    Some people say ASICS run a half-size different, but I ordered my normal shoe size, and they fit perfectly.

    These shoes are actually for volleyball, but good racquetball/squash shoes are getting harder and harder to find online. I've been playing in them for about two weeks now and they seem to work OK. The grip on the floor isn't quite as good as a full gum sole, but it is pretty good. They do seem to be well made and tough. I'll update this review after a month or two of use.

    One month review: Still in great shape. I'd say these are keepers. I'll get them again when this pair wears out.

    Three month review: Still in great shape!

    Six month review: Well, sadly they finally bit the dust. Side ripped out near the sole. I'm ordering a new pair. I think it's fair to say that I got more than my monies worth on these. Six months of racquetball three to four times per week is a real beating on any shoe.

    I play competitive badminton in the USA and have tried a wide range of shoes for my sport. Yonex are really the "go to" brand for badminton, but I just can't find a Yonex pair that fit me right. I take half a size larger than normal in Asics but they fit me great, have excellent shock absorbsion and are half the price of Yonex. I also quite like the goofy color scheme!

    Background : I play competitive badminton(mostly singles) which involves lot of court coverage with speed and accuracy. I had used pricey Yonex shoes all along until my last shoe which inexplicably managed to get a tear along the little-toe line. That was a $140 shoe in it 8th month of use. I couldn't convince myself to spend another $140/- for brand new pair of Yonex shoes and thought of finding something else cheaper.

    About this shoe :
    Fit right(Yonex ones run half size smaller) and little to no lateral movement in the toe-box(Lateral movement of toe in my view has resulted in lot of heat as well blisters or twists in my experience).

    So far, I have tried these shoes on the hardwood and synthetic floors, and they grip just sufficiently(more grip = knee + ankle joint pain, less grip = slipping all over the court).

    Priced perfect for me :-). I don't think I'll go back to Yonex ones unless I find them gift-wrapped at my door-step.

    One bit that I still need to try on is how the gum-rubber sole wears off. The sole must retain most of it's grip at all levels of wear and tear. I'll update this review in about 3 months time.

    Color Name: White/Black/SilverSize Name: 9.5 D(M) US Verified Purchase
    I needed a dedicated pair for indoor table tennis. I was originally a college level tennis player but am getting older so needed a sport to keep my reflexes and stamina up. To this end, I joined a serious club in Chicago with open minded and welcoming players. I feel I am improving dramatically with the help of the competition and these shoes provide lightweight support (I don't need to insert my orthotics - your mileage may vary) as well as gel comfort. Very true to fit. The club meets in a basketball gym with wood floors. I don't feel these shoes slide more than normal indoor court shoes with sufficient grip. For the price, these are a good entry level indoor shoe. They are flat enough for racket sports and feel well made. Personally I would probably choose a higher heeled shoe for basketball and volleyball but I don't play those sports anymore. Very happy with the purchase and fast shipping from Amazon.

    Color Name: Black/SilverSize Name: 10 D(M) US Verified Purchase
    For the most part this is a fine shoe, well constructed, light weight and looks good. My only complaint is that the soles of my previous shoes stuck to the wood gym floor much better than these. Probably it's because the ASICS sole is partial gum rubber where my older Nikes were 100%. In any event, this is a pretty key aspect of a volleyball shoe and why I'm only giving a 3 star rating.

    Sizing note - I had to order these in 10.5 instead of my normal 10 shoe size. FWIW my older Nike Vball shoes are also 10.5.

    Purchased Asics Gel-Rocket 6 Volleyball shoes for my husband. He plays regualary and hadn't had a new pair in awhile. Says these improved his game. Tried to buy locally, but they didn't have his size. These were cheaper and arrived in 1 week.

    What a great shoe! Paid $53 and got a shoe that definetly improved my grip as well as my jumping ability overall. I would highly recommend this shoe to those who are looking for volleyball shoes!

    Outstanding shoes for squash. My experience is they run a full size small, though. I normally wear an 11.5, but needed to get 12.5 in these. This color combo is quite flash - will really impress all the ladies at the squash club! Proper fit across the forefoot, very grippy, and light. Highly recommended. I upgraded from Rocket 4s I bought a couple years ago, so I certainly expect these to be durable as well.
