Asics Gel Rocket shoe review

Trusstic for midfoot support
Forefoot GEL for shock attenuation
Removable moulded sockliner
EVA lasting

Fit: The shoe fits well enough, feels like no break-in period is needed. Size fits as indicated.

First impression:
The shoes feels like it sits slightly higher up the ground but not much when you wear it. There is extra shoe lace holes to tie the tongue securely and prevent ankle roll.

Game time: Great cushioning and great for lunges. However for explosive movement or split step, it's a bit slow. For jumpsmashes, the cushioning is good but a bit too heavy to chasse rearward quickly in position for a jumpsmash.

Pros: Nice colors, affordable price and cushioning.

Cons: A bit heavy and has not much ventilation.

Fit: 8.5/10
ventilation: 6/10
feel: 8/10
Cushioning: 9.5/10
Durability: 9.5/10
movement/: 7/10
Grip: 8/10
