Product Description

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.

    Size: 10.5 D(M) USColor: Navy/Lime/Silver Verified Purchase
    I received these, wore them for two hours around the house, and then played volleyball for two hours in them. I used to play in NB Minimus Cross-Trainers. I have nothing bad to say about the NB's but obviously they're not made for volleyball. They are ultra light which I loved. I got these, reluctant because they weighed more, but was presently surprised. The .001" I lost in vertical was made up from the increased sole size. The support was fantastic. As you could imagine, my foot was really bothering me playing in the NBs. The pain was resonating up my leg to the point where it felt like I had shin splints. At that point I decided to make a change. I remembered what it was like to get actual tennis shoes to play tennis in so I thought I would give actual volleyball shoes a try. Wow! Two hours of play and very little pain in my foot (mainly because I didn't give it enough time). I would highly recommend these. They are light for volleyball shoes, somewhat stylish, and compared to cross-trainers, they are a must have for an avid volleyball player. Size seemed to be spot on. I wear a 10.5 in all my sport shoes and these 10.5's fitted perfectly. Again, if you're on the fence about getting volleyball shoes, take the plunge.

    I am 45 and started insanity last summer, using a pair of crosstrainers from another company. I ached all the time in my knees and back, so I considered giving up. But I started to think about the shoes I was using and came to the conclusion that CT's are useless for just about anything other than being a shoe to wear. What I mean is that their is not a shoe that can do it all, it has its limitations. So I figured a shoe for a sport that involves alot of lateral movement and jumping would be perfect for Insanity.
    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.

    I do P90x (all variants) regularly and needed some shoes for all of the Plyo workouts. I read a bunch of reviews of cross trainers but none really seemed like they would be perfect. Then I started thinking after I saw these and volleyball shoes made perfect sense. After using them for two Plyo workouts I can say they are awesome. They feel great and are just snug enough. They absorb the impacts from jumping better than any other cross training shoes I've had and are very good during lateral movements.
    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.

    Size: 8 D(M) USColor: Navy/Lime/Silver Verified Purchase
    Bought these after using
    - Asics Gel Domain 2 and
    - Asics Gel Resolution
    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.

    The only volleyball shoes i truly love. Light and fast with good grip. What they lack in cushon they make up for in solid accurate responsiveness. These things are like high performance tires, light fast and firm. Not big slow, doughy, cushy truck tires.

    I bought these for squash. They are super light weight but a bit wide (I have a narrow foot) and run a 1/2 size big so order half size smaller. I regularly wear 11's in asics so I ordered an 11 but they felt like 11.5s. Need to send back and reorder for 10.5.

    I bought this for my husband who just recently started playing recreational volley ball. Bought it based on the reviews. He loves it. Says, it sure makes a difference playing with this shoe vs. his regular sneakers. His knees/legs don't hurt as it used to - after the practices he says. Thank you ASICS for making it and thank you Amazon for making it easy to buy it. It arrived in two days and is a perfect fit.
