I have them, they served their purpose as a very quick and light shoe, but if u bought them thinking they were durable then these shoes aren't for you, I've had the gel resolution 5 n they lasted double the speed solution 2
The shoe also doesn't have enough cushion so I had to get insoles or else my knees will break
They're great "Performance" shoes, but for a person that plays very often n is frugal on money... It was a horrible buy for me

I want to do one more, sorry.
OK!!!!!!!!

How did they perform though? I remember the time..somewhere in 90s..when I had my first proper tennis shoes from Asics..and I thought I had the best ones..

Did anyone had blisters problem with them?? I´ve been wearing the GR5 for a year and my feets were perfectly healthy. Now that I´ve got the Speed 2 first time I use them and got blisters all over my feets...
 
Now that my GR5 are almost worn out, i was thinking of buying the Solution Speed, but i'm afraid i won't get the same durability and comfort. Or maybe Adidas or Nike but i'm afraid of the same things. The only things i don't like in the GR5 are the weight and flexibility, although the latter can be a good thing.

I'm a huge fan. Got multiple pairs. Only 1 turned out to be low durability. Others have held up despite a near daily beating. Super fast lightweight shoe. Trade off must be less cushion but I want speed over cushion personally.
 
You can't compare this in terms of durability to the Gel Res 5s as this is a speed shoe. The solution speeds do allow a bit more sliding than the GR5 which has been beneficial for me while the GR5 is very stable and I had trouble sliding with those on the hardcourts. Get the Gel Resolution if you want stable and durable. Get the Solution speed 2 if you want speed and have a some cash to burn on new shoes. :twisted:

SS 2's are very narrow in the forefoot, so that's where the stretching wear starts even if you have narrow feet, like me.
I NEVER lace the forefoot tightly, as it's already narrow, and then I tighten up the upper 3 eyelets only.
I doubt anyone has narrower feet than me, 10.5's, at 5'10", and 146 lbs., and flat feet to boot.

Also 1/2 size smaller. Maybe even full size. I have a pair of 9.5's in size 11, and even the SS2 in size 10 didn't feel bad.
 
Wait til the Speed 3 comes out next year. I've owned four separate pairs of these and find significant improvements in quality with each generation, the best being the most recent, the Yellow/Green to Grey fade. They're much more robust and feel more durable than the previous iterations.

do you think they really change the shoe from color iteration to color iteration?? It might explain some fit differences I'm having in a newer pair of lotto raptor evo's...
