The Asics Sky Elite FF is a volleyball shoe that was introduced by Asics in 2019. At $130, it’s a high-end shoe in the Asics range. I first heard about this via a tip from Jess, who said some shops around the US are touting this as a top-of-the-line squash shoe. We’ll have to wait and see.
Here’s the marketing blah-di-blah:
Feel the energy to return every shot with the men’s SKY ELITE™ FF volleyball shoe by ASICS. Designed for indoor courts, its N.C. RUBBER™ outsole boasts high abrasion resistance and excellent grip, meaning you can make quick turns and jumps with ease. TRUSSTIC SYSTEM® technology in the midfoot works to control twisting, while GEL® technology in the rear of the shoe provides shock absorption and cushioning. The midsole is made from FLUIDRIDE® technology meaning it contains lightweight fibres that bounce back into shape in the space of each stride to create adaptive cushioning underfoot. An added layer of comfort comes from the mesh insole, while the ORTHOLITE™ sockliner provides extra cushioning and effective moisture management, so you don’t need to worry about sweat even during the most intense matches. The sockliner is also removable, to allow space for your own orthotics if needed. We’ve packed all this technology into a lightweight, streamlined shoe that’s sure to become an essential part of your matchday collection.

So we learn from that video, among other things, that this is the successor to the Asics Gel Volley Elite.
