I ended up playing some volleyball last night with my zero drop merrell’s. They worked pretty well. Very little ankle support, but with all of my foot strengthening exercises, they felt quite stable all night long. I also read a small blurb on the Altra running shoe site that the zero drop helps jump performance.

Also read in another article that the zero drop actually helps jumping by allowing greater dorsiflexion – which translates into allowing more muscle engagement.
