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.

          Comments about Asics GEL-Volley Lyte Men's Volleyball Shoes:

          Best volleyball shoes I have used in 30 years of playing. I play competitively or practice several times per week. I generally use Asics because I have a somewhat narrow foot. This is by far my favorite of their shoes. The full volleyball shoes are too heavy and stiff for me. The running shoe platform types do not provide enough support, particularly for forward motion. For me, this shoe is a perfect blend between the two styles of shoes. I liked them so much I bought a second pair in case they get phased out.

              Good grip on wood floor - I use them for racquetball eventhough they're for volleyball. I prefer the toe leather to wrap up over the toe (and these don't). So I will wait to see if my my big toe begins popping up through shoe fabric. Very light shoe.

              I hadn't played competitive indoor volleyball since my sophomore year of high school in 2000. So when I ordered the Asics GEL Volley-Lytes, I wasn't sure what expect. Having narrow feet, they started out a little snug, but after about 6 hours of court time, they broke in nicely. For a 5'7" guy, I feel like I've been jumping out of the gym and on a court that I normally slid around on, they grip the floor beautifully.

                    the shoes are great for colleyball, lifting and running. when buying these shoes i was not sure if it was capable of the following but i was wrong. the only problem with the shoe was the back and arch were very uncomfortable during the first week but im sure that was due to the shoes being new.

                        I now use these shoes every time I play. I play 4-6 hours a week, 2 hours at a time in pretty competitive play. These shoes look good and really let me move around the court, cutting, jumping and changing direction quickly and smoothly.

                        I have really flat feet and the arch support in these shoes are pretty average BUT I really don't experience any issues. I love the forefoot and rearfoot support.

                        I really like these shoes!

                            I use for racquetball. Shoe has great grip and is very comfortable. First time I've bought Asics. Will buy again.

                                  Great shoe. I have wore Asics volleyball shoes for close to 20 years, and these are the best yet.

                                  I purchased these shoes looking for a replacement for my dying Gel Sensei 2, and I didn't want to pay a mint for the new Sensei 3. These shoes are lightweight, but are less comfortable and supportive than the Sensei 2. The upper collar is quite stiff and unforgiving and low/wide, and the tongue is rather short compared to other volleyball shoes, so I don't feel like there's much support around the lower part of the ankle. Lateral stability is just ok. Frankly I'm torn as to whether it would have been better to get the Sensei 3.
