The Asics GEL-Domain 2 Women's Volleyball Shoes are the second generation of the popular GEL-Domain line of Volleyball Shoes from Asics and feature a brand new look for the 2010 season. The GEL-Domain 2 provides volleyball players and court enthusiasts with the ultimate combination of responsive cushioning and medial/lateral stability. The GEL-Domain 2 is lighter than the previous-generation GEL-Domain, yet retains all the structural integrity and comfort. The forefoot and rearfoot both contain Asics' unique GEL Cushioning System, which provides for improved cushioning and shock absorption during the impact phase as well as toe-off phase. This allows for movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
Asics also designed the GEL-Domain 2 Women's Volleyball Shoes with their P.H.F. or Personal Heel Feet technology to provide for a customized fit that improves comfort over time. P.H.F. provides 2 layers of memory foam that line the collar of the shoe, which mold to the athlete's heel, creating a personalized fit. The GEL-Domain 2 also features an advanced RhynoSkin upper that provides an abrasion and tear-resistant synethetic leather to help increase the durability of the upper. This allows the GEL-Domain 2 to last much longer than ever before.
Asics has also included a special NC Rubber Outsole to the Women's GEL-Domain 2, drastically increasing traction. NC Rubber is a rubber compound that contains more natural rubber content than traditional solid rubber, which provides for enhanced traction on the court. NC Rubber is a must-have for active volleyball players that make quick cuts and lateral movements. These volleyball shoes also feature an advanced SpEVA Midsole Material that improves the bounce back characteristics and decreases midsole breakdown, and provides volleyball players with a comfortable, solid base.
Finally, Asics has included a removable sockliner that can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic or other insert. Its specially-designed Trusstic System also helps to reduce the weight of the sole without sacrificing the structural integrity of the shoe, providing volleyball players with a lightweight, high-performance fit.
The GEL-Domain 2 continues to be one of the most popular shoe on the market thanks to its unique combination of cushioning, traction and stability.
