    from what i know forza shoes arnt as durable as yonex shoes, this comming from kyle foley who has coached me and is sponsored by forza and uses almost all forza. he said that they wernt and so did lots of other people that i know, some people havnt had trouble with them but on average a good majority of them will wear out faster from what i have seen depending on the level of play your at.

    Why don't you just go to Tad's in Vancouver and grab a pair of SHB99? I think it's on sale right now for $109.

    Forza shoes are superb, i am a friend of someone at Forza and they are comfy, light and just like the yonex ones. In my opnion, they are the same as shb99s, however if you want a different look, try forza.

    Hope this helps.

    I think the bottom of the range (relates to middle-top of yonex range) shoes retail for around £40 which is cheap for a pair of badminton shoes. And the performance is identical to yonex, here is a UK website: http://forzabadminton.co.uk/footwear.asp giving details of the shoe. I've tried them myself and honestly can say they are awesome! There is a £10 difference between the sh550s and the sh800's, £10 is simply for cosmetics in my opinion.

    Leo :)
