    Was stuck between this one and another pair that was a little bit more in price. I must say, this pair has done me right since I got them. Haven't had any issues after I broke them in. Initially, like with all new shoes, the leather can be a little bit tight. It also felt a little bulky. But once I started playing in them, you'll notice a difference and benefit in the grip on the indoor court. I think there's another review recommending to get them a half size bigger. Glad I heeded that advice.

    I purchased the white/black/white shoes almost a year ago, and I love them! I normally go through running shoes in about 6 months, so these have definitely held up much better. They have great traction and wear well. Even after a year of playing 2-3 times a week, the soles don't even look worn.

    As many others have said, you should probably get a half size bigger. I normally wear a 12.5 or 12 Wide, so I purchased size 13. They were a little tight width-wise, but once I broke them in, they feel fine.

    I have used Asics Gel Rockets for about 4 years for squash and racquetball. They can feel a bit narrow and tight initially, but that improves with use. The grip is great and the shoes are extremely durable. My previous pair lasted almost 2 years and I was playing for approx 8-10 hours per week for most of that time. Not only are they good to wear with excellent performance, but they also look good too. I cannot see any need to buy a more expensive shoe. I find that I need a half size larger in these than I wear in other shoes.

    These are the best shoes I've come across in a while. They're extremely comfortable and lightweight! And they have tons of nice squeaky traction on the courts. My only issue is that they don't last particularly long. I'm on my third pair after about a year. Since I've been using the shoes for racquetball 2 to 3 times a week, they get tons of abuse and can wear down pretty quickly.

    All in all, it's a great shoe for the price. Just be prepared to get new shoes if you use them a lot. I'm thinking about getting two pairs at once, so I can cycle them to hopefully make them last longer. There's also the new Gel Rocket 6, which I'm dying to try now that I'm a fan of this line of ASICS.

    Good ankle support. Lightweight. Durable. Comfy. Bright white/visible. No significat wear with 2x weekly indoor league play. During recent game someone had tops, I had bottoms, they got hurt I didn't. Don't know if it's because of the shoes, but I walked away unscathed, so I recommend this shoe for sure. Actuallly, probably best court shoe I've tried and a competitive price.

    Wow, what a difference a shoe makes to the game of a player. I had been wearing these cheap normal shoes to Squash and faced a lot of trouble running around the court. A friend suggested me to buy this shoe as its not that expensive but feels like a $100 shoe. My movement inside the court has improved a lot and I don't feel any pain in my ankle now. Mind you, Squash is very hard on your ankles. A very good buy.
