Product Details

Take to the court in style with the men's GEL-CHALLENGER® 12 tennis shoe by ASICS. Designed for recreational players, the shoe features under-laying support to help you dart from baseline to net and perform those skilled serves with ease. The SOLYTE™ midsole provides lightweight cushioning with excellent bounce-back and durability, while AHARPLUS™ outsole helps reduce the effects of wear. Under-laying support is provided by the GEL® technology in the fore and rearfoot, placed to increase stability when making quick, lateral movements. TRUSSTIC SYSTEM® technology increases grip and traction to prevent twisting and injury as you move, while the removable ORTHOLITE™ sockliner provides added rebound and effective moisture management. With a bold design, the GEL-CHALLENGER® 12 shoe will add color to your tennis whites and make sure you stand out on the court.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shoes Too Tight Ordered size 11 and wore one time to play doubles. Got large blisters on both heels! Shoes were too tight. Will return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to the Future - in style and comfort Love these shoes. As usual with ASICS, my feet feel like they're on a cloud. And now I can sport that old '80's Miami-style white tennis shoe with the jeans and pink shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd time is the charm I ordered a ladies 7.5 but found that the ladies shoes are too narrow. I chatted with someone online and I asked if it was possible to buy this shoe in a men size. The operator told me to go down 1 1/2 size but then it was too short. So I ordered size Men size 6.5 and it’s perfect. I love the gel in the shoe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe but too narrow I was very impressed with the build quality and materials of this shoe. However, it was way too narrow for me and caused me a great deal of pain in my big toe and the ball of my feet. I was saddened to have to return them. I wish that they would come in a wide size. That is the only reason I didn't give them a 5-star rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking shoes Good fit out of the box. Breaking them in playing pickleball and the have good feel and are light weight. They seem a little stiff, but are wearing in as expected.
