Hi,

Wondering what your opinions are when comparing these two.

They're both light, and both have the new FlyteFoam in their shoes which apparently are a lot better than their previous shoes without it.

My current shoes are the Gel Res 7, but I've worn the Speed solutions 2 & 3 and liked both the speed's more over the Gel Res 7 because of the snug fit, comfort and quickness. The Gel Res 7 only for the durability as I slide on hard court, although it doesn't lack in the aspects previously mentioned by much.


My next pair of shoes will either the Gel Court FF or Speed Solution FF.

What are your opinions when comparing the Gel Court FF and Speed Solution FF to one another?

Hi @Username_

This video is meant to help :)


In all honesty, both the Speed FF and the Gel Court FF are awesome choices! If you prefer a snugger fit, the Gel Court FF has the bootie, one piece upper, so it is a bit tough to get on, but once you are in there, you are locked in and feel snug and supported.

The updated Speed FF is a bit wider than the 3, closer to the way the 2 fit. We just started playtesting it and I am loving mine -- I've worn them a bunch already and definitely these are my favorite shoes so far this year.

The midsole Flyte Foam on both shoes will feel similar, I wouldn't say one has more cushioning over the other. And I haven't worn the Speed FF enough yet to truly test the durability, but I did wear through the Gel Court FF in a month or two after serious use.

Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with either but I would lean toward the Solution Speed FF since you already know you love the Speeds. (Plus, the price point is a bit lower.)'

Hope that helps a bit,

Michelle, TW
