    lol yeah I think I just like the colour...

    really I should choose based on comfort, & support...
    Form over function... I will see if I can find out more about them in the meantime... but so far I have been very happy with the shb99ltd except that mine is about half a size to small for me :p

    Yea...I think Ascis in general are a bit higher off the ground compared to yonex. Ascics are just indoor shoes not badminton exclusive so you gotta expect it. Almost twisted my ankle first time I played with a pair of gel rockets after changing to them...i'm getting used to it but probably looking to switch back to a pair of yonex or similar type soon...lol:p

    LOL... I dont think that is entirely the case, but depending on the lighting conditions, the flash can illuminate something more than it really appears to be in person... eg. Yonex Wine Red grap... looks bright red in the catalogue & in ads. , but is actually wine red in person :p

    wow...nice...never seen these around...price isn't too bad too..i mean over $100US is normal these days for a pair of shoes anyway. how come japan gets all the good stuff? but yea in general asics are just indoor.The difference between normal indoor and badminton are the arch area...badminton requires lower centre of gravity for stability...but wow these shoes are pretty nice especially the "hyper rushing" pair...someone tell me where to get these :p .

    I'm very fond of the asics gel blade. Yeah they are general indoor court shoes, but are targeted more towards the sports of badminton and squash, which are very similar in terms of grip and support needed during movement. They look great as well. Only downside is that the left in sole (inside of left foot) does wear out quickly, but thats because i lunge alot.

    Yeah I suppose, but the shoe was advertised as having extremely tough outer material (called rhynoskin) and I expected it to last me longer than it did. I played for about 3 hours total, and a hole the size of a 5 pence coin had already developed...

    I actually recently realized that a team mate of mine has these shoes and as you pointed out with the yonex as an example, the actual product isn't nice and bright as the picture. The color is actually a very dull bluey color. But you never know, if you play in a super well lit area with fluorecent lights they could look just as cool. btw I also saw a guy with the "hyper rushing" pair....they look even better in real life...drools:D
