Every year when the Australian open tennis season comes, it kicks off the tennis season. Now the Australian open tennis season is underway and in order to beckon more players to challenge themselves and seek more, ASICS grandly launched a new edition of high-tech tennis shoes GEL – RESOLUTION 8 which is designed in collaboration with ASICS’s global brand ambassador Gael Monfils,  a French player who has won eight ATP tour titles, and will also be wearing them for the new season. Surely, the shoes can live up to your expectations.

The Institute of Sport Science has conducted a thorough research to the tennis movement mechanics so that the newest model, the GEL-RESOLUTION 8, was finally developed and it is here to give us more surprises. Tatsuya Ishikawa, principal investigator of the institute’s footwear development team, remarked that “unlike linear running, tennis requires a much more varied form of movement and what we are going to do is make more breakthroughs based on the ground of the previous editions.” And over the years, their efforts are rewarded and we can see that the varied editions of Asics shoes are indeed being upgraded.

Studies also indicate that GEL – RESOLUTION 8, after being tested, has improved by  7.2% in dynamic braking force compared with  GEL – RESOLUTION  7, which can be of great help to players to control some unexpected situations. GEL – RESOLUTION 8 is more than suitable for tennis players because it can help them accurately defend and stroke back powerfully. This time, gels -RESOLUTION 8 launched RETRO TOKYO with ASICS classic red, blue and white color matching which is in homage to the 1964 TOKYO Olympic Games. Further, there are not only several colorways, but there are also some brilliant technologies, say, the DYNAWALL of the shoelaces  allows the player to change directions easily and offers fantastic wrapping and flexibility. Besides, the tongue is fixed to prevent the laces from loosening, making players rattled. And the special pattern on the outsole increases friction between the sole and the ground.

Gael Monfils said that as a professional tennis player, tennis shoes is a very important partner and the very  first requirement is stability and comfort of tennis shoes. Fortunately, GEL – RESOLUTION 8 happens to have excellent stability and strong grip. For me, the shoes can make me more confident for ir just gives me enough sense of balance and stability.

The ultimate goal of designing tennis shoes is for players to work against the clock and make them well prepared to stroke back. So under the circumstance, flexibility is necessary and this is what GEL – RESOLUTION 8 can provide for players.
