                  I went from 110 dollar Mizunos to these. These feel a little heavier, and perhaps too much cushioning. I think they are a great deal for around 50 bucks, I wore out my last pair on mizunos pretty quick.

                  Asics fit me really well and these are the cheapest court shoe for Asics. I find no matter how much I spend on a shoe they don't last that long...so I might as figure not spend a lot of money.

                                        Use this for my league play & for tournaments I go to. I had the 3rd Generation and needed a new pair and I trusted in Asics to keep the same quality and design I like and believe in.

                                            Shoes work are lightweight which helps playing volleyball. They are comfortable and I would recommend them to others.
