Details
The Asics GEL-Rocket 5 Men's Volleyball Shoes are the fifth generation of the popular GEL-Rocket line of Men’s Volleyball Shoes by Asics and feature a fresh look with new colors as well as a lighter weight for the 2010 season.

Featuring Asics’ GEL Cushioning System in the forefoot, the GEL-Rocket 5 Volleyball Shoes provide players with the ultimate in shock absorption and impact cushioning.

This allows the GEL-Rocket 5 to remain extremely lightweight at only 11 ounces, and also continues to provide superior support and structure for active volleyball players.

The GEL-Rocket 5 also features a removable sockliner that can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic or ankle braces as well as Asics' unique gum rubber located on the outsole, providing increased traction and stability on court surfaces. The GEL-Rocket 5 Men's Volleyball Shoes continues the legacy of past GEL-Rocket models, providing athletes with ultimate performance at a reasonable price.

                          Good shoes, they don't have the best grip on the planet, but they do the job. They look great and fit to size. They are pretty comfortable, I have been playing with them for about a month and I never got any blisters or sores on my feet. So, overall good shoes.

                              I'm an outside hitter for my volleyball team. This was a great buy that has made the game easier on my knees.

                                  Still new, but have found the shoes work well. Little tight on my pinky toe. Nothing too bad, need to wear them in.
