Mizuno Volleyball Shoes Vs Other Brands
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Since I have been playing volleyball for so long, I have had the chance to try out almost every kind of volleyball shoe that has been made. LOL

The first pair of volleyball shoes that I ever purchased were Avia. Being in seventh grade, they worked just fine. They were comfortable, and they served their purpose, for a modified volleyball player. Plus, they were in my price range. The only downfall, by the end of the season, they were ripping out on the sides.

My second pair of volleyball shoes were Asics. A little pricier than my first volleyball shoe purchase. Comfort wise, they felt like the Avias. I liked them, and they held out better than the Avias did. These were my favorite, so far...

And my next volleyball sneaker purchase, were Adidas. I am an Adidas girl. All of my street shoes are Adidas, as well as the majority of my clothing. So, I thought spending eighty dollars on a pair of Adidas volleyball shoes was a very good investment. I was a little off. They looked awesome on. But on the court, I didn't get much traction. It didn't seem to matter where the court was, or how clean it was... Plus, when I jumped, it felt like they were going to fall off. No, they weren't too big either. I just wasn't completely satisfied, even thought they were super hot looking!! Not that I am bashing Adidas, like I said, every other pair of shoes and half of the clothing I own are Adidas. I was just not 100% satisfied with the volleyball shoes. So, they took a seat in my closet, and I had to find myself another pair of shoes to play in. Most of my friends had Mizunos, and they seemed popular among the college players, so, I gave them a shot. I have to admit, I always thought they looked very uncomfortable... But I was wrong. I am currently on my third pair of Mizunos. As far as volleyball sneakers go, I don't think that I will ever purchase any other brand. They are very comfortable, simple, and in my price range. Not to mention they are light, and I get great traction. And as much as my feet sweat, these shoes never smell!! Ha ha! That is a big plus! I am very happy with the Mizuno brand, and I would highly recommend them.

I realize that everyone has their own opinions, especially when it comes to shoes. Not everyone is going to be as happy with Mizunos, as I am. I understand that. I am just giving you my opinion, based on my experience. So, don't run out and purchase Mizunos just because I said to!! But, I do thank you for reading my article!! Happy Volleyball Trails! :)
