    Good day

    Like the titles suggest, I am thinking of getting a new pair of shoes...

    At the moment I have 3 pairs in mind:

    1) Yonex SHB SC2EX Badminton Shoes (Black-Gold) ($40-00)

    2) Yonex SHB 92MX Badminton Shoes (Black-yellow) ($72-00)

    3) Yonex SHB 01MX Badminton Shoes (Red-white) ($84-00)

    (Please note, the price tags are +/- )

    The reason why the: Yonex SHB SC2EX Badminton Shoes (Black-Gold), is so cheap it's because it's on special...

    Now the thing is.. I asked my friends about which shoes and about shoes.. and... most of them didn't really care about shoes, but anyway, there was one that knew a bit more about badminton, and he suggested that I stay away from the: Yonex SHB SC2EX Badminton Shoes (Black-Gold), because it's a "squash" shoe... and the sole is stiff and not good and all...

    And that I should either choose the Yonex SHB 92MX Badminton Shoes (Black-yellow) or the Yonex SHB 01MX Badminton Shoes (Red-white) ...

    Okay, I can afford any one of them (have to save up for the top 2).. But I was thinking.. is it really necessary to buy the TOP one,(Yonex SHB 01MX Badminton Shoes (Red-white)
    )


    So i am very unsure about the shoes...

    If anyone can provide some kind of guidelines that would be great :)

    Thanks in advance

    I think I would go for #2/#3 because I know they have great traction,cushion, and injury prevention. Not too sure about #1. But the difference between #2 and #3 is more of preference of manoeuvring. The advertisement for #2 is lighter and has better injury prevention. But I do not think the difference is huge.

    Overall, I think I would go for #2 just because it is cheaper and the specifications are about equal with #3.

    Sorry don't know much about #1.

    Hey man

    Thanks for the reply

    Kk cool thanks

    Yeah, I was thinking about getting the second one, but being really like specific, the #3 has those two tri-angles at the lateral side of the foot.

    Which seems attractive enough :p

    But thanks anyway :D
