Asics Gel Blade 3 Squash Shoes

The Asics Gel Blade 3 squash shoes are the latest iteration of the Asics Gel Blade series that are much-loved by squash players. (For the women’s version, see Asics Gel Blade 3 W.)

Update: the latest version of these is the Asics Gel Blade 4.

Here’s LJ Anjema wearing the neon green version of these shoes. I guess LJ just went out and bought every color of this shoe, just in case.

This is a red & silver style. So far I’ve only seen these in one store in South Africa.

Thanks to Tom for the tip!

Looks like there’s also an orange-flavored version, which I haven’t been able to find for sale anywhere:

And here is the 2011 version in red, worn by Karim Darwish:

  • Just bought the silver with red at a sportstore in the Netherlands :-)
    Will try them today :D
    Should I post here what I think about them?


    • Hi Jeroen yes please that would be great!! Thanks

  • Hi there,

    I used to use these shoes but my old pair are worn out and i’m desperately looking for more – but they appear not to make them any more.

    Do you know anyone who has them in a UK 9.5?! That woould be really helpful! I don’t mind about the colour!



    • Hi Christian, I looked around for you. I couldn’t find anything in the UK. Maybe try this affiliate link to They have a couple sizes left. They are European sizes, which I don’t know too well, but you may get lucky. (Also – I’m not sure if will ship to the UK so that’s another wrinkle).

      Good luck!
