I used to play competitive badminton (Open/A grade in both the USA and Australia), and now play relatively high level, recreational squash. Because of the wear and tear on my knees from 18 plus years of badminton, and the general pounding of the squash game, I prefer court shoes that have excellent cushioning in both the heel and the forefoot.
About the sizing, I believe because of the fitted cut: quite tight in the heel and around the arch area, then gradually flaring out around the forefoot region, it is important to try these shoes on prior to purchase. A little bit too long and the cut in the arch region will end up feeling too tight.
I pretty much only use Asics, but I've found that depending on the model, I've successfully worn anywhere from an 8, 8.5, to even a 9. The Volleycross, I'm wearing an 8.5.
In terms of play, the Gel-Volleycross Revolution MT were some of the best I've ever used. They simply never caused me a second thought during their first use on court, which was in a competitive match. And that's pretty unique, as usually when I wear shoes on the court for the first time, or switch models from day to day, I will notice the different 'feel' on the court's surface.
When I tried these on for the first time, I also tried on the Asics Sensei 4. This is where I first noted the very 'fitted' cut of the newer Asics models. The Sensei I tried on was a size 9 (the store didn't have 8.5 in stock). Being just a little too long and they were uncomfortable, width wise, in the arch region, pinching on the outside edge of my foot.
The Volleycross was perfect in a size 8.5. No slack side to side, or forward movement in the store, nor anything noticeable on the court. And the grip on the wood floor was superb.
They fit perfectly for me. I have wide feet with no arch so the first 15 minutes of play felt funny but as i continued they just started working the way they should. I recommend this for those who have no arch or even a small arch with wide feet.
I feel them as very stable in lateral movements and they are also very light. I used more than four Asics models lately, most of them really good, but this are by far the best.
Felt a little narrow at the beginning, but after a couple of training sessions and a match, they adapted to my feet.
