Deal Details

For all you tennis players out there, here's a pretty smoking deal on some of the best tennis-specific shoes I've tried - Asics Gel Resolution 4's. They're on sale at Amazon for $60.32 shipped (black version) or $62.98 shipped (white ). There's also a special promo going on for signing up for Amazon's Shoe email subscription (first time subscriptions only), where you can get another 20% off of one order of qualified shoes, when they email you the one-time promo code. So, you can get these shoes for about $48 or $50 delivered! The cheapest available right now is $79.99 elsewhere like Tennis Warehouse, etc. The shoes are very comfortable, stable and come with a 6-month guarantee. As of now, there seem to be plenty of sizes available. Here's the link:

Some of the smaller sizes in the BLACK are OOS fulfilled by Amazon, but anything size 8.5 and up seem to still be in stock.

Hate to spend too much for a shoe but play tennis every week.. are these really worth spending 50$ ?
The way I look at it is that I love playing tennis and try to play 2-3 times a week at a fairly 'serious' but fun level. In my opinion, having a decent quality shoe makes a difference - from being able to stop and maneuver, to being comfortable and most importantly, preventing injuries especially on hard courts. Of course everybody plays tennis differently , but I think $50 is well worth it for these that are considered premium shoes. (They're only being discounted now because Asics is coming out with the Gel Resolution 5 soon.) I'm with you about spending too much for a shoe. I'd pretty much never spend the $125 they normally cost, or even the $80 closeout price they currently at at most of the big tennis sites. But, for $50 shipped and free returns, I figured it was worth it for me.

Thanks, OP. Great deal!



I got the 20% off email instantly after I subscribed.

I just picked up a black pair, and started to wonder if I should have chosen the white. Has anyone felt that wearing black shoes causes their feet to heat up more? I've read this article (http://www.americaspodiatrist.com...your-feet/), but I was wondering if anyone had personal experiences with this.
Interesting article. I've never felt a difference wearing black shoes, but then again, never paid that much attention. shake head

Bought for $48.26 shipped with Prime. Free returns was key due to the size discrepancies in the reviews

Lol that article you may have just read is horribly missing the point of physics in regards to color..

IIRC my basic physics class - WHITE colored objects reflect light rays a lot easier, making things inside the white objects longer to heat up; it works in reverse when cooling down, a white object will cool down much slower then a BLACK object.

Black objects heat up rather quickly since the color (shade if you wanna be technical) absorbs the light rays easier and temps inside increase faster. However, black objects cool off at a much faster rate than whites.

So i find the article's referenced "studies" just overlooking simple physics, LOL. Pretty sure the studies weren't done in very low-light areas or complete darkness...which would then negate the diff in temps haha

Thanks.. I play at a somewhat serious level too (3.5 - 4.0 level)... any idea how long these last? I had adidas tennis shoes that I got from jcpenney on sale and they didnt last in the hard courts too much.. now i'm playing with my new balance running shoes and i feel comfortable in them but don't want to ruin them as I use them for occasional running as well..

This code works on any Amazon shoe purchase, so you can also apply it to the Asics Kayano 18. They have some of them still marked at $72--so you can get that one for under $58 if it is in your color and size. That one is a running shoe.

Hard to say about length of time shoes will last. Again, depends on your body build, playing style and amount of play, I would say. There are people that can go through a pair of the toughest tennis shoes in as little as a month or two, which is why they like the 6 month guarantee. I'm going to guess that these will definitely outlast your jcpenney tennis shoes by quite a bit? As far as your running shoes go, there's no disputing the comfort of running shoes. But, as far as playing tennis goes, you lose the stability of side to side motion and stopping ability on the tennis courts. I think people more easily roll their ankles using running shoes, since they're mostly for going straight ahead. Smilie Hope you like them! If not, the free return is excellent!

Wish I could help you, but never played squash. From what I've observed, squash and racquetball shoes seem to have a different sort of rubber compound on the soles. I'm guessing they're a softer rubber, but don't know if the tennis soles would be 'bad' or not.

I have the Gel Resolution 3 shoes (which I bought for $100 on sale) which are the previous generation, and they have lasted me over a year and a half so far. I'm really rough on my shoes and normally shoes don't last longer than 6-9 months for me. I'm a 4.0 player.
