I thought volleyball shoes are for jumping more than for rapid side to side.

Much of the movement in volleyball is side to side.

Due to my plantar fasciitis I have bought quite some pairs of quality shoes. Mostly for badminton, but the best I found so far is this.

Looks like these shoes also have a ventilated bottom like my favorite, the Butterfly Energy Force 3. It really helps to keep your feet cool and thus very comfortable.

Yes, there is a ventilated bottom although I don't find them most breathable pair from my collection. What is important for me is the outstanding cushioning and stability , best grip so far and the  light weight.

Something I personally don't cheap out on is shoes.
I've switched over to Asics completely and even went to their outlets to buy 2 pairs of nice shoes for only $120 it was BOGO free and I also use the Asics dominate ff from tt11 best decision ever. I have both the blue and white/red ones. Compared to Mizuno there much more lighter and breathable. Wave drives were way too heavy and I sold them
Wave neo z was good but didn't last long the bottoms ripped off
Wave medal z was not bad lasted the longest but again the durability is still not that good on them. 
Wave drive neos were funky 
I personally do not endorse using non tt related shoes because you won't know till later if it really helps or damages your body more so than you think.

I got my plantar fasciitis because of mine (two pairs)Mizuno wave medal 5. They are NOT made for playing on a hard floor and their grip is quickly gone. I realized this when it was too late.Anyway good looking shoes, but thats all

I think it all depends on if you are looking for support or mobility, I guess it will depend on your body type and footwork requirement.  I prefer Yonex over Asics where I am but neither of them sell TT shoes here.  I have been recently using Mizuno Wave Drive 8 which for me is more appropriate for TT

How do you find badminton shoes for TT?

I don't know if its because they are dirty or the flooring as i am briefly playing in a new location, but my reasonably new [ < 20 - 30 hrs of play] Wave Medal 6's are now moving very slowly. 

I moved quicker in my significantly heavier tennis shoes even.

I tried my badminton victor [A-920 shoes] and they are unbelievable. As quick as the WM6's were when they were cleaner / on the ideal floor.

The badminton shoes are in the middle of their life and haven't been cleaned either [will give both of them a big scrub when i get home]..unfortunately i think when walking small distances to catch public transport etc, i sometimes walked with the TT shoes which didn't help

I don't see why one couldn't use badminton shoes. They are 374 g per shoe [size 10.5 US / 28.5 cm]
so only 70g more than the very light WM6.

They are both very quick sports with a lot of lateral movement, although of course badminton is largely 45 degree movement.

Maybe TT shoes are more temperamental with regards to different flooring, in any case, [these] badminton shoes seem to excel on a wider range of either floors, or state of dustiness/[un]cleanliness.

I'm between these table-tennis shoes by ASICS

ATTACK DOMINATE FF (with the new Flyte-Foam tech, very light at 225gr, sell exclusively in Japan)

and 
ATTACK BLADELYTE 4 (seems to be a little more cushioned, but also heavier at 325gr)

any opinions/feedback would be much appreciated!

I heard Asics tend to run a bit narrower. My friend owns both models and he says the Attack Dominate FF (the lighter weight ones) are more comfortable. Definitely go up a size if you are in between size!

I just bought an Adidas Cloudfoam with gum rubber and it works quite well in terms of feet comfort (i accidentally hurt my foot in badminton and am recovering), but I feel I have way more control and power from the ground when I'm playing in Vibram Fivefingers (but that is a lot more demanding on the feet which is not so great when you're recovering).

I used play far away from table lobbing both sides so I always looked for the lightest shoe & actually weighed my shoes.
That is freaking awesome at 7.934 ounces weight.  But in general, the problem with mail order shoes is same as mail order brides(or grooms) . Ha Ha just kidding . If you buy the wrong size , what do you do ? Send them back at at shipping more than cost of shoes ? 

I have found that most tennis / basketball / cross-training / volleyball shoes are very heavy. 

