The Asics GEL-Volleycross 2 Men's Volleyball Shoes are a fresh update for 2010 to the popular GEL-Volleycross line of volleyball shoes from Asics. The original GEL-Volleycross managed to combine the best features of a running shoe, with the stability and comfort of a volleyball shoe, taking the volleyball world by storm and creating one of the most popular volleyball shoes on the market. Known for its ability to allow volleyball players to make quick cuts and lateral movements, the Men's GEL-Volleycross 2 brings a fresh design to the line while also trimming the color options to three attractive colors.
The GEL-Volleycross 2 Men's Volleyball Shoes continue to weigh in at an extremely light weight - just 9.4 ounces. Volleyball players who require a lightweight shoe to remain mobile will love the GEL-Volleycross 2 for its ability to provide superior cushioning and support in such a lightweight package. The rearfoot and forefoot of the GEL-Volleycross 2 features Asics' GEL Cushioning system, which helps attenuate shock during the impact and toe-off phases and allows movement in multiple planes and directions as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. As if this wasn't enough, Asics has thrown in a special NC Rubber Outsole, a new compound containing more natural rubber content than traditional solid rubber, which provides volleyball players with enhanced traction on the court. The NC Rubber Outsole, combined with the GEL Cushioning System enables players to make extremely quick movements without losing traction or support.
The Men's GEL-Volleycross 2 also features an asymmetrical lacing design that helps reduce potential for irritation and provides improved comfort and fit. They also make use of Asics P.H.F. or Personal Heel Fit technology for superior comfort and performance. P.H.F. features 2 layers of memory foam that line the collar of the shoe and mold to the athlete's foot, creating a personalized fit every time.
Finally, the GEL-Volleycross 2 Men's Volleyball Shoes feature an extremely light Solyte Midsole Material, a lighter weight midsole compound than standard EVA and SpEVA used in other Asics Volleyball Shoes. This allows the shoe to remain extremely light without compromising the cushioning and durability. The lightweight nature of the shoes, combined with the special rubber outsole and GEL Cushioning System are sure to make the GEL-Volleycross 2 a great choice for volleyball players all across the country.
