    I like them. Conservative but not boring. Classy looking in a restrained way, though I'd like to see a bit more gold in the colorway.

    There's also a women's version of this which has a identical colorway as the men's. Speaking to a retailer friend of mine though, he's not going to stock them because doesn't think that colorway is going to sell that well to women.

    Absolutely LOVE what Asics are doing at the moment with the range of GR4 colorways being offered. I just wish all the colorways were available equally in US and Europe.

    I know. I have made it my personal goal to get each one of the colorways released, but international shipping is a beast.

    2 hr match, battle of atrition, victorious in the end. can you call a let on yourself because you're own shoes were a distraction? Tip #1- either DON'T wear the resolution socks by themselves (double sock them) or wear thorlos.

    ^ That's got me thinking...

    The GR4s would looks great in predominately orange with white Asics stripes and blue sole trimmings. Orange and blue (with minor white accenting) is a good combination.

    I have to say TW comments about size are not true for me (the 1/2 size large thing). An 11 fit me in the GR3 and I need an 11.5 in the GR4. The GR 4 toe box is narrower and more pointy. The GR3 was a great fitting shoe, they should have left the fit alone......

    Follow up........I ordered an 11 and 11.5, and I am sending both back. The GR 4 just do not fit my feet. The GR 3 was a perfect fit for me in a size 11, but I cannot wear the GR 4.

    I know what you mean, but I found that once the shoe was worn several times, and the foot sinks into the cushioning, the tightness I was feeling was alleviated. This was also the case with the GR2's. I have a fairly wide foot near the toes, and the half size smaller fits wonderfully. Coming from the 2's, the 3 was a lot bigger in the forefront, and I actually prefer the snugger feel.

    The designer musta been tripping to come up with those. Hope he trips more because I wear boring shoe everywhere but on the courts. So those would feed my crazy side. Good Lord those are loud shoes!

    The half size down or keep the same size is so subjective that you might as well order both pairs from TW and just send back the one that doesn't fit.

    The black and red in the pics look great!

    The Vapors have lower profile air bags, Zoom air conbined with shallower tread depths to give more "feel" of the court, so prob explains why they don't last very long or have 6mth guarantee on them.

    I think they are nice. Though this looks like running shoes.

    Thanks for the heads up, just looked these socks up. $15 a pair and two pairs needed to be comfy... that's a shockingly bad case of style over substance. Perhaps they're more suited for running.

    Arthuro- the above grey/orange look good I agree.

    Those grey/orange ones look pretty cool. I've never been that thrilled with the women's colorways so I've been loading up on the smaller men's sizes.

    Do the GR4s warrant the higher prices? I started from GR1 and they've been amazing. Have a pair left of GR2 and GR3 but I wonder if it's worth it with the increased prices for GR4 these days.

    I am biased. I have all the Gr2 and 3 colorways--all new, as wells as the GR4. I think they are worth it.

    If the orange were a little brighter, I'd be all over these.

    Best colorways so far are all in Europe, the white/red and the white/black/gold.

    I was thinking the same thing but you beat me to the post with the Elite socks. You could also go with the Elite white with orange stripes one in case you can't get the one posted in your picture.

    ^ That guy would wear the hell out of those shoes.


    As would I.

    Except, I've kinda fallen in love with the grey and orange.
