ASICS clay court shoes

The men and women’s ASICS ranges have been specially modified for clay courts

With the 2018 French Open underway most tennis eyes are fixed on the orange courts of Roland Garros. The clay court season may be coming to its climax but if you are heading to a clay court in the UK or perhaps on your holiday, then ASICS has a range of shoes specially designed to help you slide you way across the clay.

Clay court movement makes special demands on players, and so it is imperative that your footwear can meet those demands.

All of the men and women’s ASICS ranges have been specially modified for the terre battue.  The herringbone sole enables the shoe to move over the clay.

The shoe that caught the tennishead gear editor’s eye was the GEL Solution Speed 3 clay LE.  In the men’s range the dark grey, black and lapis colours gave the shoe a bold look and for women the flash coral and canteloupe colours contrast with the orange of the surface.

Using rear foot and forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems, this style attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, allowing extra movement as the foot transitions. 

Just like a running shoe, the GEL Solution Speed allows you to comfortably run non-stop thanks to the levels of cushioning, especially designed to aid every step and updated to support you on clay courts. 

Two layers of memory foam line the collar and mould the heel, creating a personalised fit, while the Flexion Fit upper provides form-fitting comfort without sacrificing support. 

The lightweight Solyte midsole enables you to run fast, while enhanced cushioning and durability means your foot stays comfortable and your shoes will last.

The GEL Solution Speed 3 clay also comes in a range of colours.

The GEL Resolution 7 clay, the GEL Challenger 11 clay and the GEL Court Speed clay are testament to the fact that ASICS has a range of shoes and prices to suit every one. All of the shoes incorporate the clever technology that means you can focus your attention on your game and not worry about your feet. 

If you want to see the pros wearing ASICS shoes at Roland Garros, then look out for ambassadors Novak Djokovic, David Goffin, Johanna Konta, Coco Vandeweghe and Julia Goerges.
