    I got the chance to try on a pair last Saturday. They are very comfortable, look great and feel low to the ground. The only thing I didn't like was the cut around the ankle. It felt like it did not offer any ankle support.

    Guys, how do the sizes on the Resolutions run? I find that the running shoes tend to be a bit smaller (about half a size) than advertised.

    Asics...

    Gel Resolution's rule! I've been a long-time Adidas fan, but wanted to try something different. And wow, these Asics really surprised me. I don't feel that they run a full 1/2 size smaller. More like a 1/4. ;) BTW, H***bird Sports advertises a 6-month warranty, but TW doesn't?!

    They are very manuverable. Still trying to figure out how this shoe is almost as light as the Feather but has alot more heel support. Not suited for clay, outsole is kinda sticky even on hard courts. Got mine from H about a month ago and have been buying blue clothes to match since....Blue Roddick Lacoste shorts are my fav!!!

    I got mine last week and I love them. As far as sizing goes I don't think that they run as small as the Asics running shoes, in fact I would say they run pretty true to size. I'm coming off a pair of Lotto Raptor IIs and these are just as good and they may even be a little lighter and a bit more stable than the Raptors.

    My true size is 10 US and to most brands (like Adidas) they fit me well, but Asics. I tried last year Asics shoes size 10 and was getting troubles with my feet, because they were just a little (a few mm) too short. So I decided to buy size 10.5, and with that I have no toes problems anymore.:p
    Recently I found the link below. Maybe this table can be helpful:

    Mike-

    I don' think they're as narrow as Nike's. You're not wearing a super thick sock like a Thorlo with them are you??

    I love this shoe!!! Still amazed at how ligh t is.

    Ordered a pair of these since the Gel Icon has been dicontinued and they share a lot of the same Asics features that made the Icons great for overpronation.

    I really don't like the styling, but the Icons gave me six months of foot pain-free tennis so I'll suck it up and wear blue shoes for the next six months.

    I wore size 12 Adidas for years (running, tennis, x-training) and have moved to size 12 Asics for everything with no problems.

    How is the width?

    I have a wide forefoot and low arch. How do you all feel these shoes would accomodate me? Would you say that they are as wide, not as wide, or wider then Barricade IV's????

    I also used the Barricade IV last year and I can say that the Resolution are as wide as the BIV so I think they 'll fit you well. But be sure you 'll take a 1/2 size larger. (I took size 10 for the BIV and size 10,5 for Asics).

    I agree that they're not nearly as narrow as Nike's. You know, I wish Nike would offered a "wide" option like they do in a few of their golf shoes. Moreover, if New Balance would just design better looking shoes they wouldn't be able to keep them on the shelves IMO! Their new CT1200 makes me want to throw up! :lol:

    Wore them on court for the first time last night. They're a lot lighter than the Gel Icons I had before, and they had better traction on the Har-Tru than the Icons (which were slippery even when new).

    Damn they're ugly, but they're a much better shoe than the Icon. Very happy.
