Details
The Asics GEL-Volley Lyte Men's Volleyball Shoes are a brand new, lightweight men's volleyball shoe for 2010 that features advanced technologies designed to decrease weight while retaining stability. The GEL-Volley Lyte Men's Volleyball Shoes weigh in at around 11 ounces, and feature an advanced exoskeletal upper design that provides lightweight medial-lateral support for long rallies. The GEL-Voiley Lyte also features Asics' GEL Cushioning System in the forefoot and rearfoot, which attenuates shock during the impact and toe-off phases, allowing for movement in multiple plains and offering improved cushioning and support.

The GEL-Volley Lyte maintains its light weight thanks to its Exoskeletal Asics logo stripes, which help provide reinforcement and support to the upper while enhancing breathability. The open mesh upper also provides for increased breathability, comfort and performance, by helping to quickly dissipate heat and bring in cooler outside air. The Men's GEL-Volley Lyte also features an advanced Trusstic System, which helps reduce the weight of the shoe while retaining the structural integrity and strength of the shoe. The NC Rubber Outsole on the GEL-Volley Lyte provides for ultimate traction on the court, thanks to its unique compound which contains more natural rubber content than traditional rubber.

The Asics GEL-Volley Lyte also features Asics Personal Heel Fit technology located in the heel. Personal Heel Fit provides 2 layers of memory foam in the collar, which molds to the foot and create an incredibly personalized fit. Its Solyte midsole offers a much lighter weight than traditional EVA and SpEVA midsoles, increasing comfort and performance.

              I bought these shoes for volleyball and they work great. Nice grip and I like the gel support.
              The only bad thing is that I couldn't decide between red or black. :P

                  Solid all around volleyball shoe that performs well. Recommended and would buy again. Works well, though I was hoping volleyball shoes would absorb more shock than my basketball shoes but they seem about the same. They are light and have good control for competitive volleyball in gym 3 times per week.

                    I bought these a half size big because of only one width available and was still a bit narrow.
                    That is the only negative I have to share about these shoes.

                        This shoe lasted a long time! Probably my second favorite shoe of Asics that I have had. My Favorite was the Asics Gel Domain. I could Jump higher in those shoes due to the grip and lightness then I could in any basketball shoes I have had. Great shoe!

                              I have only used these shoes for about a month now but I play racquetball 3 times a week and so far they are great!. I was impressed that as soon as I put them on they felt very comfortable. No "breaking in time" as with other shoes. Would highly recommend these shoes.

                                  I play team handball as a wing player, which means I have to be the fastest and most agile player on the court. These shoes are very lightweight and provide the stability needed to make hard cuts. The only problem I had with them was the shoe getting looser as I played. However this was the first time I wore the shoes, so that is probably due to them breaking in.

                                  I'm flat footed and I use this with aftermarket insoles (Sole) for arch support.

                                  The only downside to this is that these are a bit more narrow than Gel Rocket IV's I've been using. The shoes felt too tight for a week or two, but after that no problems. My foot is on the wide side.

                                  These shoes are nice, and they seem to be more durable than the Gel Rocket's, and about the same for cushioning. I find the Gel Rocket IV's more comfortable, but I didn't like the Gel Rocket V's when I tried them on.

                                  Overall, this is a good shoe for the price, but I'll be looking at higher end shoes next.

                                    My feet are relatively wide and this shoe was constricting (as other shoes do). However, after 2-3 uses of break-in, they are snug and very comfortable. Great buy!

                                            I'm a squash player looking for a lightweight shoe with good traction, and this shoe has so far fit the bill nicely. It fits comfortably and the only con so far, which i've experienced with almost all other indoor shoes thus far, is that the sole gets really hot (not warm) when one changes direction very often during a more intense rally. Not sure about the durability of the shoe yet, since i've had it for only a few weeks. Its holding up pretty well and performs satisfactorily.
