    Looks good for the price. I'm on the mizuno wave bolt and feels kinda chunky...from pic, this mixing looks light... :) no harm trying for 79 bux...

    These are volleyball shoes so beware that they might not have enough lateral support, but would be good for jumping! Mizunos are a very good brand of badminton shoes, check out Wave Fang or Wave Smash; good price and good quality badminton specific shoes!

    last week i had a try-on of Wave Twister at the World of Sport..........

    my usual size is 26.5cm, tried it.......was tight for me.

    tried 27cm.......funny thing even tighter than 26.5cm!!!

    the insole was non-removable......

    would not recommend it as quality was inconsistent, from this experience.

    hmmz......seldom heard b4 shoes sizing will be wrong lehz....maybe u nvr untighten the shoelaces properly as the 27cm shoes might be laced up more tightly hence u felt it's tighter?

    This model is in-door shoes. Can be used either volleyball or badminton.
    I saw 2 series at World of Sports, Wave Twister sell for S$69 and Wave Twister 2 sell for S$79.
    I tried both of them. I found the sides of Wave Twister is more stable than Wave Twister 2. But 2 seems more soft and comfort.
    Finally I brought Wave Twister. Haven’t wear on court yet. :)

    i bought a pair of Wave Twister 2.

    The cushion is quite good. But the in-sole is not very good. The grip of the in sole is not good, and the in-sole can't be replaced.

    Lateral support is also non existent.
