Now up on our website:
Hmm, I wonder if something's wrong with my monitor or video card.
I know these are going to be love em/hate em kind of shoe.
I love em.
These will make your opponent loose his concentration or if one gets lost in the woods someone will find you from a distance
Its interesting how the excessive color will increase the price of the shoe, lol
A Simple Ferrari Red/White or Red/Black Colour Scheme would suffice.
However, Nothing makes an opponent more mad then loosing a match to a guy with these shoes on!
- Love them
I just bought a pair. I hope I get these in time for my match on Saturday!
What. The. Hell....
Yea, I don't like them!
Just be careful with your apparel or youll look like a clown out there
Pretty sweet shoes but not for tennis. They look like running shoes that I would wear. Do they give the illusion that you are moving faster than you really are?
I love ASICs shoes, but I wouldn't wear these under any circumstance.
I don't get it. I love the GR4s. Would LOVE a sleek exclusive colorway like a black/orange, even a green/white ala the Speed Solutions. The blues didn't really do it for me, and then I saw a headline for yet another Exclusive Colorway, got excited, and I clicked on it and almost thought it was a belated april fool's joke. These things are unquestionably the ugliest shoes of all time.
Definately very colorful to say the least..
Ok, time to 'fess up. Who came up with this combo of atrocity and monstrocity?
Spencer? Brittany? Jason?
Awesome! I was looking for some clown shoes to represent my tennis game lately...which has been a joke.
But seriously, I suppose this is the one time I can try out the 80's fashion! I feel like I'd have to have some parachute pants, and tie-dyed shirts to complete the outfit!
These are loud and obnoxious. I MUST GET A PAIR! Too bad I have a contract with Nike for apparel and shoes.
Well... my contract is with myself to stick with only one brand to avoid being a cross-dresser.
No doubt that these will sell...but if I may ask, why do you hate Asics?
I recently switched to GR3 in February coming from the B6 and CB 3.3 (terrible terrible shoe for me) and I couldn't be happier. I bought an extra pair because I knew I'd wear them down within the 6 months.
I believe the designer of these shoes had too much of the good stuff...
The 'kid-in-me' says "awesome!". Gotta go with the 'kid-in-me'.
I don't think they look 80's-ish. I've been looking at shoes for a couple weeks now, and if these were the right fit for me, I would say these just sprung to the front of the line. I could have some fun in those shoes!
However, in the close ups they look a little cheap around the edges...
I like them. I often thought of getting a pair of miadidas Barricades with a crazy color scheme that would resemble rental bowling shoes ~or~ a color way that looked like circus colors. But they are too expensive to have made. Anyway, this sort of looks like that.
Any plans for TW Europe or clay version?
Im still waiting for someone to make a pink poly!
Pacific Poly Force and Volkl Cyclone both come in pink...
poly force is "salmon" not quite a match for the shoes....
and the Cyclone looks pretty red to me...:-?
Yes, I like them too, I'm sure my footwork will become as explosive as this colorway - more victories for happy feet! Tennis is supposed to be fun sometimes
Waginen, shoot me a message if you are interested in getting those to Europe.. I have the same question as you and a possible solution
Love the zany, 'fun' element to them and the fact that Asics are prepared to do something different.
Brings a smile to your face!
The shoe, performance and comfort wise is ON POINT. Color wise- I dig as well. It's not like this is Asics first dabble in this colorway. They've been doing it on their runners.
It's like Rainbow Brite puked on some Asics
Is it the year 1990 or 1991?:shock:
Where did that weird annoying kid who loved My little pony go?
On second thought, he is not worthy of these GOATS.
I thought about mentioning the Noosas!
The Tri 6s had a more interesting design IMO - pure urban art at its very finest, and look at the attention to detail including the color changes on the laces. I didn't have the cajones to buy a pair though!
So that's what it looks like when a unicorn vomits on your shoes!
Must have a pair!
those are the most hideous shoes that i have ever seen. and yet...i must have them. must be because i grew up in the 90's. i'm having nickelodeon and saved by the bell flashbacks
Yeah pretty much sums it up for me too. But I'm not gonna pull the trigger and buy them just yet haha
Has anyone seen these colorways from TWE?
europe gets such better colorways in Asics. It makes no sense at all.
Totally awesome like gag me with a spoon, y'know. Question, would a size 14 fit my size 15 foot since they only run 1/2 size big.
what about socks to match???
Not sure about that!
The multi-colored ones are a US exclusive, along with the all blue ones, and the all-white ones. The European colorways just seem a bit unadventurous in comparison.
US gets loud and brash colorways.
Europe gets conservative colorways.
Do you think Asics are trying to say something? :mrgreen:
I would love to see a pro wear a pair of those multi-colored ones in a Slam. Sales would shoot through the roof!
This is so much more sexi yet classi
I got the GR4 and it pissed me off that Asics decided to go cheap on the Asics' inner side logo of the shoe (top photo). If you look at the top photo carefuly you can tell that the logo is made out of a cheap "pastiky" material.
Even thought I wouldn't personally buy them, I totally agree. It's a great marketing ploy to sell shoes. Plenty of kids and even some adults want bold colors and graphics and simply want to be "funky," different from everyone else. That's good. Not everyone has to be the same.
Clearly, it's not for for everyone, and I don't think Asics for a minute thinks that it is. Obviously, some people won't like them.
But, there's tons of "safe" options for people who don't want these, including other variations of Gel Resolution 4s. It can't hurt to have the option.
Separate names with a comma.
