1. ASICS’ research shows that there are roughly three playing styles in indoor court sports such as volleyball, basketball, and handball: Higher, Stronger, and Faster. Each shoe is designed with different functions to support these playing styles.

Higher playing style:

For the player typically playing vertically who needs more cushioning to jump higher and land softer.

Faster playing style:

For the high-speed player who needs a lightweight and flexible shoe to move faster.

Stronger playing style:

For the player who typically plays closer to the ground and needs extra stability for stronger steps and turns.
