Spike the ball with authority in the Asics Gel-Rocket volleyball shoes. These shoes feature an open mesh upper with supportive overlays.

The non-marking gum rubber outsole is specifically designed for indoor court use.
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.

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.
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.
They feel very comfortable though and I am happy with the purchase. I am docking 1 star due to the fact that Asics does not make a wide version of any volleyball shoe as they do in many of their running shoes. Since they no longer sell anything for badminton, racquetball, squash etc, you would think they could at least come out with one model of volleyball shoe in a wide?
******************This part is about fulfillment and not the shoe itself - You may have this issue or may not*********************
I would also like to report what I consider to be a major problem. I bought this shoe and it said it was sold by Amazon.com LLC and said that it qualified for prime shipping. This product obviously was not direct from Amazon as it was shipped Fed Ex instead of UPS.
Product was expected on Monday and did not show up. No door tag.
Tuesday I received a fed ex door tag saying that they had tried final delivery and I would have to pick up the package. (typically only happens after 3rd delivery).
I don't really know who this issue is with. Was it a lazy fed ex delivery person who probably never showed up until Tuesday and didn't feel like coming back? Was it the fact that it was most likely fulfilled by a 3rd party who is supposed to use UPS but is cutting rates by using Fed Ex? Was it Amazon for misrepresenting who was selling me the product and guaranteeing 2 day delivery via UPS (which will be left at the door) and not informing me that it was coming Fed Ex? Not sure. I did not include this part of the order experience in my rating but am very dissatisfied with how this was fulfilled.
