My new Japanese Asics (Navy/White) Gel-Game kicks. (pics)

#1
Just got them today. And am happy with not only the look / colourway of them. But as with my two other pairs of Asics kicks. These fit like, and feel like a glove.

Don't get me wrong. My newly acquired Asics Gel-Challenger's are a great shoe. But I am kinda funky about matching shoes and outfits. And as the Challengers have red and silver contour's. I was looking for a shoe with navy and silver countour's for the navy coloured gear that I wear from time to time..

I was looking at the Gel-Resolution's. But I didn't like the true blue, red, and black colourway's that we get here in Japan. So when I saw that these Japanese version Gel-Game shoes were in white and navy, I jumped at getting them..







And with the red and silver Asics Gel-Challengers. And red and white Asics Excourt II's.

Well if you are OCD like me and Jolly, then you would probably make use of them.. Although Jolly is a Nike boy...
Ya, im ocd, i just ordered matching babolat grips, babolat strings, a babolat bag, some babolat clothes, babolat shock absorbers, and all this because i switched companies. OCD sucks. lol:)

My wife was doing some research on children's feet as our daughter needed knew shoes. I was surprised that when we got to the Sports Authority, she walked strait up to the Asics section and they had all the literature on children's feet ect, and massive selection of shoes..

I didn't think that a company would care all that much about their children's range, but yup, they were #1 in the eyes of the staff and so my daughter now proudly wears her pink asics with silver stripes. Even I must say they cool on her!.. My wife says she will be next to join the asics family..

I don't think there is any difference, other than colour available. I had a look at the Gel-Game shoes in the US and wasn't able to find the Navy. And the ones I did see I wasn't all that excited about the colour of them.. As asics is a Japanese company. I think we just get a better range of shoes as compared to you guys.

nice :)
how do the womens shoes look like ?
are they nice like the navy ones you have ?
Hi, actually I don't really know, but my wife has just ordered the Womens's Gel Challengers, and they are a light blue version of my red shoes.. As for the Gel-Game, I am sure that if they came in smaller sizes, they would be fine for a woman to wear. Tatiana Golovin always wore the men's Gel-Resolution, so can't see why a woman can't wear these, if you are able to find the right size?

If possible please post how your wife likes the Gel Challengers! I'm planning to buy a pair of ASICS for my next tennis shoes when the time comes so any comments about the Challengers or Resolutions are appreciated! :)

hey chris, how are you liking the asics gel game? I was looking at picking up a pair myself. Could you possibly do a little review comparing them to the challengers? If so it'd be much appreciated
