Details
The Asics GEL-Rocket 5 Women's Volleyball Shoes are the 5th generation of the popular GEL-Rocket Women's Volleyball Shoes by Asics and feature a fresh, new look for 2010 while retaining all of the features that make this one of the most popular volleyball shoes on the market. For the past 5 seasons, Asics has continually improved the GEL-Rocket line by decreasing the weight of the shoe while retaining the structural integrity and cushioning properties volleyball players have come to depend on. The GEL-Rocket 5 continues the tradition by combining the traction of gum rubber with the lightweight support, which Asics is known for. The new GEL-Rocket 5 features the GEL Cushioning System found in the forefoot, which helps attenuate shock during impact phase and provides ultimate cushioning and support.

Asics has also included a Trusstic System found in the midsole, which helps reduce the weight of the sole while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe. This allows the GEL-Rocket 5 to remain extremely lightweight, perfect for active volleyball players who don't want to be weighed down. The GEL-Rocket 5 is even lighter than last year's model, continuing Asics' tradition of providing superior products year after year.

These women's volleyball shoes also include a removable sockliner that allows volleyball players to utilize medical orthotics or other types of inserts.

        I always buy Asics running shoes, and also tennis shoes, and tried the volleyall shoes on the advice of a friend who swears by them. This is my 3rd pair of volleyball shoes (bought same shoe each time). This shoe is comfortable and seem to hold up as well as any tennis shoe I have had for tennis. I use them for tennis on hard courts several times a week, as well as for a daily shoe. The price was GREAT! Good value for sure!! I will keep buying this shoe and recommending them to others.

              I had gotten these shoes for my daughter, and she was initially disappointed, as we thought they ran small. After visiting a shoe store, her foot size is now a 12.5 - we sent back to request the men's 11.5. Overall sharp looking and will have to review again soon.

                      My daughter used this shoe for middle school volleyball (two seasons)and club vball (one season). It worked well until she got bigger and began playing more and longer - after the day long tournaments and two day tournaments of club ball, her feet and knees were always sore. We are looking now for a shoe with more cushioning and support for the longer tournaments. This shoe is fine for beginning/junior players as an entry level shoe.

                                      These shoes are great for the price. If you are looking for higher athlete shoes these are not it. These are intended for Advance high school and lower. College need look somewhere else.

                                              The shoes were good quality for the price my girls are in select volleball and I was not ready to spend a ton of money right now for volleyball shoes. These were just right.

                                                  I am an adult volleyball player who plays both all day tournaments as well as weekly leagues. These shoes are comfortable to wear all day. And I'm a middle hitter, so lots of jumping! Very light, very comfortable, great price.
