With exceptional fit, enhanced traction and upgraded, shock-absorbing cushioning, the Gel-Rocket 8 model is a top-level shoe for an entry-level price. Known as a longtime favorite of beginner and intermediate court players, the latest Gel-Rocket incarnation features ASICS stabilizing Trusstic System Technology, gum rubber on the outsole for traction and ASICS signature Forefoot Gel Technology Cushioning System.

As a volleyball player, you know you should be quick on your feet. Suit up with the ASICS Men's Gel Rocket 8 Volleyball Shoes, which feature lightweight synthetic uppers and a low-top design. As you volley, serve and spike, the gel cushioning in the forefoot areas will help ensure you stay comfortable throughout the entire game.
What I really love about this shoe is that it has enhanced traction and better cushioning than most of the other volley shoes I've tried, and has a lighter feel due to the Trusstic System (which eliminates shock during impact). It's also designed for both trainee and mid-way players!
Another perfect item to pair with your Asics Gel Rocket is the ASICS ZK2000 Stripe Crew Socks. This sock is a great mixture between comfort and performance, and has a fun look with the two-colored stripes lining the top. It's also an ideal length for most volleyball players. If you're looking for a short to complete the look, I recommend the ASICS Men's BT2685 X-Over Shorts - 8" Inseam. It's ideal for practice, games, or weekends spent in the yard.
