    Curious if anyone has tried SOTX shoes. The S-28 model looks nice.

    Sotx-JES900A

    Hey there,

    I have the S-28 and S-18, the shoes are very comfortable and good quality.
    I would recommend trying a pair.:)

    Just curious, what size shoes do you wear?
    I have a Sotx JES900A size 9.5 autographed by Taufik, Peter Gade, and Lin Dan for sale. If anyone is interested, please message me.
    I had it autographed at the 2005 World Championships.:)

    Thanks Viper,

    Which of the two do you prefer? What are the main differences?

    Prefer the S-28

    I like the s-28 better, color is ok.
    Quality is the same on both, the S-18 seems to get dirty faster cause it has more white.

    Half the price, half the comfort.

    Just kidding, they are actually nice.

    The size is 1/2 size smaller than true size.

    The shoes are durable, semi-comfortable, light weight, good grip on dusty floors.

    Guys gotta get S-28 and gals should wear S-18.

    I was once told 37 (more comfort) is an upgraded version of 18. Maybe consider it as well. ;)

    What do you mean by "semi comfortable"? What's the standard for comfortable in your scale? Any particular shoe modle? :rolleyes:

    Also, how's the protection (e.g cushion) for SOTX shoes?

    I'm wearing some sotx right now. The size difference really depends on what you wear normally. I'm a new balance shoe person so the difference to close to a full size for me (size 12). I got them for 40$ and they are pretty comfortable overall though a bit narrow for me. They just require a bit of breaking in, but otherwise they feel great for me.

    I got my pair from www.badmintonsource.com which turned out to be a mistake for the better. They sent me the wrong pair so I got a 20$ discount off of them. Otherwise you can get them from www.ibuysports.com for 60$ish.
