    I currently own a pair of Mizuno wave lightning 6. Liking my existing shoes I ordered a new pair of RX2s in the same size and they did not fit the same way. After inspecting the shows side by side, the new shoes are 3/8 narrower and slightly longer in a size 14. Unfortunately I needed to return and am going to give the Aisics a try, hopefully they are shaped more like a real foot.

    I play 4-6hrs of volleyball a week and this year I thought I'd try a pair of actual volleyball shoes. These shoes were highly touted so I decided to give them a shot even though they're pricey.

    My first pair came and when I put them on the elastic that attaches to the tongue on my right shoe broke some of the threading so I sent them back for another pair.

    My 2nd pair has been fine durability wise but these shoes are really uncomfortable. I understand that they are supposed to be stiff to provide lateral support but what I found is that the stiffness not only hurts my feet but it makes me move slower. They also don't have much support for jumping.

    I've been hoping that they'd get better once they're broken in but at this point but after a few games I always end up taking them off and switching back to my Nike Air Max 2013's that I've been playing in since last year. The Nike's are heavier but they are much more comfortable and are great for jumping.

    So far I've racked up around 12hrs of playing time in these and I still don't like them. If these were ~$50-60 I wouldn't complain but considering they were over $110 I'm not very happy.

    I wore these during a three hour practice session and towards the end, i noticed a very very sharp pain in my right pinky toe. Turns out the shoe is just a tad too narrow, which wouldn't be a deal breaker except that where the tongue meets the outside layer, there is a piece of plastic or rough material that completely digs into my toe and cuts it.

    The cushioning i good, the shoes are light, but in order to wear them, I have to put a bandage on my toe every time. Would not buy again

    Bought for my son who plays JV volleyball. Fit is spot on. The shoe is best at stability... holds the floor well and change of direction feels confident. Not a soft shoe, so don't look for shock absorption... decent, but not a basketball shoe. Has stiff mid-ridge underside to help provide lift for fast re-action/jumping.
    I have had a few similar adult sized Mizunos (a few years older) and would not go to another sneaker for volleyball. Tried Asics, New Balance, Nike, etc. Mizuno seems to be the only true supplier of dedicated volleyball sneakers.

    Racquetball use … super light, right fit. I need stability control to preclude ankle rollover and was uncertain these would meet the criteria, but they do.

    Most pro comments:
    Size fits ... I can count on the fit of New Balance, Asics, Saucony, and Mizuno. I can’t wear Nike.
    Super ultra light weight

    No cons …

    I play volleyball regularly indoors so come rain or shine or snow, we're indoors in hard wooden floors playing volleyball.

    I used generic tennis shoes or sneakers before but I had no idea how useful a volleyball shoe would be. This shoe is light, feels great to jump and land in and is very comfortable.

    It does fit smaller than expected though, so you might want to get 1/2 a size bigger. I'm sticking with the size I got though. They just are so comfortable, I didn't feel like returning them for another pair.

    These aren't bad shoes, and they work pretty well for the intermediate player that I am. Only 2 things that bug me about them:

    1) There are these strap-web thing on the tongue of the shoe that has ripped when simply trying to put them on...poor design, but doesn't ruin shoe or fit

    2) After a long day in them, my shins have become sore. I've played in all day tournaments before in old running shoes and didn't have this problem. I think the support is lacking a bit. Good traction though.
