Comment from Nishida:
Thank you very much for providing me with an environment where I can play as a volleyball player. In volleyball, in addition to jumping, performance depends on responding quickly and endurance. Therefore, we place importance on the insoles that support the entire body from the feet up and compression items that support overworked muscles. I have been looking for reliable, functional, and comfortable products across many different brands, and Zamst products have become my favorite. I am glad to enter this sponsorship with them, and I would like to thank Zamst again for giving me a playing environment.
