    does someone have a chart converter? lolz, i've heard that yonex court shoes fit differently than others...like size wise 1 smaller or something...but i'm hoping to be getting the 100mxs ;)

    SHB100 MX's over here! They're great! Apparently they're a little stiff (which I don't mind) and so far they have been superb. great grip, arch support (which I never even knew could be so strong) and great fit. be wary that the sizing with yonex is a little awkward if you plan on getting a pair.

    SH100Ltd, very light and grips/breaks wells on my sliding moves (not sure if I am supposed to glide into a shot, but I do when I am reaching).

    great ventilation : you can feel the air when you are walking with it

    a little thin on the sole where the ball of the feet is, at least to me but still pretty good.

    i tried tennis shoes on the badminton court and badminton shoes on a tennis court. The experience is bad for both instances meaning that badminton shoes felt sluggish on tennis court and tennis shoes sluggish on badminton court.

    So I think there is something in the design of the badminton shoes that meets the need of moving around the badminton court specifically.

    I wear Yonex SHB-100 MX. They are very good for me. Great grip and the shoe feels comfortable. As far as sizing goes, I bought these online without trying them in an actual store. They fit me fine (I stuck to my normal shoe size), but they seem to be a bit bigger, but not too much that I can't deal with.

    yonex 98mx. great looking shoe and relatively cheap compared to the newer yonex shoes (100's and 99's) but the quality isnt so good. the soles and the insides are wearing out pretty fast after about 3 months of continuous use.

    when the insoles are worn out already, try the yonex sockliners as replacements. they are better than the original insoles!

    tried the blue ladies 100 regular model.
    bought the 100 Ltd instead.

    Reasons:
    1. thinner tongue: I kind of like that in the beginning for 100 Ltd and thought the padded tongue in the regular edition was too bulky. But now I think it is better to have a padded tongue because I can feel the stress on the top of my feet when I tie my shoe laces too tight.

    2. cooler : definitely 100ltd feels cooler, i tried both of them on a hot summer afternoon.

    3. the ribbed shoe liner : really really comfortable, regular edition the liner did not feel as good.

    Overall:
    Still like the 100Ltd better.
