    HI, i'm new in this forum! there is just one question i want to ask about these shoes.

    I saw them at Sportscheck the other day, and i was like "HOLY COW,:eek: these ARE the best CASUAL looking shoes, they look so plain, yet so sexy..:p "

    So did anyone try this while playing badminton? although they look so casual, they ARE supposed to be tennis shoes with non-marking soles and GEl inner soles...

    janet used to have some of those. the sole is pretty thin and stiff, not much cushioning. they could be used for badminton, but i would only recommend using them on a wooden floor or other well padded floor. if the gym floor is of bad quality, then you will soon find that your knees will start to ache.

    Kswiss are supposed to be one of the better shoes out there for cushioning and lateral stability and infact my physiotherapist recommended them as well as the people who made my orthotics.Yes they are heavier but sometimes the idea is better construction if you are prone to alot of jarring motions such as in badminton.I was pleased with my old pair.

    k-swiss used to be rather popular in singapore many years ago, but maybe for some reasons, it had hardly appeared in singapore anymore. i remembered these models shown in pictures are worn by those schooling in the past, quite cool.

    may i know why kswiss decided to use the 5 stripes design? which company comes first with the stripes idea: adidas or kswiss? and is there any relation?
