    Mizuno wave bolt is not a pair of multi-purpose indoor shoes. It is for volleyball You should ask for the model number. If the number starts at 7KM-xxxxx. The shoes are for badminton. If it starts at 9KV-xxxxx, it is for volleyball. When you look for a pair of badminton shoes from Mizuno, you should check the model number first. If you look at the bottom of the wave bolt. You will see the material they use is for volleyball. Specially, the middle supporter (the plastic plate at the middle will be too hard for badminton). And if you look at the design of the shoe's bottom, you will see that there is no feature is for badminton at all.
    Just my opinions.

    A small question, how is the sizing between the gel blade 3 and the progressive?
    With yonex sometimes the fit is slightly different (like, between the 102 and F1 model), if I'm a size 42 in the gel blade, am I also a size 42 with the progressive's?

    Gel blast 4 was good but a bit heavier than blade 3. Have more lateral traction. Good for me just after ACL reconstruction.
