Pros Great traction, perfect initial cushioning, various styles Lightest shoes on the list, great traction, varied selection of color schemes Good fit overall, solid traction nice color options Fit is fantastic, light for their sizing, very classic style True to size, comfortable, good traction, solid design
Cons Durability issues, looses cushioning with use Durability issues, run a bit mall, Slightly awkward design A little narrow, not as much cushioning as expected A little on the hard side, Limited variety of color schemes Poor support, a little narrow, very limited color selection
Bottom Line A very nice shoe overall, especially for people who want extra cushioning and more toe space. A steal at the normal price point. A mixed bag. The traction is nice and when the shoe fits it's a great fit. There's definitely a lot to love about the shoe.Still, it suffers from a shorter than expected lifespan that negatively impacts all its specs. These shoes fit nicely, look good, and grip the floor with precision. The main issue is the cushioning, which can be hit or miss. If you can deal with that and a fit that runs a bit small these are great shoes. Very faithful sizing, a good bet if you're unsure about sizing. It's not the most colorful shoe but it has the basics of style down. Suffers a bit in the cushioning department, but on balance it's a superior shoe. All around good volleyball shoe. Limited colorways but gives good bang for your buck.
