I was watching Tiafoe wear the GP Turbo last night against Berrettini, but one of Osaka's colorways. Driving me nuts. I've gone through 2 pairs already and have another that I bought when supplies got really low. Now can't find any remaining in my size. Frustrating.

Any shoes similar to these out there? Asics? I like their running shoes. I stretch my GPs out with golf balls in the toe box for 48 hours and tie loose works great.

Sold! I'll get the Osaka color way
I should have clarified I meant like... "narrower by 1 width size AFTER the length adjustment"

Ie. After you go up 1.0 or 1.5 when using women's sizing, after the length has "matched your men's sizing", you may find the 2-3mm difference in width. Again this is AFTER you have already adjusted the size for length. But I think you got what I meant

That was my assumption. I'm 10 in mens, so 11.5-ish in women's. Here goes nothing!

I know you didn't ask but if narrow fitting yet stable shoes are your thing, other than the old eclipsions and gp turbos, the diadora b.icons are also good. They do have an issue with the uppers tearing though so if they fix that in the future, it can be something else you may consider.

Had shin splints all throughout wearing Solecourt Boosts and then the new Barricades. I've been wearing GP Turbos since Feb and my shin splints are finally gone. Love these shoes! This can't be the end of the line..... right?

There is a new colorway of Turbos, Anisimova had it in her first round match. Something like washed red or pink? with green swoosh.

Funny how Courier was commenting how Tiafoe is wearing a model you can't get anymore and Sinner is wearing the model that came before the GP Turbos.

I tried Turbos today and I’ve never ever had anything as comfortable as these. I ended up with half size up as my size wasn’t available to try and it’s a good fit.
Really I don’t know how people are not happy with these. I used FF2s 2.5 year and they are almost perfect shoe but in Turbos comfort is on another level. I have also Zoom NXT and these are terrible shoes and I don’t know how these can be a replacement for Turbos. So hard and uncomfortable.

They really are amazing.

People say they are too heavy, but I find myself absolutely floating through the air when I play with them. Like especially on short-hop approach shots where you're picking up a BH half-volley from your shoelaces...I can literally leap through those shots because of all the cushioning.

A few times I would get into the air and realize "oh sh*t, this is too much hang time" and prepare for a foot injury...but the shoes are so cushy and supportive I just land like a freaking cat every time. They may be heavy but they enable me to hit another level of athleticism because I'm not worried about hurting my feet anymore.

I got my USO Osaka color way that Tiafoe rocked! They're super sweet in person. I guess I hope they keep coming out with new Osaka colors since they discontinued the guys' stuff.

The problem for me the biggest size is 12 means 44.5 29cm and I should have 29.5cm but maybe I’ll try :-D

I think they only kept GP Turbo because Osaka didn’t want to switch to Zoom NXT. So until she switches to something new they might release some new colors from time to time.

notice any difference in the width of the last @Rosstour

Not really, although I haven't been playing with my men's pair because they are white and therefore very versatile gear-wise. So I'm trying to spare them...my women's pairs are the Dark Raisin, Healing Jade, and Copa.

But, they all felt the same when putting them on for the first time.

Yep, might as well call them "Osakas" from here on out, they will be one of those shoes that gets retro'd from time to time IMO, and people will complain that the re-releases don't have the full Zoom Air cushioning...

Maybe I'll try two pairs on and see if there's a difference.

Court Zoom NXT is a god awful replacement of the GP Turbo. It's not a horrible shoe, good for performance, but feels like it should be part of a completely different line. Feels more Cage 3 to me than GP Turbo. So stupid of Nike to discontinue this shoe. A local shop for me in Atlanta still has a few left that I'm going to stock up on, because I will absolutely hate when these are gone for good. GP Turbo is right up there with some of my favorites of the past few years (Diadora Blueshield 5, Lotto Raptor 100, Yonex Eclipsion 4, Adidas Ubersonic 2)

I know EXACTLY what you mean. The energy return is phenomenal, while still meshing well with the outstanding comfort. That glide feeling is unmatched. My only complaint is that the outsole isn't the most durable in my experience, probably average. Other than that, just an awesome offering.
