Thank you for your feedback.
I was worried about buying the least expensive pair but they are great!
Ordered this for my husband, and so far they have been the best quality volleyball shoes I have ever gotten him.
Anyway, the shoes fit great, are very comfy and with a good grip.

Product Description

This entry-level model features a full-length Gum Rubber Outsole for excellent traction on the court. Rearfoot GEL? Cushioning System provides enhanced cushioning - while the combination synthetic leather and mesh upper provides breathability and comfort. A great value for the multi-court player.

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.

    Bought the shoe for racquetball. I find most of the mid to high end racquetball shoes to be too stiff and too heavy The shoe is very light and flexible with semi-curved last. It has solid lateral support with the side support integrated into lacing with no ridges or pressure points. Good fit around the heel but a wide toe box. Lacing pulls tight over the arch without squeezing the toes.The shoe provides a good combination of grip and cushioning. One small feature I really appreciate is the toe cap. That is one of the first places to wear through for me. One minor improvement I would suggest is to integrate the tongue into the upper part way up from the toe to prevent it shifting. Good value. I would definitely buy another pair.

    No doubt, Yonex makes best Shoes for badminton. Even though the Yonex models offer excellent mobility for badminton, it hurts the knees and foot after 2 hours of badminton. So, I was looking for a shoe with better protection for knees and foot. This shoe is excellent and provides almost as mobility as Yonex at half the cost,

    My game is improved as it hurts less. I recommend this for any beginner to advanced players. May be not for the professionals.

    4 star as they are not made specifically for badminton and ASICS do not publish any extensive test results as Yonex.

    If you play a sport that requires frequent and hard lateral cuts, I would look to move up to the ASICS Gel Rocket 6 or 7 series. I previously used the Gel Rocket 6. Although these are a bit lighter, the tradeoff is they definitely do not have as much lateral support as the Gel Rocket 6. Compare the construction of the shoes just above the sole on the sides and you will see the obvious difference. The Gel Rocket series not only uses more material, the material is more substantial in weight.

    I find that these are better for casual wear as opposed to athletic play. Hard lateral moves cause your foot to "fall off the edge" of the sole, if you know what I mean. I'm also very picky about my shoes so keep that in mind.

    This may be 4th or 5th pair I have bought of the same type. I weight above normal, and heavy built(not obese). I play badminton and tennis actively and do wear these shoes on indoor court as well as outdoor. The gum rubber sole is soft enough to grip the wooded floor of a badminton court just right. And on tennis hard courts, it's durable enough to withstand the abrasion caused by the sudden stop-starts and turns.

    I have also used it for normal walking/running, but for distance running, I'd recommend using other shoes designed for the purpose.
    I'd also caution against using it on grass or clay surfaces.

    I wore the Rocket 7's for years and loved them for racquetball and weightlifting, but eventually they wore out. I bought these as a replacement.

    The shoe is a bit on the wide side, which is perfect for me as I have fairly wide feet. They provide great arch support for such a flat shoe. The thin sole is perfect for weightlifting, which is what I use them for mostly, but they also grip incredibly well for racquetball (or I suspect any sport played on a wooden court). I can't comment on the lateral grip on them compared to the Rocket 7's, because I wear ASO ankle braces when playing racquetball and they provide all the lateral support I need. I will say though that the wide nature of the sole seems to keep my feet planted better than most, which is why I originally chose this brand and type of shoe, to reduce the risk of ankle sprains.

    Good shoes. I use it to play tennis, I found under the tennis category. For some reason it didn't say volleyball when I first bought it. What's the difference? Is it only because the sole has no color on it? It looks just like the tennis one minus the colors.
    Anyway, the shoes fit great, are very comfy and with a good grip. Played a couple of times so far and I am happy with my purchase.

    Not the right fit for my wide foot (returned them). The shoes are very light weight and the decorative lines on the sides appear to be painted on or a very cheap stencil. While they do have some good reviews they just didn't do the job for me, the only reason I tried them was for Amazon's great return policy...thanks you Amazon.
