "find shoe size" on TW shoe help,
    and i found my size to be 9.5 !!
    don't know whether or not it's a trusty test, but they say to wear your socks while testing, so..

    anyway, i'm not sure which Asics size to buy, with the biggest problem of having to ship them to Israel, while they don't even have them here for me to try on :(

    Not sure about the CB 2.3 (?) but IMO, I would not order a G4 in a size different from what fits me in a V9. They are pretty close.
