With a low-profile look and design, the Asics Gel-Blade 4 is perfect for quick cuts and sharp movements.  Keeping true to Asics' reputation, these shoes are very well cushioned with their Gel Cushioning System, and very lightweight at only 12.1 ounces.  Despite their lack of mass, these shoes have a surprising amount of technology in them and won't sacrifice your stability when making aggressive movements.  The outsole is definitely one of the more unique aspects of this shoe as it features Asics’ Wet Grip Outsole technology combined with their NC Rubber for ultimate traction.  If you're really looking to sharpen your skills on court, be sure to pick up a pair of these Gel-Blade 4's.

Comments: I love these shoes! Due to my fallen arches, I need to wear half inserts and these shoes offer the space needed along with being extremely light and extremely durable. I play 3 to 4 times a week and have now owned these shoes for at least 3 months with no visible breakdown. Great traction and cutting on the court. I will be ordering these again from RbW.

Comments: Great buy! Traction is terrific. They are light and durable. I've had them for almost 6 months and they look like new out of the box. They fit my narrow foot and high arch really nice. I play sometimes 5 sessions a week and my feet feel great. There's no substitute for a quality racquetball shoe and Asics lead the way.

Comments: I really wanted to like these since I generally like Asics products. These are lightweight, seem well-made, and are good-looking to boot. Unfortunately they were painfully tight around the sides of my forefoot and I had to return them. I ran into the same problem with the Asics Gel Domain 2, though it wasn't quite as bad with the Gel Domain 2. I was surprised because I've owned multiple pairs of Asics running shoes and they've always fit me well from day one. I think I have a pretty "typical" foot--most shoes fit me well right out of the box. Maybe Asics makes the forefoot tight on these to improve lateral support, but unfortunately I found them painfully tight.

Comments: I have used many different types of RBall shoes over the 10 + years I have been playing. I have been wearing minimal court shoes for the past few years and find that these are my favorite. They are light weight and minimal. They compliment my style and game type. They are best pair of Asics court shoes I have worn to date.   Side note: They remind me of my Merrel minimal shoes. If you are into minimalist shoes, these are for you.  Shoes I have worn in the past: Hi-Tec Infinity Flare, Asics Gel Sensei 4, Asics Gel Domain 2 and many more

Comments: Absolutely worth the money.  I have been wearing cross-trainers on the court, and everyone told me to get some good racquetball shoes.  I'm very glad I did.  These shoes are snug but not tight - the way they should be.  Lightweight and breathable.  I sweat [a lot], so this was a nice feature.  I wear an Asics size 12 - and that's what I ordered.  Perfect fit.
