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 walk a few miles a week so got fitted for an excellent pair of walking shoes. But my feet hurt within 5 minutes of starting Zumba class, so I bought a pair of cross trainers, and the same thing happened. Both of my Zumba instructors recommended I try a Zumba brand shoe but they are too expensive for my taste. I did some googling and figured out Zumba shoes are "court" shoes with a bit wider toe space and more sole support around the toe as compared to a walking shoe or cross trainer. So I found these and picked a color that was inexpensive for me to experiment with!
The first time I wore these walking around my neighborhood I got shin splints but my feet weren't sore or out of sorts. The real magic has been twice-weekly Zumba class where my feet no longer hurt at all! My toe base feels supported through all the cha-cha and salsa moves, no weird rubbing or chafing anywhere. They aren't especially "airy" like my walking shoes - so my feet do sweat, but I also paid four times more for the walking shoes and expect them to perform better in that area.
So I can only speak to these shoes for Zumba - and they do great. I've worn them to 6 classes and they are making a huge difference for me!
The shoes do keep their grip, and my feet don't overheat, but the bottom line is if you are looking to play more than occasional, low-intensity volleyball, invest in a better shoe.
