    Has anyone heard anything about a replacement to the 2's? They are great shoes but my feet didn't really like them.

    The Gel Res 1's were more comfortable due to the material used on the top of the shoe. The new exo-skeleton used is a harder plastic which is not as forgiving. The older material was thinner and behaved more like a rubber-coated fabric with slits in it to help vent the shoe.

    As for performance, the GR2 does not perform any better than the GR1. There is zero improvement in stability or durability. I do find that after a 2-4 hour break-in period the GR2's comfort is on par with the GR1.

    yeah the 1s were more comfortable, and styling was better, I loved the blue and white, but didnt care for the Gay teal on the 2's and super plasticy upper.


    I already had to stretch out the pinky toes area on the 1's looked almost impossible on the 2's
    I hope they add some red accents to that blue 3

    All, So I figured out what was killing my feet with the Res 2's. Oh, and by the way, my left big toe nail is almost grown back, but the right looks like permanent damage.

    Anyway, I was pretty Pi$$ed one day and was with going to shred the shoes and feed them to the local coyotes or figure out what was making my foot hurt. I figured out that the big external block of plastic in the inside that says "PGuard" was much stiffer. So I took a knife and cut several slits into it at random angles. Amazingly, my foot no longer aches and I can actually wear the shoe and walk the next day.

    And the above posts about the hard plastic over the toes, you guys are right on. This is the 2nd time this drag on plastic crap has ruined my toes.

    Sorry, had to remove the image. Please erase from your memory.

    Figjam,
    The answer to your question is yes, but not a final version (a proto).

    Chris, TW

    Nice looking shoe....If these had the same uppers as the 2's, I sure hope you provided some feedback stating there is no performance improvement and it degrades comfort relative to the original GR1.

    you know what would be awsome??? if they made the whole shoe the color of the green accent on the current white ones!!!! tell them that!!!


    and tell them to give my pinky toe more ROOM!!! (I dont have a wide foot!)

    and give the blue ones some red and white accents:)

    I turned my Asic Gel Resolution 2 into a Walking shoe. It wasnt' very comfortable to play tennis in so what i did was go and buy a Dr. Sholl's Messaging Gel Insoles and put it in and it feels like one of the best walking shoe i have ever worn.......lol

    No love for the AGR2's?!?! They're the best tennis shoe I've ever worn, and I went through 2 pairs of the 1st model as well. The hard plastic shell takes a while to break in, but I feel like it provides more stability and support since it has way less give than the soft material used in the AGR1's.

    Where's the picture?? Can anyone link me to it?

    Chris TW, do you know when a potential release date is? I want to know whether I should buy another pair of 2's or wait for the 3's :) Thanks

    Someone I know has already tried them on because a salesmen came to my tennis club with the whole range, he said they were more comfortable than the gel resoulution 2s.

    correct, those are not the gr3s. the gr3s have been posted previously (and were removed) and they looked distinctly different than the gr2s.

    In this review of TW Chris is wearing the resolution 3, although I ask him and he said those are some kinda prototype and he is not sure if they will come in those exact colors.

    Thanks!! Great find!

    That shoe seems to be a good upgrade to the AGR2. Seems to be a little better breath-ability in the upper part of the shoe.
