The Gel-Rocket 7 brings exceptional value and performance season after season. This season offers a lighter weight upper and increased gum rubber on the outsole for improved traction. Updated styling and design will continue to make this series the shoe of choice for recreational court sport players everywhere. The GEL-Rocket 7 Men's Shoes feature a breathable mesh topped with stabilizing synthetic overlays, it also features ASICS Forefoot GEL Cushioning System for exceptional cushioning on high impact moves on the court. The lace-up front has seven eye lace closures for a comfortable/adjustable fit. The Asics Trusstic System technology helps reduce the weight of the sole, while retaining the structural integrity of the shoes, allowing the GEL-Rocket 7 to remain lightweight at only 11.2 ounces. The NC Rubber Outsole compound contains more natural rubber content than traditional solid rubber, resulting in enhanced traction on racquetball or squash courts.
