    It is a volleyball shoe. This is fine if you don't mind a heavier, higher shoe with great cushioning. However, at 150 lbs, normally I can't flex some of these Mizuno Wave cushioning systems. Most of them are built for heavy loads of guys over 6 ft tall. Maybe try a simpler design like a Wave Rally? They are all fairly similar.

    Mizuho Wave Fang series are more suitable for badminton than the Wave Lightning series.

    Try Mizuno Wave Hurricane 3. This is a nice pair of shoe which suitable for badminton. The back cushion is good to support your leg. 1129e686ce54ab3a294f01.jpg 11aae6ac332c600c428e18.jpg 11fde682fd2c600ce3781e.jpg 1144e686ce54ab3a294f01.jpg 11e4e682fd2c600ce3781e.jpg

    wave twister 4 is nice, very light. lots of space in toebox. i am using extra insoles!
    grip on these is better than my asics gel-rocket. very grippy on court.

    Mizuno is somewhat confusing for their shoes category. They categories their shoe to indoor court which didnt tell its for badminton/volley/etc.
    The shop seller even more confusing. Some say this model for volley yet other shop say for volley/badminton.

    I'm afraid I can't agree with you. As far as I know, Mizuno badminton shoes come with a model no. "71GA...." or "7KM....".

    The reason for my thinking is that few of their official site dont have badminton category like
    https://mizuno.id/
    https://www.mizuno.com/sg/en-us/home
    https://emea.mizuno.com/eu/en/home/

    Then again when googling around about Mizuno Badminton shoe, we would find shoes like
    Wave Lightning
    Wave Hurricane
    Wave Tornado
    Wave Momentum

    The confusing part, some seller would say its volleyball shoes, some other say it also badminton shoes. When we look at their official site, i
    All those classified on indoor court shoes or volleyball shoes.

    This thread really needs some waking up and unlike Yonex the lack of reviews is also making it difficult to make purchases,this I the reason I too eventually ended up purchasing 65z2 instead of Wave Claw.
