    If you prefer excellent cushioning I vote for Gel Sensei 2 or Gel Blast 2. I have them both and they are also very durable.

    Have Gel Blade 2 and love them but hard to find. What make's the others better as I feel it
    would be hard to one up them with blue Superfeet in them. Durability is excellent but like
    to have a backup for most things. Thanks in advance ps have high arches.

    Blade definitely. Sensei is designed for heavyweight players. Many volleyball players use this type (as Martin Lebl, "big boy" playing Italian A1 with good 110 kg). I use Sensei 2 as a universal shoe for both badminton and volleyball.

    I bought a pair of Blade 2 on-line with the same size of Yonex I used to wear. It turned out that the Blade 2 is half-the-size bigger than the Yonex's ones. Is it common across most of the Asics models?

    Thanks Sealman:)

    So it's the opposite in your cases, right?

    Your info is very useful cos there's no retailers for Asics' court shoes in Hong Kong and I have to get them on-line.

    Yes. I wear half size bigger for the above asics/yonex models as I find the front part of the shoes are narrower.

    Surprised to hear that Asics court shoes are not available in Hong Kong. Not sure if these Hong Kong and China contacts might help:

    I'm also planning to buy an ASICS shoe online but can't decide which size that I should be ordering.
    It's very confusing. Need some advice about the sizing please...

    My current badminton shoe is Yonex SHB-100 LTD
    size CM=27.0 / EUR=42 / UK=8.5 / US=10.5 which still
    have a little bit of room left for my feet but not too much.

    My current futsal shoe is Nike Shoe Nike T-3
    size CM=26.5 / EUR=42 / UK=7.5 / US=8.5 which it
    fit just nice and there is no any room left for my feet
    but not too fit and small until uncomfortable.

    Just got the Blade 3 this week, its the best baddy shoes i have so far. Its very light (350g), very flexible (so it does not hurt your feet), and the best of all its cushion is very2 nice/soft. Looks like i will stick with Asics (as well as LN and Flypower) for a long time.
    Oh BTW i have not tried other Asics baddy shoes yet, so cant comment which one is the best.

    Hi guys,

    Got a pair of Gel Forza few weeks ago. Try it for an hour last week. Not good enough for an impression. Will test it more today...:)
