    The RV's are pretty comfortable. It's a low profile shoe, meaning that you're close to the ground so you should expect more responsive footwork. It's also lightweight due to what appears to be heat bonded thin TPU to mesh, as there is some stitching but not a whole lot. The TPU resists stretching and add rigidity to the uppers. The TPU also helps to mold the shoe to your foot, which is a nice plus.

    I bought mine in Hong Kong. I haven't seen it in many of the local stores, however I haven't checked Tad's which usually is on top of this stuff. Maybe call Gary and see if he's brought them in.

    Another nice touch that the shoe has, is that the insole is mated to the shoe's footbed. The bottom of the insole has a outward honeycomb pattern. The footbed of the shoe is also a honeycomb pattern but is inward, creating a natural tongue and groove fit between the two components.

    As a owner of wave rx3 I would like to give some review on the shoe

    I have to clarify that I'm a volleyball and badminton player. So I picked up the RX3 and I hope it can suit both games.

    Coming from a Li-Ning Hero. (Lin Dan's ex shoe) which is sorta heavy but very comfortable while wearing and gave me much support that I needed for both games. I found that the RX3 is lighter and higher!(from the ground) when I first wore it and walked inside my house. The sole is so tacky that I feel like I can walk on walls like Spider-Man!

    Onto the game session...
    I've been wearing the RX3 for 3 badminton session and I would like to say it is NOT SUITABLE FOR BADMINTON!
    First - The shoe doesn't make any squeak sound like any other badminton shoes out there and in fact i slipped quite a couple of time while i lunged forward for a net shot
    2 - The shoe sole doesn't provided enough gripping to the ground (less friction against the ground)

    Pros
    - lightweight
    - good air ventilation
    - excellent heel shock absorption
    - fits your leg (normal leg width)
    - made me jump higher (volleyball)
    - Stable

    Cons
    - Doesn't grip the ground like any other badminton shoes
    - not suitable for wide feet
    - Expensive (MYR275)

    I hope that my review helps and feel free to ask any questions! Drop me a mail chindonsang@gmail.com
    Or PM me if you want to know anything more detail about the shoe.

    Anyone noticed the Mizuno shoes that Japan team is wearing during the 2014 Asian Games? Is it still XT2, just a new color ?

    Hi!
    After lots of Research and Reading the Forum.
    Been Thinking to Purchase one of the Mizuno Badminton Shoes.
    Probably From Shuttle-House.com/en.
    (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.
    or Is it a Good Choice to Go for Wave Fang RX? :eek: , looks Very Nice and That Breathable mesh, open Vents at bottom is Tempting. However, 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 (i don't mean Negative) Rumors of 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 :)
