Comments about Asics GEL-Rocket 5 Men's Volleyball Shoes:

Great shoes, but seem like they don't last that long. The grip is worn out and I didn't have it longer than a year. They work great in the beginning but dies out fast. Now I have to wet it every single time to keep traction on them.

              Pretty solid shoe. I wore a previous ASICS model of the same shoe for 6 years before. Its always worked out and been reliable, so I decided to get ASICS again. So far, its feels exactly the same as before. Good grip, lightweight.

                  I've now bought two pairs of these shoes, and my current pair is on it's last legs. These shoes work great until they begin to wear out, which is relatively quickly. Until then however, they provide plenty of traction on a decent court, good support, fit well, and don't look bad, either. They are also some of the cheapest volleyball shoes you can buy, so for the price, they perform admirably.

                    Good shoe for the price, but you can't expect the same quality of a hundred dollar shoe. They took a while to break in, and the toe support tore after a few years.

                          Great squash shoe. We've bought them in multiple sizes and all are great.

                            I used these shoes to play badminton, and it slides slightly. It isn't the most stylish pair of shoes, but it works. I would rather buy another pair of shoes next time.
