We were able to get this sneaker at a better price point on Amazon, although it’s advertised as a volleyball shoe, it’s the same shoe that is labeled as a suggested shoe to use for indoor field hockey.
If my review was useful, please consider hitting the “helpful” button; thanks.
1 star rating is because Asics customer service said they do not make women's volleyball or tennis shoes in a "wide" width. I tried a size 7 since I usually wear 6.5 but ASICs shoes toe boxes seem much narrower now so the 6.5 did not fit.
She suggested trying a Men's size 5, but Asics doesn't make volleyball (pickleball) or tennis shoes in a size 5 mens either.
I know I am not the only one feeling constricted in the toe box. FOR ASICS MANAGEMENT - PLEASE START MAKING SHOES THAT FIT ALL SIZES OF WOMEN !! AND PLEASE START MAKING SHORTS AND SHIRTS WITH DEEP WIDE POCKETS FOR WOMEN. LOTS OF US PLAY PICKLEBALL & TENNIS AND WE NEED SHORTS THAT ARE FUNCTIONAL! thanks.
