Has anyone ever run into this problem ... I recently brough out a pair of Adidas Stabil 2 which I had bought from an online store which was getting rid of older models. I had not used them in 6 months as I had been wearing out my current pair of Asics.

The shoes are great, but they have way too much grip. In only a few times using them, I have almost rolled my ankle a few times and a few days ago, finally did ... fortunately not a sprain, but some pain. I am going to retire them for gym workouts and go to another shoe. Is there such a thing as to much grip in particular as you move lateraly? Anyone have a problem with this?

Indoor court shoes are a good choice, eg. as in table tennis or badminton.

Squash players need a "court" shoe because of the amount of twisting and turning during squashplay. Many years ago I played in a tennis shoe and went to step back to a ball behind to make a boast shot and rolled my ankle so the lesson was learned, if it is high and will flip over on the edges of the sole and heel forget them.
