You may have to do some hunting to find volleyball-specific shoes
locally, but it's worth the hunt. Volleyball shoes will have gum
rubber soles for the best traction, and a fair amount of cushioning to
absorb the shock of landing.
I second the Nike endorsement. For more info on equipment I like,

Pass Set Crush is the stuff, as a chorus of others have said.

Always play with people better than you if at all possible. It's the
only way to improve. Get involved with a USA Volleyball team or club
that practices regularly. That's enormously beneficial in comparison
to just playing a league match once a week.
If there's a volleyball class at a community college, or park and rec
department, take it.
If Pat Powers clinic comes to your town...go. :-)