Tried wrestling shoes - These are great with ankle protection but heels too flat & somewhat heavy

Tried sprinting shoes with rubber spikes are great except that they are designed for forward movement not lateral. I once sprained my ankle REAL REAL bad.
Of course I don't screw in the spikes on............yet.......unless there is a future outdoor table tennis event.     BTW the most metal spike outdoor sprint shoes are awesome light-weight but since the screw-in pins on the shoe side render them unusable indoor .

Many racing flats are decent but tend to get heavy. There are many many Nike / Adidas / Reebok flats but you have to find the right ones.

I have even bought some beach shoes ($5) at Walmart . They were great but no longer available. Most new ones are very heavy on the sole side (that breaks my soul) 

I like some of the five finger shoes though they are a pain to put on.  Lot of good stuff from China at good prices but again the size & availability are the problems.

But if you are not very mobile and play close to the table , you are better off using heavier tennis or basketball shoes for most protection of ankles & feet

Perhaps a hate war will fall on me now, but the girl, like us, loves stylish and comfortable shoes and believe me, your soul mate will definitely be very happy if you give her some very cool and stylish model of sneakers for sports. I was very lucky because my girlfriend is fond of tennis and I decided to give her cool tennis shoes for March 8th. I found reviews for different models at https://tennisshoesdeals.com/best-supportive-tennis-shoes. The variety is really very large and everyone will find something perfect for themselves or their significant other.

For getting tennis shoes if you step into the market or visit online portals, which is full of options. one will get lots of options which will satisfy the needs of each level player and even one can use these on different tennis court. 
Well coming back to the question, if i have to throw my suggestion in this discussion i would go with Wilson Tennis Shoes. Have a look at its awesome features which makes it different and special from others. 

Wilson brings innovative technologies in tennis shoes that creates a lethal combination of explosiveness and stability that support aggressive movements towards the net. Wilson Tennis shoes use a lightweight, engineered mesh that improves breathability and comfort.

The 4th generation of Rush Pro Tennis shoes are good for attacking players looking for a stable, explosive shoe mold enhancing comfort without compromising the stability that drives explosive speed. Wilson Tennis shoes come with game-changing designs with contemporary colour schemes - an appealing combination for any tennis player.

I have worn volleyball shoes for TT, but they have usually taller cushion and harder outsole. After I tried mizuno and bty shoes, I think I prefer to  wear tt shoes, not volleyball or even badminton shoes. They are made for different purposes.

I'm a total ASICS fan for TT shoes. They are 100% great, I feel them as if they were designed especially for my feet. I liked them so much that even when it got a little worn out, my wife repaired it (luckily at the moment she was into shoe crafts and had one of those weird machines). Anyway, throughout my whole life, I had several ASICS pairs and never regretted buying them.

I used various Asics Gel Rocket models for a long time and really liked the weight and cushioning.  Then I tried ADIDAS X TANGO 18+ IN INDOOR SOCCER shoes which are significantly lighter and very comfortable.  They are slip-ons and a bit hard to put on but very secure when wearing them.  I wish I knew what the next generation of these shoes are, Adidas models are confusing.

I started with some Nike indoor soccer shoes.  They were fine but I wanted to see if actual TT shoes made a difference.  I purchased some Li Ning's, the same model Ma Long had worn the last few years.  I must say they are amazing and make a huge difference.  Better grip, better side to side stability, and more comfortable!  YMMV

I have tried the shoe which the professionals use to play with. But after using same piece like them I realized that there is a huge difference between me and those players, they are professionals and I am naive, after this I purchased a cool pair of mens sports shoes from online site and found that the activeness in me increased because of the shoes. You can not become expert at once, you have to follow the steps to achieve your goals. Let me share the shoe which I have bought from https://www.muftijeans.in/mufti-footwear.html">mens sports shoes. Hope you guys also like my choice as a beginner in this game.
