Make both your performance and appearance stand out on the court with the ASICS Gel-Netburner Academy 7 Women's Netball Shoes. Performance enhancing and with a striking design, these court shoes will put you a head above the rest.
Covering the top half of the shoe is a lightweight material upper. The overall weight of the shoe is helped to be kept down by this, meaning that sharp bursts of power are not restricted, helping you gain that extra yard on your opponent. With breathable features, the material allows for a steady airflow in and out, keeping the feet ventilated. Secure and easy to fasten laces with a padded tongue mean you can find your unique secure and comfortable fit. The solid sides surrounding the heel protect it from heavy impacts, also supporting the ankle as well. Over the toes the material is thicker, acting as a shield from bumps and knocks received during play.
Commonly used in marathon and racing shoes, the Solyte technology developed by ASICS is a noticeably lighter EVA than what is used in other midsoles. Altogether, Solyte is around half the weight of a normal midsole, but it is also a lot more responsive. It has 20% better shock absorption than previous versions, which makes heavy landings and take-offs feel gentle. As well as this, there is a moulded compound under the mid-foot area. This provides a controlled and contoured midsole, and improves arch support and torsion stability. Rearfoot and Forefoot Gel Cushioning Systems developed by ASICS attenuate shocks during high impact and toe-off phases. This means that you will get the support from the shoe when you need it most.
For complete control on the court, the AHAR outsole bring superior grip and traction to the shoe. Vital for helping with explosive acceleration, sudden braking and sharp turns and transitions, the strong rubber create a strong grip with wet and dry surfaces. Durable and abrasion resistant, the rubber maintains its shape and definition over a long time. Areas that need the grip most have thicker layers of the AHAR rubber, making these areas have as much support as they need.
