New Asics Court FF 2

Any chance of new colors for this shoe? The other models have nice new color schemes, and their most expensive shoe keeps getting overlooked.

Bought my first pair, it’s this one:

Hopefully I will be able to play again soon, but from what I can tell it’s super comfortable. My shoe of choice is the gel res 8, and the upper on this shoe feels slightly more comfortable, like better tongue padding and higher ankle. Only thing I’m hoping it has from what I’ve heard is good sole durability. 170 for a shoe is quite expensive, but I got mine for 99. Hopefully will hit this week or the next!

Got mine in the new Mako blue color. Awesome shoes. Same comfort as my old Res 7 but much lighter. It's just hard to match your outfit with this color.

So my clay season here in Denmark is coming to an end, and I've used these shoes for the entire season (approx 5 months)

They are without a doubt the best tennis shoes I've ever owned. Having usually played with Nike Vapor and Nike Cage, these are just 2-3 steps up in terms of quality. I've especially been impressed with the traction and definitely the least slippery clay shoes I've tried.

But, and there is always a but, now that I'm wrapping up the season two big holes have emerged on each shoe. That is pretty disappointing to be honest, considering these are one of the most expensive clay shoes on TW. I was hoping they could last at least two seasons, but apparently, that is not possible. Have anyone else tried this?

A bit shocking to me. I always think clay shoes will last longer due to less friction with the surface.

Incredible shoe. £120 but worth it. This and the court ballistecs 3.3 the only shoes I’ve tried that didn’t give me feet pain.

I've been using the HC version for a few months. The outsole is a bit stickier than what I'd like, and I would have honestly gone an half size down in hindsight: they fit a bit long. The laces are also indeed a bit thin. However if you look at them as stable, durable shoes, they're IMO very well done. A good Barricade spiritual successor that IMO fits more foot type than the Barricade line. I enjoy them a lot more than the last few Barricades with their light upper but thick midsole and outsole. In the FF 2, everything is solid and the consistency in the design is there: it's made to be durable and supportive, end of. I probably wouldn't choose them for clay since outsole durability isn't as much of a concern on dirt.

The sole does a bit, but the herringbone still gets shallower with time. You don't get holes in your sole like you do on hard court, but footing and traction can become problematic even if the shoe looks fine. However, the rest of the shoe (midsole and upper) can still be damaged by the dirt. Just like strings in that regard... For example, the Vapor line since the 9th quite frequently would tear itself apart between the toe guard and the midfoot on clay, especially if you used the HC version on clay: the dirt got in the upper and friction would seal the deal. That being said, even if a shoe doesn't look too damaged, I still would swap them once per year as the cushioning tends to go away anyway even if the shoe looks "fine" from the outside.

Hi, since you use Nike a lot do this shoes have the same heel slipage as the resolution 7 or 8? I really want to try Asics shoes but the heel slipage in the 7s was crazy and some say going half size down from regular would fix the problem. Thanks

Been using the FF2 for a couple months now. It is a great shoe and no, it is not in any way "clunky". However, as someone that had 3 pairs of the original Court FF shoes, I can say I really did prefer those to the FF2. While the FF2 provides greater ankle stability, it's upper doesn't breathe as well and its rigidity is actually causing corns on a couple of my toes. Now, while my foot anatomy is a contributor to the corn formation, this was never an issue with the FF, which had more room in the toe area plus expanded more due to the fabric rather than hard/plasticky upper.

That all said, I have 2 pairs of FF2 and will use them until they aren't useable. But, I will look forward to the FF3 and hope it returns to a more breathable and flexible upper.

I have just bought the Resolution 8, and have not experienced heel slippage on either that or the Court FF. But must admit I felt my foot was "deeper" down in the court FF than the Resolution 8.

The Court FF are similar to the Cage, but just more stable and better quality.

horrible horrible, that is why they have to add the Graphene mesh in 3rd layer to prevent that from ever happening

Perfect - now waiting for the older colorways to go on sale (~$110 is a great price) in average human sizes LOL.

FF1 was one of my all time favorites. I like the FF2 also, but it's a totally different shoe than the one it replaced.

Agree...FF1 is actually a superior shoe IMO outside of the ankle protection afforded by the FF2. I think the more forgiving mesh top-of-foot-front area in the FF1 is more comfortable, cooler, and better for foot health (for me), but the FF2 is still pretty damn good. It also looks better. If Asics re-released the FF1, I'd be first in line.

The white-green one is suppose to be the Wimbledon shoe, but with that sole, tongue and back of the shoe I expect either for it to never appear in the match or a repeat of vapors from 2013 or the lacoste cap from 2019.

I'd be second. But I wish the Goat FF had come in a clay sole, too.

How is it that the gel resolution line comes with a 6 month outsole guarantee and the court ff’s don’t? And how is it no one ever talks about that haha they are both flagship models for ASICS.

Agree on the outsole warranty on a $170 shoe...it should have one. If there is a silver lining, though, I have been able to get well over 6 months with regular (basically daily) play on all 3 pairs of my court FF and so far my court FF2 are holding up fine (one pair has 4-5 months of regular play on it and should be fine for a few more).

Anyone else experiencing durability issues with these shoes? On the right shoes the laces cut through the holes, both sides of the shoes. On the top of the shoes, the "wavy pattern" is sheared at two different locations. Quite disappointing as the shoes are excellent beside that.

As long as you don’t drag your toes the upper stays generally in form. For the laces, I have been replacing the stock laces Asics gives due to them being thin and not comfortable.

I've worn the Court FF Novak for a few weeks now, and I'm getting blisters on the inner side of my left and right ankle (where the stitching that binds the sock liner together / where the plastic material is at its highest) even after wearing thicker socks. Has anyone else faced this issue, and did you do anything about it?

I've had a little pain in the place you're talking about... like the shoe was sort of rubbing in that spot. Once the shoes loosened up, the pain went away. It never got so bad that I got a blister.

The first 2 pairs are likely to end up as non - ND CWs (although they have Reiki and dove symbols here, I've seen them without those and with regular Asics logo on the back).

These are the newest ND version available:
