    Just wondering if anyone has played with both shoes and how they compare in terms of fit and performance.

    Gel Res 3s are a little more comfy and are more durable. Bothe great shoes though.

    I agonized over my next shoe when the Gel Resolution 2s were discontinued, and after about of a month of checking out specs/reviews of many other shoes, I decided to try 2: the Yonex SHT-307 and the new GR3s. I have slightly wide feet (prob E, not quite 2E) and tend to like a decent amount of arch support.

    I returned the Yonex shoes - just did not feel right at all, tended to force me to pronate, arch support wasn't the "same" as my GR2s.

    I've played about 4 matches on the GR3s - they feel great. Great cushioning, the right amount of arch support, playable pretty much right away (even better than the GR2s if I recall), and I did not suffer any of the "complaints" - the back of the shoe cutting into my ankles, the "lower profile" feel, etc.
