Thank you for your feedback.
It's comfortable, fits perfectly, and provides support unlike my running shoes.
This was my first pair and I was happily surprised at how comfortable and light they felt.
They grip better than any other hard court shoe I've tried, and the breather vents in the sole actually work.

    I played college volleyball and was team captain of our varsity team. I've used Asics, Adidas and Mizuno shoes in the past and by far Mizunos are the best. Currently, I have 5 pairs of Mizuno volleyball shoes and was torn between getting this and Tornado 6. I bought the Mizuno Tornado 4 a couple of years ago but was attracted by the price of Wave Lightning 7, Tornado 6 was a little more expensive. I just got it from the mail today and boy was I surprised! It has better cushioning than my Tornado 4 and seems to morph with your feet. The sole design performs like Air Max technology but this pair is so much lighter.

    One of the things I also considered this over Tornado 6 was the weight, it is about 4 ounces lighter. The only minor concern that I have is that it seems Mizuno used softer materials and your first impression is that they will tear a little easier. I am not sure, it's just an observation but judging by my past Mizunos I just can't break them.

    Get this over Tornado 6!

    I've been looking for a new racquetball shoe for awhile. I've been rotating between Ashway's, Adidas, and New Balance. All fine. I ordered the Hi-Tec S750 because of its design technology. It was so uncomfortable I sent it back immediately.

    I was a little worried about exchanging for the Wave Lighting 7 because of its lack of lateral support. Racquetball and volleyball are indeed different animals. However, I can't even begin to tell you how pleased I am with this shoe.

    First off its the most comfortable thing I've ever put on my feet. My custom orthotics went in with no problems and in no way hindered the shoe's performance. These babies are light yet have tremendous cushioning. My knee pain went away the first week I played in them.

    They grip better than any other hard court shoe I've tried, and the breather vents in the sole actually work.

    As for the lack of lateral support, I haven't noticed it once and I do a lot of running and diving.

    Just a great, great shoe, maybe a little ugly but that's not a concern when they perform this well.

    Mizuno is by far the best 'volleyball' shoes ive purchased. Its pricy but its worth it..the performance it comes with it along with improved traction and flexibility is great and yes of course its lighter than regular volleyball shoes. If your a constant volleyball player, i recommend these shoes. Also, the shipping was fast and it arrived as advertised. Great shoes..excellent buy!!!...

    I've been playing volleyball for over 20 years, competitively in my early years and now it's just for fun and not as competitive. I've had many different volleyball shoes but never Mizunos. This was my first pair and I was happily surprised at how comfortable and light they felt. I was skeptical when they arrived because they looked very narrow and I have wide feet but after playing with them for 2 hours, my feet didn't feel sore or have any pain. I thought that was pretty good for a new set of shoes. I didn't really have to work them in. They also had very good grip on the court. I felt I was able to move better because of the grip and the lightness of the shoe.

    Also, I wear ankle braces on both feet and I didn't have any problems wearing them with these shoes. At my age, I can't take the pain of rolling my ankle any more. ;)

    Use shoes for Squash. Excellent shoe light, sturdy, good traction. I have wide feet but the shoe fit great. I was told the mizuno brand come 1/2 size small. So I ordered size 10 instead of 9-1/2". It fit perfect.

    I've gone through a lot of volleyball shoes, and these are far and away my favorite. Prior to this I had gone through a few ASICS models. The Gel Sensei 2 was the last notable shoe I had. It was durable, but the shoe weighed a lot, and they didn't breathe very well at all. The Mizunos though are fantastic! They are super light and well ventilated. They run a little wider than the ASICS, so I'm not coming home with my feet all torn up after a few hours of play. People say that the Tornado line is the heavier and more durable shoe, but I'm pretty happy with these as long as they hold up for awhile.

    I had a pair of the Lightning Wave 3 before these and loved those, but these new shoes fit better, are more comfortable and work better with my ankle braces (I play Middle Blocker so people tend to come under more on me than other hitters).

    I would definitely recommend these shoes to other players.

    This shoe gives a lot of support. If you are on the court as much as I am (which is 3-4 days a week), your ankles need support. I found them to be solid while still giving a little. Definitely on my favorite court shoe short list. Only thing to note, the width runs a bit tight (though it did stretch a bit once I wore them). If you have wide feet, make sure to get a wide width.
