Thank you for your feedback.
These were no exception and fit perfectly and I have been enjoying using them!!
Super comfortable, and a great shoe for any volleyball player looking to improve their game.
I play and coach volleyball on occasion, and these fit the mold for both of those options.

    The first thing you notice about this shoe (besides it is not white or black or gray - those colors are available though) is how incredibly light it is. However that loss of weight does not mean loss of performance. The shoe is well designed with features needed for playing volleyball "above the net." Good impact protection, good grip, good stability. It has a nice vent in the bottom of the arch that helps the shoe to breathe. It does tend to be slightly snug in width at the ball of the foot (where the bottom lace eyes are across where the toes connect to the foot), but hopefully that will resolve with break in.

    Size: 14 D(M) USColor: Black/Silver Verified Purchase
    When I buy shoes I usually need a 13, sometimes a 14 depending upon the fit of the shoe. After reading some of the other reviews that stated they tend to run smaller, I ordered a 14. They fit great. I submitted that they are somewhat small just to warn others that they need to go either a half or full size bigger.

    The Nike's I had before were getting old, didn't fit right and didn't look that great. These have style, perfect fit and, above all else, perform great. They hug the floor and give great traction for quick changes in movement. They are surprisingly light for their size. And, though I haven't had them long, they seem to be made of higher quality than most previous shoes I've owned.

    Definitely a recommended buy.

    Great Ones but with Mizuno you need 0.5 bigger than your normal size. Keep that in mind next time you buy them

    This shoe has less grip tread on the bottom than my old volleyball shoes, but I knew this from the pictures, i was just expecting them to make up for this in some way. These are great on a new floor that has recently been cleaned, but if there any bit of dirt or if the floor varnish on a wood floor is worn at all they are not the greatest for grip. Not to fault the shoe for the conditions of the playing surface but just my experience, my old Asics didn't seem to so performance dependent on the floor.

    A nice court shoe. I have narrow feet and the size 13 reminds me of this, I had ot snug down the mid-foot laces a bit and am considering using the additional eyelets at the ankle to help secure the shoe a little better.

    The shoes are comfortable and provide great cushioning and traction for lateral movement. I use these for racquetball and have decent mobility.

    Purchased another Mizuno volleyball shoe from Amazon and the delivery was fast and the product is absolutely wonderful. I look forward to purchasing future volleyball shoes from Amazon and this brand. I would like to point out that it's been customary to always order a half a shoe size larger.

    They were light, My Son likes them. To me the material on the top of the shoe did not feel like $100 worth of value,especially the shoelace area, the sole looked fine, just the leather on the top of the shoe seemed thin unfinished on the edges.

    Purchased this pair of volleyball shoes for my daughter to replace an identical old pair. They must have changed the design because both my daughter and a fellow player are experiencing serious foot pain and redness in the area where there is a "v" shaped plastic insert in the area where the shoe meets the toe box, just under the big toe joint. The old and new shoes look identical but they must have changed materials because they do not feel the same on the interior. They are so painful after a having been worn a few times that she will not put them on again.
