Women’s Asics Gel-Flashpoint 2

The Women’s Gel Flashpoint 2 from Asics are sure to get you noticed with their bright, bold color schemes. Made by Asics, you can rest assured you’ll get a quality volleyball shoe as well.


10 ounces

The Solyte® Midsole and Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning Systems provide superior cushioning. and the mesh upper will keep your feet cool and dry.


This is one of the favorite lines of volleyball shoes by Asics. Reviewers report the shoes to be comfortable and the traction is top notch. The colors are a huge draw for people and rarely a disappointment (see the cons section).


Some people complain that the shoes are too bright, as the picture shows the colors as a bit more pastel than they actually are. Be aware that you’re buying a very bright shoe.

Color & Style

The style of the shoe is built upon a classic Asics look, but bold colors are added to make this look unlike any of the rest.

Purple/Orange/Light Blue
Pink/Black/ Yellow

Review of Asics Gel-Flashpoint

Original Flashpoints have been discontinued

The ASICS Women’s GEL-Flashpoint Volleyball Shoes are one of the most popular volleyball shoes on the market. The shoe is reasonably priced and offers a variety of colors.

Specifics: 8.6 oz
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning System – This is a shock absorbing feature during the heal strike impact and push off. It still allows for the multi-planear movement as the foot moves.
NC Rubber® Outsole – A more natural rubber which allows for good traction and durability.

Pros: By far the biggest pro of ASICS GEL-Flashpoint
and one of the number one reasons they are purchased, is the coloring. There are 5 color patterns to choose from, and 4 of them are very attention getting. This is a nice wide shoe which provides lateral support to the wearer and it is lightweight which is good for jumping and moving.

Cons: There are reports of the Asics Gel Flashpoint having a small toe box, meaning there’s not a lot of room on the top and people end up losing feeling in their toes. There are also reports of this shoe being wide and running big. As I always like to point out, this is a personal preference more than a con. Try on a pair of any Asics locally so you know how they compare to the shoes you normally wear. Then you’ll know if you need to go down a size when ordering online.

I hope you enjoyed the Asics Gel-Flashpoint Review. Here are some other shoes you might be interested in reading about:
