The Best Volleyball Gear Of 2018

Every volleyball player is unique and deserves to gear up in shoes, equipment, and apparel that are built specifically for their style of play. That’s why, here at Eastbay, we pride ourselves on offering a huge selection of the latest volleyball gear from the biggest brands. No matter the style, size, or color — we’re here for you. Here is a look at the best volleyball gear of 2018:

 

Shoes

Nike Zoom Hyperace 2

The Nike Zoom Hyperace 2 is as versatile as it gets. Thanks to its TPU cage, Zoom Air midsole unit, and textile and synthetic construction, these shoes are the perfect mix of support, responsiveness, and comfort.

 

Under Armour Highlight Ace

If support is most important to you, the Under Armour Highlight Ace is your ideal choice. Its innovative high-top style wraps well above your ankle for complete stability. But this added protection won’t hold you back either — a tongue and vamp mesh upper enhances your breathability while two-way stretch material keeps you comfortable.

 

Under Armour Block City

The best net protectors on the team will love the Under Armour Block City. The Charged Cushioning midsole absorbs your impacts and converts your movements into added bounce, so that you can pile up the blocks game after game.

 

Mizuno Wave Lightning Z4

Calling all pin hitters and setters who rely on being quick on the court — you need to check out the Mizuno Wave Lightning Z4. Thanks to a locked-down fit and Sensorpoint suspension system, these shoes are built for those ultra-fast movements that you need to make.

 

Mizuno Wave Bolt 7

Looking for a lightweight, reliable shoe? Look no further than the Mizuno Wave Bolt 7. Mizuno’s dynamic Parallel Wave Plate is stable and responsive while the Air Mesh upper keeps things light and breathable. Active hitters in the back row will find these to be just what they need.

 

Kneepads

Kneepads are an essential part of your volleyball gear, and the right one needs to provide a hassle-free fit, complete protection, and an unrestricted range of motion. We have three great options to choose from: Nike Essential Volleyball Kneepads, Mizuno LR6 Kneepads, and adidas KP Elite Kneepads.

 

Braces

Ankle sprains are a constant worry for serious volleyball players, so braces are a must. The McDavid 195 Ultralite Ankle Brace features an elastic top strap for an added layer of support and a custom fit. The Zamst A2-DX and Mizuno DXS2 are two more terrific braces, with both providing you total freedom of movement and increased lateral stability.

 

Headbands

Stay cool. Stay dry. Stay dominant. Don’t forget to keep your hair and sweat out of your eyes with a volleyball headband. From the Nike Head Tie 2.0 with a customizable tie feature to the Nike Swoosh Sport Headbands 2.0, which come in a six-pack, to the Under Armour Performance Headband, which is available in three team-specific colors, you’ve got a ton of great options.

 

Backpacks

When it’s time to travel to games and practice, having the perfect backpack is essential. Lucky for you, Nike, adidas, and Under Armour all brought their A game. The Nike Hoops Elite Max Air 2.0, adidas Stadium II, and Under Armour Undeniable 3.0 all provide you with the versatile storage, easy access, and proven durability you’re looking for.

 


It’s time to step back on the volleyball court and make this your best season yet — and, with the best gear of 2018 to choose from, you’ll have a major advantage over your peers from the opening serve.
