In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.

I looked at tons of basketball shoes, but they really are hard to find in a low top, so I moved my search into volleyball shoes and am I glad I did. I wore these only inside my home for the sole purpose of completing the whole rigorous regime of Insanity. I never once had the knee pain, my back soreness went away and I kept pushing play.
I loved the gum soul for tractionand the lateral support the shoe gave. The cushioning was very adequate in the shoe and it felt wonderful to work out in these. I will say I have owned Asics before in the past and only used their running shoes. I wear 10 & 10.5 in their shoes in the past, most recently I bought a 10.5 running shoe, so I ordered that size in this shoe. I do think it ran a bit larger than what my foot needed but I felt that the 10 may have been to short and with all the jumping involved I was hesitant to switch them out. I think the last Asics uses is just not in tune with MY foot, 10.5 too big & 10 too small .
Overall I love the shoe and would definitely recommend to anyone doing any plyometric training. I always thought it was odd that the majority of people feel like running shoes are the best choice for a plyometric exercise program, when in essence it is quite the opposite.
Like many other reviewers stated a half size under what you normally wear should fit perfectly. It did for me. I recommend these to anyone looking for a great all around training shoe and they are spot on for jump training.

for a while, both of which had been pretty decent buys and are very popular with the squash and tennis crowd.
These are a lot lighter than the other two. The top is also a lot more flexible which may or may not be to the liking of some people. It makes the shoe more breathable but also takes a little bit away from stability of the foot in the shoe as there is more give during vigorous movement.
The base of the shoe/grip with the wooden court surface is great and I have had no problem with slipping etc on squash courts. Would definitely recommend the product.
