I was looking for a moderate priced shoe to wear when I do my morning treadmill walk/run and was happy to find these. They are super light weight and offer really good support. They feel like a much more expensive shoe - don't be fooled by the reasonable price!

We got these for our son's volleyball activities. Since the first time he used them he was impressed, claiming that he could jump higher, bounce better. They look like a well made pair of shoes, not too pretty for my eye, but I guess, I am not their direct consumer.

I'm a fairly serious (male) volleyball player, mostly at OH, and was looking to replace my Asics, and figured I'd give Mizuno a try. These are nice shoes, but not for everyone. They are a snug fit on the width, which I love. These shoes are light, 'quick', 'stiff' and are very breathable-lot of mesh and vents directly to the outside, even through the sole. The soles are removable, I use my custom orthotics with no issues. However these are definitely made for volleyball, and won't transfer well to the other sports that traditionally use Vball shoes (racquetball, badminton, etc). Other than the price consideration, these are great shoes for hitters/jumpers, but I think I would recommend 'softer' different shoes for setters/defensive players, since these feel a little high off the floor.

Shoes were sized as expected and fit great, traction on toe section is not quite as good as I expected, heels have good grip. Insoles have a slight inward tilt to them as well. Sturdy and lightweight, good ventilation.

I'd also recommend: Asics

I was using my old trainer shoes before when playing volleyball, now switched to these and feels great. I agree with the other reviewer, they are stiff. I'm not sure if it'll get softer as I break in. But as it is, provides great deal of support when jumping. I'd buy it again. no hot spots, no blisters. I'm 6'1", 205lbs, size 11.5, I usually wear cushioned socks.
