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.

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

AS ALWAYS, ASICS MAKES A QUALITY PRODUCT. THE ONLY ISSUE IS JUST AFTER 3 WEEKS OF WEARING, THE TOE IS BEING WORN DOWN DUE TO A SERVING MOTION MADE. SOME VBALL SHOES ADD EXTRA PROTECTION AGAINST THIS...THIS SHOE DOES NOT. WOULD NOT PREVENT ME FROM BUYING AGAIN THOUGH.

              I use to play vball in high school, college and a local league and haven't played serious vball now for about 22 years. Started back up and need some shoes. These were very comfortable and light. They provided more support than what I was use to in the past. They were just a tad narrow for me. I've always been an Asics (Tigers way back when)footwear fan and still am.
