Asics Squash Shoes Men

Asics squash shoes are used by many top pros and club players. They’re one of the top brands of squash shoes worldwide.

As with many other manufacturers, Asics do not actually make squash shoes per se; they make non-marking indoor court shoes. They market their shoes primarily towards volleyball and handball players, but Asics are also appropriate shoes for playing on squash courts, and many players use them.

Below you will find links to the latest men’s styles. For women’s shoes, see Asics Squash Shoes Women.

Asics Squash Shoes

Asics have a number of different models:

Asics Gel Blade
Asics Gel Blast
Asics Gel Domain
Asics Gel Dominion
Asics Gel Fireblast
Asics Gel Flashpoint
Asics Gel Progressive
Asics Gel Rocket
Asics Gel Sensei
Asics Gel Tactic
Asics Gel Upcourt
Asics Gel Volleycross


Asics Gel Blade

The Asics Gel Blade 4 is a higher-end shoe from Asics, $120 currently. This one’s got a classic style and I’ve seen them around quite a bit. At various points I’ve seen Karim Abdel Gawad, Tom Richards, and LJ Anjema in these.


Asics Gel Blast

Another high-end Asics squash shoe, the Asics Gel Blast 6 runs around $120. The prior version, the Asics Gel Blast 5, was quite popular, but they made some big stylistic changes to this shoe for the Gel Blast 6, and I don’t think they won many people over with the new designs.

Asics Gel Blast 5


Asics Gel Domain

The Asics Gel Domain 3 is around $90. The previous model, the Asics Gel Domain 2, was quite popular, but I haven’t seen the 3s around much.

Asics Gel Dominion

Also $90. These Asics Gel Dominion seem quite similar to the Gel Domain 3 above, except with mesh above the toe, for more breathability.


Asics Gel Fireblast

The Asics Gel Fireblast is the shoe of World #1 Mohamed El Shorbagy. UK only. Around £85 but prices vary.


Asics Gel Flashpoint

We’re now on the Asics Gel Flashpoint 2, which cost around $90. Flash.


Asics Gel Progressive

The Asics Gel Progressive 2. Malaysia’s Nafiizwan Adnan was spotted wearing these. Cool design. Seem to be UK only. Around £70.


Asics Gel Rocket

Very popular, and have been for years. We’re now on the 7th iteration, the Asics Gel Rocket 7. Around $70.

Previous models:
Asics Gel Rocket 6
Asics Gel Rocket 5


Asics Gel Sensei

The Asics Gel Sensei 5 run about $100. Tons of cushioning, but that adds weight.

Asics Gel Sensei 4


Don’t know much about the Asics Gel Tactic. They cost around $95.


Asics Gel Upcourt

The Asics Gel Upcourt are pretty cheap, about $55. A couple of friends use these and like them, and they seem to have held up well too.


Asics Gel Volleycross

I think the newest model is called the Asics Gel Volleycross Revolution It runs about $100 and has more ankle support than other shoes.

    Hey Pierre, what about the gel progressive? I get a lot of request for squash shoes that will fit very wide feet as well as more cushioning. Any suggestions? Best regards, Jabba the nick.

    • Pierre Bastien says

      Hi Jabba, good call — I forgot the Progressive, and Fireblast too! I haven’t tried either so I’m not sure on the sizing, but I think the feedback on Asics is they are generally best for narrow feet. I’ve heard good things about Prince shoes for wide feet.
