    both wave fang pro and wave fang rv2 are very good. Light weight, comfortable and excellent grip. But they are quite expensive.

    >drools< The RX looks so nice.

    The Wave Fang Pro, Wave Fang VS2 new color (what Endo was wearing), Wave Fang RV are great shoes. Well cushioned and fairly light. Yes they are expensive because they're mainly only available in Japan and HK.

    I make overseas orders from Canada and those are the only places i can get them. I pay avg 125 to $150 for a pair, but i always order 2 pairs to save on the shipping.

    1. select the shoes you want to compare

    2. click "Compare" "比較する" which is right on top of MS shoes.

    3. copy and paste to translate with Google Translate..

    based on the feature one to one comparision , RV allow wider feet compare to Pro.
    I see nothing else or than outlook design ....

    i would appreciate those who was a user himself to share your review and comparision based on features rgds to the infor are too surface for judgement.

    In my opinion

    Pro is the prime product, use natural leather, has the best support / protection, but solely intended for narrow feet.
    However the Pro was released on early 2013, and its design is a bit outdated for the present (compared to other high-end competitors in its class).

    VS2 is within the lightweight category, and use synthetic leather.
    There is no changes in feature for the the new VS2, albeit its color.

    RV & RX has the highest cushion, and use synthetic leather.

    The outsole design of the Pro version (released in early 2013) is still being applied for RV and VS.
    Whilst the RX has a new outsole design, which contains separated lateral protection.


    CMIIW - this is based on rough translation and understanding :D

    Hi!
    After lots of Research and Reading the Forum.
    Been Thinking to Purchase one of the Mizuno Badminton Shoes.
    Probably From http://shuttle-house.com/new-cgi/product_list-en.php?ko=18&mk=MIZUNO.
    (Please Recommend any other Website that you have in mind & which offers better Discount)
    Within My Budget i can utmost Stretch to Wave Fang XT2,
    Which also Resembles in Colour to my Previous Badminton Shoe,
    i.e Yonex Ultima SC5 Pro. This is Going to Be My First Ever International Buy.
    But I'm Unsure About the Size Standards of this Shoes Coz i Have Read Unusual Fittings About Other Shoes From Japan.
    My Feet are Bit Wider and I Use to Wear Size UK8/US9/Euro42 of Yonex Ultima SC5 Pro.Which Fits Ok.
    And it would be a Total Disguise if i 'm Delivered Shoe with Inappropriate Size.
    So To Sort Out that Inconvenience i have a Pic of the Measurement of My Feet that Was Taken after Wearing Normal Regular Shocks.
    Here Foot Impression with Dimensions.jpg
    Correction : The Length Size Should be 25cm Not 24.7 as Written their.
    Also Please Throw Some Insight About the Quality of Mizuno Badminton Shoe with Respect to Other Brands Like Yonex, Li Ning, Victor, Adidas, Asics etc..Where does it Stands Among Them.
    It will be Very Helpful if Somebody can Compare Other Shoe Brand of Similar Price Tag with Mizuno Shoes..
    The Seller Demands The Amount in JPY only.
    i reside in India and I Have Balance in INR (Indian Rupee)
    If Somebody has Ever Done transaction from Shuttle House. Please Be in Touch.
    Although i have Queried with Emails, My Knowledge is Limited and Your Experience can help me Better.
    Thanks for Going Through!
    Have a Nice Day :)

    i have wave fang rv, bought from japan 3 months ago, and it feels awesome. cushion is good, light weight, rubber compound for the out sole is really soft, it provide a great grip, but in the other hand if you play a lot, it wear out quickly too. and for player with wide feet like me, i feel this is the best shoes available on the market. :p
