Comfort. You need comfortable shoes when playing volleyball. It's ideal for your feet to feel like they are wearing shoes. You want to move around as natural as possible.
Good grip. You want to feel your feet connect with the playing surface as if you aren't wearing shoes. You should have a sensitive grip to the floor in order to grip the surface to make quick explosive movements on the court.
Appropriate cushioning. Your shoes should be cushioned well to provide you stability for making athletic plays in volleyball. And you don't want to much cushioning that makes it hard for you to grip the floor. Too much cushion messes up stability and makes it hard to be quick. Too little cushion can confuse your feet on how to move on the court.
Appropriate Heel Height. An extreme heel height can mess up your performance. You need a lower heel arch support (not like the high heel arches you see in basketball shoes). A lower heel allows for faster lateral movements. Also, high arches don't make sense for brace supports.
Breath-ability. You want shoes that can breathe well if you play a lot of competitive volleyball. Moisture in shoes can cause you to slip and slide around. Mizuno volleyball shoes a breath-ability features that help ventilate the shoe to keep your feet dry and comfortable.
