    Both are good. Choose the design & comfort that fit most.
    Asics is nice of its design & comfort, it accommodates wide feet too, but not as detail as mizuno which been categorize into 3E & 4E

    for me, i will prefer Asics over Mizuno.
    Asics is more comfortable and better traction. Mizuno, is kind of stiff, harder to move......:)

    Asics has ABS with EBD, TCS too. Perform like HKS & Michelin

    Mizuno has the above, just that like Mugen & Silverstone.

    Hehehehehe........

    How we wish the Gel Sensei model would be selling over here ! I'm craving for it.

    I would say this Gel Sensei like Mercedez/Citroen air-suspension system, upbeat any top line absorber out there, kekekekkeke......

    You can try here:

    www.stringersports.com.au

    However, thats an Australian site, I'm not sure if they do international shipping.

    That said, asics are very expensive compared to yonex shoes. Unfortunately yonex is hard to source here, so I went with asics. I also wear asics for runners, quite like their gel system.

    Either way its www.stringersports.com.au, prices are in Australian dollars.

    Hehehe, the problem is not becoz i couldnt find any asics or mizuno here. The problem is one of my friend, his shoe size is UK13, hehehe which is mostly impossible to find in South East Asia :D

    So, I look at that website, size 13uk is available. So maybe this is a solution for him eventhough the price is a bit expensive

    Yep, well thats the prices in Australia, as with anything else, it'd be cheaper in Asia.

    My gel-sensei 2, cost me $160, from a different shop, on the scale of things, yonex shb-100's would be cheaper, but yonex isn't really carried here.
