Any good shoe like the Asics Gel Solution Speed 3?

Hi all,

I've been looking for some new tennis shoes recently, mostly at some reviews as I can't really try any on. The most important thing for me is durability but I'd like to be able to slide a bit on hard court as well.

Because of this, the speed 3 looked good as they are meant to have both but I can't seem to find them anywhere my size (9 UK).

The new FF aren't meant to be as durable so does anyone know any durable all court shoes that are good for sliding on hard?

I have heard good things about the diadora blue shield and the new super fabric head sprint. I haven't worn either personally, but the TW reviews are always a good place to start.

You could always look at the rereleased uberaonic 2s if your arch/foot can handle the minimalism.

Thanks, for your reply- I'll check them out! I should be getting some ss3 soon as I managed to find a pair my size but will look at the others when they wear out!

Thanks again

I found the GSS3 to be not so durable but a lightweight shoe. The SSFF is a smidge more spacious and suffers from the same issue of a shallow ankle area which means it doesn't feel locked in, at least for my feet. Otherwise it's a nice cushy feel and very lightweight at 381g for a size 11 (without insole). For comparison, the Nike AC3 is 367g, and the Air Zoom Zero is 386g.
So if you like a lightweight but durable shoe, the Nike AC3 is more durable, but a bit harder and also less spacious in the forefoot. However, the fit is a lot more secure and stability is also better.

Protect your toenails and avoid this shoe. It's very comfortable and if I was coaching full time I'd probably wear them more, but that's not the case. There is a lot of toe jam and the outsole is pretty sticky so you can't slide as easily in them either. If you go for a Wilson shoe try the vastly superior Rush pro 3.0 or the Kaos.

i read a lot of mixed reviews concerning the rush pro 3.0 and chaos...a lot of people felt that the lighter 3.0s sacrificed a lot of cushioning and durability in place of quickness. I agree that the toe jamming in the 2.5s was a problem, especially since the shoe is quite sticky but I found that wearing two layers of socks solves that problem. Although some might say the traction of the shoe is quite sticky, I much prefer that than it being too slippery as I’ve found the asics gel challengers to be. I’ve had the shoes for a few weeks now of intensive indoor hard court play and the shoes show little to no wear.
