    That's a nice colourway, I must say. One of six I've seen for that shoe!

    been wearing yonex since i started playing seriously in 2008 and a few years ago started wearing mizunos. had a pair of victor and that thing doesn't vent, so it smelled horrible. now i also added a pair of li ning shoes as well as a pair of asics court shoes.

    Wow that's a lot. I started with Asics, then Yonex SHB65FTs, Victor 9000ACE that hurt my feet and didn't feel it had as much cushion so I sold it, and now my main ones are SHBF1N, the lightest of any of my shoes and still very comfortable with enough cushion.

    Why the wrong colour - I have a green pair of 9000ACE plus these will go well with the pink Thomas Cup kit!

    I can't talk - I've got the pink TC shirt... but going all pink?:)

    Paul will save us - he got the green ones, and wears the yellow kit!

    Yonex SHB-83W, the only 4e width indoor court should made, as far as I know. I did recently pick up some Asics Gel Rocket shoes for only $40, but have yet to try them. I bought them a little bigger, as they are not wide shoes, but they feel alright. At the same time I also bought some Asics tennis shoes for pickleball and they have been great, so I expect the Gel Rockets will be good, too.

    Hi! [MENTION=39250]gundamzaku[/MENTION] Which Asics Court Shoes Do UseFor Badminton
    Are they Approproate, which One Would You Recommend..?
    Can you tell Which Mizuno Shoes Are Strictly Usable as Badminton Shoes.
    As You Have Used Several Badminton Shoes with Different Brands I think You Are in Better Position to Give a Honest Unbiased Review about Them
    Kindly also Mention which are your Favorite among All that you have Used, with Justification
    PS : Don't Mind ,I'm Little Bit Curiously Interested to Buy one & Researching Every Forum that Speaks Badminton Hopefully this is the Appropriate Hub For Discussion
    Thanks For Going Through!! :)

    [MENTION=114192]DStyle[/MENTION] Surely it looks good, have you used any Other Brand of badminton shoes?
    How do you rate this Shoe as Compared to which you used earlier?
    Please Give Unbiased Honest Review. My previous Yonex Ultima sc5 Pro Torned off..need to Buy New One.
    I Stay in India and Mizuno/Asics Shoes are Rarely Available So i will have to order it from abroad..
    Only in case if it feels Absolutely Necessary..
    Thanks for Reading mate. :)

    hi, sorry for the late response but i have the asics gel-domain from www.eastbay.com
    this is a great website with A HUGE selection of shoes for almost every sport. the asics are ok, great support and comfort but very clumsy, not nimble at all.

    the mizuno i have are the Fangs and they are great. from my experience with mizuno from football cleats to softball gloves to badminton shoes, what i know is that mizuno leather goods are ready to be used out of the box and never needs break-in period. the mizuno shoes i have are very comfortable and very support. i was quite surprised that it would be that supportive since it's not as "beefy" as other badminton shoes like the li nings or the asics.

    unfortunately, i have wide feet, so i'm clumsy to begin with. but i find the yonex shb-pc01 the most nimble mainly because the back of the shoe is really low compared to other shoes, plus the weight is fairly light and it runs narrow. tho my feet sorta hurts a bit after 3-4hrs of play, it provides great support for me and i would like to believe that it helps me get around the court a bit better, a bit faster :p
