Gel Resolution 5s - Anyone Tried Them?
 
Just wondering if anyone has had a chance to try these yet? If so, what do you think? How are they different from the 4s? Thanks.

They are more GR 3-ish in fit and feel.

Thanks. I didn't wear the 3s. How were the 3s different from the 4s?

Better. Not as long and "pointy" toe, so they don't curl up like elf slippers. Better fit overall, IMO.

Hahaha! That is a perfect description of the 4's.

Wow! My GR4's aren't pointy looking and sure don't curl up like elf slippers.

What did you guys do, order three sizes too big?:)

I actually love the way mine look and definitely love how they play in.

I did follow Tennis Warehouse's advice and ordered a half size smaller than I usually wear and everything's great.

I'm not sure if I should order another pair of the fours or try the fives.

I see the fives must fit true to size as TW isn't advising to order a half size smaller than normal.

I'll probably stay with the fours as they remind me of the original GR1's in how comfortable they are and they actually seem a lot more stable than the 1's.

Elf slippers? Too funny............

currently i have the gel res 4's and was debating whether to order the 5's or try out the solution speed. i ended up getting the solution speeds, maybe a faster feeling shoe will suit me better. i will be checking to see how the 5's play to see if i made a mistake

What's wrong with looking like an elf?

nothing, if you are Will Ferrell.

I ordered a half size down and never had this elf condition. I was surprised the rubber upper that connects the mesh to the toe held up. I'm a slight tie-dragger, so I was worried I'd get a hole there. I'm about to send in my 4's. Maybe if I ask nice enough they'll send me some 5's.

netguy 01-10-2013 07:07 PM

I can relate to the elf condition and went half size down...however, GR4 are great shoes, I will buy them again :)

Do the Gel Res 5's have a truer fit? With the 4s you had to order a half size lower.

I wear a size 11 in every shoe, including my GR4s. When I tried on a 10.5 it was too small. I tried on the GR5 yesterday at the big store near Baltimore, and the size 11 fit just fine. I thought they looked cheaper than the GR4, but felt very similar. I'll probably buy the GR4s while they're still available.

The ship date is pushed back it Feb 1 for the GR5s. I found an old pair of GR2s I apparently had in the back of a closet, and they are in great shape. I will impatiently wait for the new hotness.

zapvor 01-20-2013 10:49 PM

hmm.......tempted to get 4s.........

I ripped the upper stitching on my GR4s first wear when dragging my right. It's not too bad, but hoping will hold up for the next 30 hours or so to allow me to get through the outsole.

Other than that, love these shoes. Comfy, perfect grip and breathable among other good points.

Alexc2505 03-03-2013 04:29 PM

Just got the fives and played today straight out of the box and they were great , comfy, good ventilation and great grip. Just wish my tennis matched the quality of the shoes :)

I have worn 2 versions of Asic Resolution but can't recall if they are 4 or 5. I had a black with some yellow and my current shoe is the mostly yellow with some black trim that I bought last year. These Asics were the best shoe I have worn in awhile. I have ordered 2 different pairs, a 4 and 5 as I can't make up mind on prefered color, my question is there diference in the 4 and the 5?

JoeR 03-06-2013 02:40 PM

I tried the GR5s in "my" size (11)... and they were too narrow in the toe box for me.

The GR4s were much roomier in the toes....

But. Both GR4s and GR5s were a nice, neutral shoe with my heels even with the balls of my feet. And cushy.
