If you have a serious tennis player in your life, then they will be very impressed, not to mention very grateful, if you give them a new pair of tennis shoes for Christmas. Because the ASICS Gel Resolution is not any old shoe, but one made by a company that seriously knows its tennis kit.
Currently in its sixth edition, the Resolution has become a firm favourite since its launch and the current version is the lightest update on the classic shoe.
If you know someone who plays a lot of tennis, probably hangs around the baseline and runs every ball down, they will love this shoe. Not only is it comfortable, thanks to the Gel cushioning, but it also offers stability and support, with its FluidRide midsole, useful for side-to-side movements. It is also durable, so your gift is likely to still be going, even when the weather warms up.
The Asics Gel Resolution is a tennis shoe for those in the know. ASICS make great running shoes and their tennis shoes are just as good. But don't just take our word for it; the ASICS Gel Resolution is the choice of several top players including Britain’s Johanna Konta – currently ranked No.10 in the world and Frenchman Gael Monfils.
The Gel Resolution 6 is available in a selection of different outsoles, and can be worn for all clay, omni court and hard court games. The herringbone outsole of the all clay model ensures grip on both gravel and clay courts; a ‘stippled’ outsole with pivot points is ideal for the artificial grass of omni courts; and the hard court outsole provides excellent handling on concrete and indoor surfaces.
The ASICS Gel Resolution is a top performing tennis shoe and it is the perfect gift for the serious tennis player. Buy with confidence, because not only is it made with loads of technical knowhow, it looks pretty cool too.
