Asics gel res 5 vs gel res 6


New User
Is it just me or do other people think the fives are better than the sixes. They seem to have more support and overall feel comfier right out-of-the-box. Do the Sixes have a break in period? Might be looking to stock up on the 5s before they are gone.


I don't play in either but I tried both. The 6s are wider at the ankle than the 5s, keep that in mind if you don't have a quite wide foot.

anyone try the Gel resolution 6 WIDE? If so, how do you find the arch support and forefoot comfort?

The 6s are stiffer than the 5s, IMO, but for the first time ever, I have not worn through the toe of a tennis shoe - I'm a major toe-dragger, so this is huge.
