These were fantastic shoes, the Tornado 6, they lasted a very active full season of volleyball.

Before this pair of shoes, I've been playing with some Nike Tennis shoes that actually worked really well for me.

    They are light and great traction.

    Vertical jump with WT6 feels good due to the soft cushioned landing.

    Better traction, more confidence, and jump higher - everything you could ask for in a volleyball shoe.

    These are by far the most comfortable best volleyball shoes ever. The Mizuno Wave Tornado 6 shoes replaced a pair of very nice Asics Gel Rockets (ASICS Men's Gel Rocket 5 Volleyball Shoe). In comparison, during my first volleyball practice, it was clear these Mizuno's are something special. The first match proved it. I don't think about shoes while playing. But I noticed that these shoes had much better traction. Where I slipped or didn't have the most positive foot plant with the Asics, these shoes held solid on the court. The heel has this big shock absorber that helps with landings and allowed me to jump just a little bit higher.

    These are much lighter shoes. They also breathe much better, keeping my feet cooler during a match. For my size fourteen foot, this is an outstanding volleyball shoe. Well worth the price.

    January 19, 2012 Update: As with everything else, new improved versions get released. These were fantastic shoes, the Tornado 6, they lasted a very active full season of volleyball. They got really heavy use, and mostly one season is all I expect to get out of a pair of athletic shoes. It came time to replace these and the latest Tornado 7's are out. They are simply fantastic. Well worth the upgrade. Mizuno tweaked a lot of little things on the shoe. The sole has magnetic grip with the floor. The leather looks like three grades better - it is actually shiny and smooth. Everything is refined over the 6's. Both shoes are really great, the 7's are just that much better.

    Asics running shoes fits my feet the best with regular width size. If you're a Asics fan, WT6 feels much narrower in comparison. I think the tongue is shorter than most shoes.

    I bought it for badminton instead of volleyball. WT6 is a volleyball shoe, it has great cushioning and superb traction. Plenty of breathable mesh to keep your feet cool even after playing long hours on them. Vertical jump with WT6 feels good due to the soft cushioned landing. If you're a volleyball player, WT6 should be high on your list.

    If you're a fellow badminton player, be aware that it critically lacks lateral support. Its traction is too much for badminton and may lead to injury. Imagine lunging forward fast to retrieve a net drop, if you plant your front foot and it is "stuck" (without any sliding), the momentum have to be absorbed by either your knee or ankle. In my case, my ankle caved, luckily my ankle was strong enough to withstand the twist.

    WT6 has thick cushion by design, however that lowers lateral stability. It proves to be the case, and WT6 somehow is very prone to ankle twist when moving sideways. On the first day of test wear, I twisted my ankle twice albeit not serious due to ample ankle strength. I'll suggest to shy away from WT6 if you're looking for a pair of badminton shoes.

    Can't go wrong with a mizuno volleyball shoe. I wear these with active ankles, and they fit great. Play for a couple weeks and they will mold to your foot. Best grip around, lightweight. Can't say enough great things about this shoe. Durable too!

    i decided to buy a matching pair for my boyfriend, since his birthday was fast approaching, and he's a volleyball player as well. He loved it, from the moment he opened the box. Perfect fit!

    Well, I managed to play only once, but feelings are great. Very good connection with the ground, not slipy at all.
    But I'm really not satisfied with packaging, which was not compact.

    First things first, I've never owned a pair of volleyball shoes before this one, so I've got nothing to compare them too. Also, I play low-power intermediate open gym volleyball, so I don't stress the shoes out to the max-hardcore, either.

    Before this pair of shoes, I've been playing with some Nike Tennis shoes that actually worked really well for me. They were getting worn down though, so I'm going to use them strictly for tennis (which I play a lot less of).

    This pair was a little bit tight when I first got them, but after wearing them for a couple of hours without really putting much stress on them, I broke into them pretty well and they were ready on game-day. The traction is pretty solid, though I still slide every now and then and you hear a loud screech on the gym floor, but it's still pretty decent. The shoes are pretty light, too, so you don't feel like you're being weighed down when you jump to hit.

    The only thing I can't comment on, is durability. I've only used them for about three sessions (about two hours each), and they seem like they've still got a ways to go before wearing down, but only time will tell how long they'll really last.
