    This shoe is available at Royal suntec for only 50 SGD. i asked for a pair, but when i tried it on...disappointed...cushioning was bad. si i didn't get it...if you go further back you'll find Asics Gel Rocket both for Men's and Women's. around 75 SGD but extremely better feel and cushioning than these adidas.

    Dear Demolidor,

    My shoes size is US9.5 / Euro43 / 275 mm. Do you think it would be advisable for me if I opt for 1 size higher (i.e., US10 / Euro44 / 280 mm) if I want to purchase this shoes from rakuten ?

    Renmazuo,

    I purchased from this Link =
    ALL badminton products = www.sunfast.jp

    Adidas BD Feather product = http://www.sunfast.jp/SHOP/Adi-G51974.html

    Their pricing for badminton products are discounted up to 30% (applicable for rackets, shuttles, apparels, footwears, bags, etc)
    The discount is available without any requirement of minimum purchase. Therefore, any customer can enjoy the benefit of discounted prices, even if they only buy 1 item.


    Considering Sunfast does not provide services to offshore/foreign customers, I appoint japanese middleman/proxy services to buy the product from Sunfast. The middleman/proxy shall also arrange the delivery of the goods to the designated addressee / recipients.

    Link for Middleman Services - http://riderproxy.com/

    The professional services fees are set at fixed rate of 7% of the product's price.


    Last but not least, in order to minimize my personal costs / expenses. I arrange the delivery to the address of my office's colleague in Singapore. The singaporean import duties (applicable to almost all kind of imported goods) are set at 7% flat rate of GST (goods and services tax), and it is calculated against the CIF prices.
    This is intended to avoid the applicable import duties / customs and excises in my country, and it is so much cheaper comparing to my country's rates.



    Disclaimer = I am merely a customer, and thus shall not be held liable, on whatsoever grounds, for any transactions involving any of the aforementioned websites.

    :D

    I believe you will only need to pay 7% GST if your goods + CIF cost more than S$400.

    i just managed to went to queensway shopping center and was surprised by the range of adidas badminton shoes available there compared to malaysia

    but i end of getting a assics fel rocket for 95 SGD

    the adidas badminton shoes just don't rly fit well compared to the assics. so the extra 20 SGD was rly worth the money
