Asics tennis shoes are gaining traction on the tennis court and across the globe. The company was founded in September 1949 by Japanese businessman Kihachiro Onitsuka. Originally, Asics specialized in basketball shoes. However, they expanded their reach to various Olympic sports in 1950, and have been growing ever since. Today, Asics offers more than tennis shoes, they offer tennis apparel as well. Likewise, athletes around the world are endorsing Asics, including ATP tennis pros Matteo Berrettini and the legendary Novak Djokovic.
While Novak wears the Asics Men’s Court FF 3 Novak Tennis Shoes in Blue and Fresh Air, there are more styles and colorways available, including a semi-exclusive, limited edition colorway.
Limited Colorway Tennis Shoes
One of the newest shoes in the Asics family is the SOLUTION SPEED™ FF 3 tennis shoe in a limited edition colorway, pictured above. These shoes feature all-new PRECISION-SOLE™ technology which was developed using both traditional Japanese craftsmanship in cooperation with advanced 3D modeling. Touted for having a better combination of grip and flexibility, the Speed FF’s have been labeled “unstoppable” by Swiss Tennis sensation, Belinda Bencic, ranked No. 21 on the WTA.
Alex de Minaur, ranked No. 11 on the ATP tour, gave critical feedback in helping Asics design the shoes. He stated in a December 2023 press release, “I know when I step on the court wearing ASICS I can be confident I am wearing the best in the game.”
The semi-exclusive, limited edition colorway is in stock and available now at TennisExpress.com. They are ideal for tennis players who are looking for more speed and flexibility and want a lightweight feel without sacrificing comfort.
Besides the Speed FF’s, another new shoe is the Asics Men’s Gel-Resolution 9 Tennis Shoes. It too has a ton of playing components that separate it from ordinary tennis shoes. Built for the players who like to take control of the court, the Gel-Resolutions have DYNAWRAP™ technology to apply extra support as needed. They also have a locked-in feel, which is ideal when making quick, lateral transitions. The full-length outsole and separated heel help produce a more stable landing, and the PGUARD™ toe protector provides additional security against excessive wear. The Gel-Resolution 9’s also come with a 6-month outsole warranty.
*Please note our Tennis Express playtesters recommend purchasing a half a size larger since this style runs a bit on the more narrow side. It’s available in two limited edition colorways, blue or white and black.
