    Can anyone compare these two shoes? I love the Asics but nobody has them available in my size and I am sick of this always happening with Asics.

    Or, if anyone wears the resolutions and can recommend a similar shoe, that would be nice too.

    I've worn both shoes (currently wear the Asics) and much prefer the Gel Resolutions to the Barricade IVs. I found the IVs very heavy and stiff and experienced the common toe-pinching issue with them. The Asics are light, very comfortable, nicely cushioned and have a low to the ground feel. They also have good durability (better than I expected) and I play on hard courts 3-4 times per week. Definitely one of the best tennis shoes I've worn and I recommend them highly, although they can be a bit of a challenge to find. If you can't track down the Asics, another option is the Yonex SHT-305 which I wore prior to the Asics and also liked better than the BIVs.
