    my opinion is that the shoes are not worth buying. materials and quality not really good for a pair of S$40-50 shoes.

    I used a Apacs Power Cushion ... Quite light and the cushion is quite okay. Bought it for RM70. lasted me for about 4 months after daily dose of rough abuse.

    owned a pair of apacs and proace shoes. gave them away because of the poor cushioning. the outer soles are of different quality from the yonex top models. wasted my $.

    Are apacs and pro ace shoes the same in terms of performance and specs? i mean they are like brother and sister company right? Some of the pro ace shoes i have seen are quite nice, like a SHB-100 limited edition clone. Price tag, Rm120 before discount, probably a 20% off.

    Better cushion..

    IMHO, cushioning performance is Yonex's hands down, but in terms of lightness and price, Apac's a winner.

    Comparing my SHB100MX and my Apac's Cushion Power, and the fact that i have a serious issue with my knee's ligament, (old football/soccer injury), I can say that with the SHB's I am more confident in my footwork especially during lunging.

    With Apac's i can feel the lightness, but my feet keeps slipping from under me, and i had quite a few bad episodes with it.

    Do give your review of the Apacs shoe, okay, afham07??

    i would say that apacs shoes are decent.but the quality n grip of their soles n materials are questionable.durability is also an issue.
    for the money,get a cheap yonex n buy some cushioning insoles if the need arises.
    of course,if u hav more money,get a power cushion.much better

    For me, i would rather get a high end yonex shoe. I currently own the SHB99Ltd for a year plus and it has not given me problem so far. I used to wear clones(shoes) from apacs, but they usually last only about 3months. The grip of the shoe tends to wear out rather quickly and the sides break open. Investing in a pair of high end yonex shoe is a better choice. Although you will feel the pinch when u buy it, but you will enjoy the benefits for a longer period of time.

    After give a try on court a few times, I would say for RM65, Apacs is good enough but of course cant beat yonex high end series.

    conclusion, if u have money, get the high end of yonex or if u have limited budget, better get apacs rather than yonex. :).
