When your first thought is Elton John, the shoe is not for you. I'll pass.
Yeah I just ordered a pair
all canucks there is a warranty in Canada
Emailed asics asking why they don't honour the warranty as per the USA
I was quickly replied with YES we do only in the gR4's
so keep your recipts
i can go threw the soles in a weekend, but well worth it considering youre walking on a cloud
too bad the whole neon color retro 80s look is so 3 years ago.
But I do applaud Asics for having some guts and bring some fun to a market that is staunchily conservative.
asics shoes rock! Have had lots of their Kayanos. But would like to know what you think of SFX, I have Propulse 3 as Contract shoe but also interested in SFX as it is supposedly softer, more comfortable ride?
Man, these are killer.
Really torn on what I call the Lite Brights. Might have to order both the 8.5 and 9 to see what works out best. Seems like it's a mixed bag on the sizing according to the reviews and recommendations.
This shoe is causing me a great deal of pain.
I love love love any shoe that looks different. I don't know why -- it just energizes me.
Trouble is, I have five pairs of Prince T22s in service right now (although two are ready for the dust bin). I was never a big fan of the Resolution.
Then again . . . it's *beautiful!*
Maybe I should just get them already . . . .
I wear nothing but ASICs. I love 'em. And I, too, love any shoe that flips the bird at convention.
I just don't love the idea of paying $120. For any shoe.
Is it wrong that I have every colorway of Asics Gel Resolutions from the 2 to the 4?
I kind of collect them like airforce ones.
Hey guys. Just have a question about the GR4. I have always wanted to try some asics but haven't because I have never had a shoe better than Nike or adidas. So...
#1- how is the cushioning on these shoes, particularly heel?
#2- how is the durability on these shoes? Note: I play about 20 hrs a week on hard courts that are pretty gritty.
Cushioning is superb.
Durability is less than adidas and Nike, but they out do them in other categories to easily compensate.
The cushioning is why many choose ASICs. The durability used to be terrible. But they improved it for generation 3/8 or the Resolutions/Challengers. The Games still wear pretty quickly in my opinion.
Might give them a try...
Is this Europe Exclusive? I dig the bright red, didn't much care for the brick red of the GR3.
I hear you, but remember $120 is really on $60 per shoe if you play often thanks to the wear warranty.
It's like a koala bear crapped a rainbow in my brain!
Actually, I don't hate them...definitely works on the "High Visual Clutter" scale...just not sure I can pull off that look at 47...
Age is just a number. I'm 37 and am very tempted by these. My only confusion is to size down or stay the same size. Guess I could just order both and send the ones back that don't work.
IMO the best Gel-Resolution colorway ever!
True, but there are so many options available at $40, or less, per shoe.
119 $ is a VERY good price for this shoe! Here in Sweden, the normal Gel Res 4 is about 1400 SEK (around 200 US $) :shock:
Goodness...that's a ripoff
That's why they have the disclaimer / rule : "US sales only"
was there ever an explanation as to the inspiration for the pychadelic colors?
Cost of living tends to be quite high in Sweden.
Lovely country but go into a normal bar in Stockholm, and a pint of Coca-Cola will be the equivalent of $6-$7.
Did you choose your normal size, or go a 1/2 size smaller as recommended?
yes sir, I'm a true US 10 in Nike/adidas. A live outside pic from a point and shoot. Unlike, TW's studio $1000plus DSLR pic
Jeez thanks for the pic, these are sick!! :shock: :shock:
I bet you will get A LOT of comments about them oncourt.
Sucks they are US only
So, did you size down or not?
Seeing them in that setting, they seem like they'll work well with white and green shorts and shirts. I was worried maybe I'd look like a clown on the court, but they're not nearly as bad without the women's colors and confetti all around.
ArliHawk- YES went down to a 9.5
NRod2- and WHITE socks (asics resolution crew- my OCD kicks in and I HAVE to have the same brand sock/ shoe combo)
Got these shoes today and played 4 sets. Felt great and looked ugly ... er awesome
Anywho, I went 1/2 size small and wished I had not. They are fine, I will play them and wear them out ... but the extra 1/2 size would be just a little more comfy ...
Now I am just all worlds of confused. Some say size down, others say normal size. Too confusing.
Will have to try them on at my local shop.
It seems that people with wider feet should stay with their normal size,
and people with normal to narrow feet should go 1/2 size down.
This is not true for me. I have narrow feet and they fit true to size to me.
Here is my feedback:
Well, going down 1/2 size fitted me and three TW playtesters. (See the review)
The important thing is that you found what works for you. Now enjoy your GR4
I really wanted the blue\silver till I saw these. Ordered them a few minutes ago.
Black/red GR4 colorway for Europe this Autumn:
The photos seem to have disappeared?
I'm only seeing a white square with a red cross.
I hope not Europe only. Those are the best colors I've seen so far for the GR4.
Not true for me also ... while I have large feet (size 13) they are not wide for their size ... every time I have ever been fit my feet have been long and lean ... just like I wish I were.
that's because I DELETED them.
Which begs the obvious question.....
This colorway is sick!!! Has to be the best of the year.
My wife's arrived today. Wow
I can't post pics yet but if anyone wants to see a real life shot, let me know, I can snap/send to someone to post.
Those are the best so far. That probably means Europe only.
I like them. Conservative but not boring. Classy looking in a restrained way, though I'd like to see a bit more gold in the colorway.
There's also a women's version of this which has a identical colorway as the men's. Speaking to a retailer friend of mine though, he's not going to stock them because doesn't think that colorway is going to sell that well to women.
Absolutely LOVE what Asics are doing at the moment with the range of GR4 colorways being offered. I just wish all the colorways were available equally in US and Europe.
I know. I have made it my personal goal to get each one of the colorways released, but international shipping is a beast.
