Asics Gel Dedicate 7 Review or why I like Asics so much

The time for new tennis shoes for hard surfaces comes. The outsole on my former tennis shoes deteriorated so much that I had to make a change. It is never easy for me, as there are so many options. There are shoes I like visually so much but seem too expensive for my level of play. Frankly, I am always looking for the best value at a reasonable price. I am not saying the design is not important at all, but the quality of the shoes is much more critical. After all, I decided pretty quickly on Asics Gel Dedicate 7 tennis shoes. Let me explain why.

Why am I a big Asics tennis shoe fan?

I have been using Asics Gel Game 5 Clay [review] tennis shoes for years, and they are unbreakable. No matter how hard I try and how many slides I do on clay courts or how poorly I care about them after the game, they still hold together. They are not damaged yet, and it looks like I will have them forever. So when my tennis shoes for hard surface fell apart, the decision was easy. I want Asics tennis shoes for hard courts too.

The reason is apparent. I’m not too fond of shopping and when I am satisfied with something I would like to use it forever. So it is tough for me to change to the new model, especially with tennis shoes. If they fit and your feet are comfortable, then I see no reason for the change. Therefore, I pick the Asics because of my experience with Gel-Game 5 Clay. And I think with purchasing a new pair of Asics Gel Dedicate 7, I made a clever decision.

Why did I buy Asics Gel Dedicate 7?

First of all, the price is excellent. You can buy Asics Gel Dedicate 7 at prices starting at $70. It is just incredible as I was willing to spend almost twice on a new pair of tennis shoes. Just look at some fancy Novak models.

They are so beautiful, but they sell for two times the price I paid.

Except for the price, there are other reasons too. I would say they are even more important and add the value essence to the value-to-price ratio.

The shoes look very solid with durable synthetic leather toe overlays.

The outsole looks solid as well, and I do not expect it to wear out in a short time. Therefore, these shoes should stay with me for several years (three is the minimum, but I hope five to seven at least).

I like the Gel technology that provides shock absorption. The shoes are very comfortable but also offer excellent support.

The feeling during the first weeks of play was priceless. Immediate comfort during the play and no strains or pain after; that is a win-win situation in my age.

And what about the design? I like it. It is not so eye-catching for some people like Novak Court FF Limited Edition, but is it so different?

I do not think so.

And did I mention the price and the solid build of the shoes? Of course, I did.
