Details
The Mizuno Wave Lightning RX Men's Volleyball Shoes are the latest version of Mizuno's popular Wave Lightning Men's Volleyball Shoes, featuring an updated look combined with high-performance technologies designed to keep you performing at the highest level. The Mizuno Wave Lightning RX Men's Volleyball Shoes feature a new look and new name, yet retain all of the features that have made previous models a huge success.

The included AP+ midsole helps provide for increased rebound and cushion durability while maintaining lightweight performance that volleyball players demand. The Men's Wave Lightning RX Volleyball Shoes also feature Mizuno VS-1 technology for superior shock absorption and comfort.

The Men's Lightning RX also features a redesigned upper that features TPU webbing melded with the mesh for a lightweight upper that also accommodates players with larger feet due to a larger toe box.

Dynamotion Groove technology features strategically designed grooves in the outsole that help combat forefoot instability by retaining their structure under heavy stress. The Wave Lightning RX Men's Volleyball Shoes also feature the innovative Mizuno Intercool and AirMesh technologies which help make the Wave Lightning RX the ultimate choice among top volleyball players. The midsole ventilation system helps reduce heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe during play, keeping the foot dry, cool and comfortable at all times. Mizuno AirMesh technology also features a triple-layered mesh upper that provides the utmost in breathability and comfort. The Mizuno Wave Lightning RX Men's Volleyball Shoes also feature a unique Sensor Point suspension system which connects the wave plate to the ground, enhancing stability and traction on the court. The XG Rubber outsole also provides for enhanced traction and flexibility.

        Still a great volleyball shoe. These models don't change too much from year to year, but they are as solid as ever. A little pricey though, so make sure you never wear them except on the gym surface.

                        Comments about Mizuno Wave Lightning RX Men's Volleyball Shoes:

                        The best thing about this shoe is the grip I get. I was using a cross training new balance shoe before on a gym floor to play vball but would usually have to take a double step before spiking or getting digs. Whatever rubber this uses does well on a gym floor. The second thing I really like is its lightweight. Lastly, the rubber feels cushioned in all the right spots during play. I've played with them twice only in league games so don't have too much more to say.

                          Excellent racquetball shoe! The structure of the shoe gives me the right amount of lateral support and the sole gives outstanding grip on a racquetball court surface. Very lightweight shoe and extremely durable. Love these shoes!

                            The shoe is great, but usually run narrow. The shoe itself isn't very durable though and you will most likely need a new pair each season if you practice regularly.

                                Good light shoe. not the most comfortable but its lighter than most so that might be why. Can see it wear out easy, but makes a good practice shoe.

                                    These shoes are great! I haven't worn volleyball shoes to play in years. It's amazing to see how well shoes are designed for a specific sport. I went with mizuno because I know there shoes fit me well. They are true to their size and hold my foot very well. Not sure on the durability yet, only had them for a month or so. So far do good!
