    Perfect Fit
    Shoes fit perfectly and were packaged well in an Asics shoe box. I'll definitely purchase items from here again. BTW, they look great too! Thanks!

    Well done all around
    The service was excellent--delivery sooner than expected; the price was very good; and the shoes are exactly what I need. I use them for handball, and I need excellent traction on the wood floor. These provide it. If I could wish for one other thing, it would be for ASICS to make this shoe a little wider in the toe box. But I can live with a little snugness, and they will stretch a bit, judging by experience with earlier models.

    Great pickleball shoe, indoors
    Excellent shoe for indoor pickleball, relatively light with good traction . I have wide feet, so ordered a men's 8.5 instead of a women's 10.

    Bought the shoes for pickle ball and they are great. Fit is true to your size, very comfortable, great grip, and they hold the feet in place starting or stopping

    For Indoor Pickleball
    I bought these for an indoor Pickleball tournament I had coming up in a week. The shoes arrived just in time. They felt a little big width-wise but a thicker pair of socks did the trick. I wore them for the first time during the tournament so thankfully there was no break-in time.

    Love this shoe
    Purchased for my two sons who play volleyball. Fit was perfect and both boys were comfortable in them day one. Very happy with my purchase.
    Team Member: Susan, thanks so much for taking the time to post a review! We're so pleased that your sons are enjoying the shoes. Have a great season!

    Did not fit at all
    I am really surprised and disappointed. I read the reviews which all said they fit true to size...and I like the shoes, but I could barely squeeze my foot into them. I have worn a size 12 my entire adult life (I'm 66) and have never worn a wide shoe. I play pickleball, racquetball, and every so often, volleyball. I am reluctant to order again since it has already cost me almost $14 in shipping and I have nothing at all to show for it.

    Gel Rocket 8 - a bit of a dispointment
    First off - All Volleyball - Great service, no issues 5 stars! Gel-Rocket 8 - not so much..... I have worn rockets for approx 8-10 seasons, and loved them. Nice fit, good support, decent price point for a 1/week over-the-hill player like me. And the make for good street shoes once they start to cave a bit. After wearing the 8s for 2 weeks, I'm disappointed. the vinyl uppers are a let down compared to the mesh. The shoe gets much hotter, and the upper seems much stiffer. The heal cup sits a bit lower than previous models, and doesn't contain my heal as well. No issues with the soles. And while not nearly as important, they don't look as good as previous models... they really come off as a Champion-style bargain shoe. I love asics, they are my go-top brand, but this one was a definite miss.
    Team Member: Hi Darrell! Thank you for leaving such a well thought out review. Positive or negative, we truly appreciate honest feedback from our customers. If you check your E-mail, we would love an opportunity to make things right! Thanks, All Volleyball Family

    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.
