Asics Sky Elite FF

Keep your cool on the court by wearing the Sky Elite FF. This Asics volleyball trainer features breathable elements like the mesh top and the removable insole. The ‘FF’ in its name stands for FlyteFoam, a resilient cushioning system that is very responsive. As for the outsole, the non-marking rubber outsole provides excellent adherence to indoor volleyball courts.

If you’re looking for more underfoot cushioning, consider the Asics Gel Netburner Ballistic. Instead of FlyteFoam, it uses the FluidRide midsole, which absorbs shock and is also responsive to impact. It features Asics’ Rearfoot and Forefoot Gel for additional comfort. For traction, it uses a combination of N.C. Rubber and AHAR, or Asics High Abrasion Rubber.

  • The Asics vector is found on both the lateral and medial quarters.
  • The Asics name and logo are placed on the tongue, the insole, the heel panel, and the outsole.
