Compared to others on my list, I can assure you that this is the cheapest among them. Being on the cheaper side does not mean this pair is behind any other. Contrary to that, it is exceptionally comfortable.

I did not rely only on a playtest. Instead, after gathering various reviews, I found that maximum players have also opted for this one for regular use. Wearing it for a longer time does not makes the feet uncomfortable.

It is one of the reasons this pair has gained popularity. It is very light weight that is given for such comfortability. Not many found problems with this pair commenting that they used it for a brief period and were satisfied. This pair has a breathable upper that keeps the feet dry. It is easily one of the best tennis shoes by Asics in this list.

Asics Gel went for something different when they designed Game 8. To maintain stability, durability, and comfort, Asics aimed to add ventilation and increase breathability. Thus they went with a minimal design. A plain upper with increased flexibility and added gel technology gives you Gel Game 8.

It is made especially for players who desire to play for more extended periods. Fortunately, I also got a chance to playtest with Gel Game 8 and one of my friends. However, he plays regularly only to keep fit.

Gel Game 8 gives the perfect feel and is supportive on all grounds. More than 17 people out of 25 expressed they maintained stability on rough courts, and the pair was very flexible.

3 out of the remaining did say the comfortability was compromised at some point. However, that was due to the narrow fit of the pair. Overall this pair has an 8/10 score from the survey I gathered. All in all, it is a perfect fit for beginners and intermediate players.

Overall positives and negatives

  • Not much costly
  • Extreme breathability
  • Enhanced Flexibility
  • Indubitably lightweight

Since this pair is preferred by women, Asics provided a wide range of designs and colors. In the Asics line, Gel Resolution 8 is always my go-to pair. With significantly fewer negative reviews, Resolution 8 stands among the best of the best in tennis. It is actually suitable for multiple courts.

This pair is highly recommended for rough players and runners. The reason for that is its dampening effect. In Asics line, Gel Nimbus 23 is famous for providing extreme dampening impact while running, jumping, and sliding

This pair became famous for its comfy feel with ultra-soft cushioning throughout the sole. Not to mention Gel Nimbus is one of the releases with so many updated versions and is still continuing. You will feel a better change with every update than the last version.

Before, I never got a chance to experience the feel. However, among my fellow tennis players, almost everyone recommended it for a comfy ride. But after the temptation, I opted for a playtest. As expected, Gel Nimbus 23 is true to its reputation and provides a breathable upper mesh.
