    For my money the best tennis shoes ever made........so are these just gone forever?

    Does anyone know of any stores anywhere that have still have some old stock left?

    I'm talking about the red/white/blue ones and the black/gold ones that everyone was wearing in 2008...

    Anybody have any idea if or where a few can be found?

    thanks,

    hiya johnathan i have the gel Resolution 3 and had all of the models before
    no1 are without doubt the BEST!!! 3 are better then 2 but only just still no way comparable to number 1's but i have a another pair of asics and there the new gel game and they are so similar to the 1's i much prefer them over the 3's and they are cheaper too, i am going to be stocking up on them too, and better still check out the colour scheme...

    luke...

    How do you compare the fit between the Gel Game and the Gel Res 3? Comparable? Thanks

    id say the gel game is slightly higher fit, i feel physically taller in them they are softer better around the ankle again this being due to the soft material used rather then the plastic on the GR3's, the real minor downside is they make my feet sweat alittle but to be honest its not that much, they fit width wise similar but around the toe area a little tighter which feels alot better, i really am not lying when i say this but for the price and quality they are one top tennis shoe!

    my ratings

    gel game 3

    fit 10/10
    break in time 10/10
    breathability 7/10
    comfort 10/10
    colour/design 10/10
    OVERALL 47/50

    Gel resulution 3

    fit 7/10
    break in time 7/10
    breathability 8/10
    comfort 7/10
    colour/design 8/10
    OVERALL 37/50

    Honestly you have to try the gel game 3’s they are so much better then you would think.

    May we ask where you got these? Don't see them on this site or other sites (sorry, TW).

    Thanks. They do look sharp.

    Not available yet in the US... just in the UK. Just like the yellow GR3s and the new GR3 Clay Courts. I'm really curious why ASICs limits distribution of a shoe geographically. Can't figure it out for the life of me.
