Continuing to produce the type of footwear that has become synonymous with success at the highest levels of pro game, the 2o16 line up for Asics Tennis promises to be its most durable, lightweight and effective to date.

Sponsoring the likes of Gael Monfils, Vasek Pospisil, Steve Johnson and Philipp Kohlschreiber, the all-new Gel Resolution 6, Gel Solution Speed 3 and Gel Solution Lyte 3 will have any player moving at the top of their abilities. Offered in a multitude of colour-ways for all levels of play, here’s the full men’s line up for Asics Tennis 2016.

Gel Resolution 6

Improving on it’s already durable frame, the 2016 edition of the Gel Resolution 6 is as impressive as ever. Fitting true to size and allowing for great range of motion in the forefoot and heel area, the stability and comfort of this shoe continues to be a favourite for its fan-base. Upgraded from its 2015 model, the latest version provides even more stability with a new mid foot support system and external heel counter that completely locks in the foot and resists twisting on aggressive movement at the baseline as well as moving up to forecourt. Weighing in at 15.2 ounces, the Gel Resolution 6 isn’t the lightest shoe on the market, but you will be hard-pressed to find a more stable one. Priced at $129.95 US and backed by a 6-month outsole warranty, the Gel Resolution 6 is now available for purchase here (This shoe is available for both hard and clay courts).


Gel Solution Speed 3

Perhaps our favourite shoe of the new lineup, the Gel Solution Speed 3 continues to stand up to its name as being one of the lightest shoes on the market. Highlighted by an all-new full length PU upper with Flexion Fit for increased support, comfort and flexibility, the personal Heel Fit technology locks in the back of the foot for better stability and performance. Continuing to fit true to size as with all of the premium Asics shoes, the Gel Solution Speed 3 is even lighter than its predecessor. Packed with other great features like Signature GEL cushioning for a great plush feel, the latest offering for Gael Monfils will be ready for any court in the world. Priced at 134,90 €, the Gel Solution Speed 3 can be purchased here.
