Since ASICS supply sucks right now and for the foreseeable future, is the KSwiss Ultrashot a good alternative?

Ultrashot 3 felt even wider to me than the ultra shot 2 I had been wearing. Didn't buy it. I wear a standard 9.5 with medium foot, regular arch. Gel res 8 fits well for me.

Why would they use different fabric in this colorway of the shoe? This is my first time trying out the shoe and I bought this version. Unfortunately I'm getting major heel slippage because its all nylon where the heels are..

I had the normal lining on GR8 and it wore away by the heel

It got worse and filed a warranty claim and it got approved in about an hour.
Unfortunately, Asics.com is all out of GR8's in my size

what do?

the voucher for a replacement expires in 6mos. Maybe I'll be able to score some GR9's?

Can anybody compare the gel challenger 13 to the gel resolution 8? What was the durability and stability and support like compared to the resolution?

Anybody???
Less, less, and less.

But more comfy and low to the ground feeling. That has been the Challenger manifesto for years. 80% of the shoe for 30-40 bucks off.... at the cost of the outsole warranty.I would say it is perfectly fine for competitive recreational play and I am loving mine.

So when you mean less, you mean features I presume? As the challenger 13 won’t have that stabilizer thing on the inside, and a smaller dynawall on the outside.

Yes. I edited my post. Its softer and lower to the ground. Which I personally like. I havent worn through mine yet but at the rate I am going they wont last 6 months

I have both. Initial feeling when putting on challenger - lighter, a bit wider in the toes, closer to the ground, less plush. I’d say same stability as gel resolution. My feet feel much toastier in challenger which is weird, cause it feels/looks like it should be more breathable…

I wish I can say I like the FF2's at least as much as I love the GR8's
Maybe you can try the 3's and see what the update is about or even resell them or trade for the G8. I live now in Colombia and here we have plenty of the G8 but in Clay outsole and the Tokio colorway in all court. Wish I could help you getting ones
