The Asics GEL-Volley Elite Women's Volleyball Shoes is an elite new women's volleyball shoe from Asics that combines all of Asics' performance technologies to create their signature model. The GEL-Volley Elite is Asics' top model in their speed/cushioning category.
The GEL-Volley Elite features Asics I.G.S. or Impact Guidance System which consists of linked components to help enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. This allows for quicker cuts and movement on the court. The GEL-Volley Elite Women's Volleyball Shoes utilize a synthetic leather and mesh upper for ultimate breathability, increasing comfort and providing an incredibly lightweight foundation for superior performance. These elite volleyball shoes also feature an asymmetrical lacing design that prevents irritation and helps provide improved comfort and fit.
The Asics Women's GEL-Volley Elite also features an open mesh upper that provides excellent comfort and breathability, as well as an SpEVA 55 midsole that helps prevent midsole breakdown and improve bounce-back characteristics for superior cushioning and performance in the midsole area. The removable sockliner provides for the use of medical orthotics.
The Asics GEL-Volley Elite Women's Volleyball Shoes also feature Asics' popular GEL Cushioning System in the forefoot and rearfoot for superior cushioning and performance. The GEL Cushioning System attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. This provides an incredibly comfortable cushion for the foot that absorbs impact on the court and is ideal for players who spend most of their time in the air.
Asics has also included their P.H.F. or Personal Heel Fit technology to provide superior comfort and durability in the heel and collar area. P.H.F. features 2 layers of memory foam that line the collar and mold to the athletes heel, creating a comfortable and personalized fit. Asics' Trusstic System technology also helps reduce the weight of the shoe while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe. Weighing in at just 12.4 ounces, the GEL-Volley Elite features the luxury of superior cushioning without all the bulk.
The Asics GEL-Volley Elite also features advanced technologies never before seen in a volleyball shoe. The Asics WET GRIP Outsole is a unique technology that features an outsole made from a special blend of organic and non-organic components and is designed to enhance traction even on wet surfaces. This provides a solid base for volleyball players on court surfaces and allows for quick cuts and movements without losing traction. In addition to WET GRIP, Asics has also included their NC Rubber Outsole technology for superior traction. NC Rubber contains more natural rubber content than traditional solid rubber, resulting in enhanced traction on court systems.
The Asics GEL-Volley Elite is Asics' top-of-the-line Volleyball shoe for 2011 and should make a big splash in 2011.
