    I need a suggestion for badminton shoes.
    1.It's for a girl. Asian size should be around 240-250mm, will let her try it out again before buying
    2.high-end shoes would do because she'd like to invest in this. Budget is around 100usd a bit more or less is ok (3000-3500 thai baht --> 97-113 usd)
    3.ankle support is prioritized because she's been wearing a normal sport shoe and said that she started to feel pain in her ankle . maybe light weight and easy to wear and play (she's a girl after all)
    4.beginner but is learning to play seriously
    5.play 3-4 times a week, 2-3 hours each
    6.color: preferred white (with red decoration would be perfect) example picture onex-65 z LEX white/high red

    is this one fit the criteria 3-5?

    Had YY shoes in the past (latest the 65) and they 1) don't last long in terms of cushion, 12h badminton a week is a number and 2) they don't support very well the ankle. Might be differ for other models or the midcuts. IMO supporting and lightweight together is impossible. If she is a feather, okay, if not I would recommend a P-series Victor.

    Well, my theory in this is that she isnt wearing badminton shoes so there is no support, thus ankle pain. Therefore, the problem should be that there is no support at all not the amount of support, am I right? If that's the case, should I focus on support or on comfort and weight? I myself use Lining zen series and have to take time adapting to more weight coming from victor mid range, will there be the same problem?

    She said it was her ankle. That's why she'd like to find some good shoes.

    Sometimes ankles would feel pain if they are wrapped too tight by the shoes.
