    hey has anyone been to a big Sport Chek or National etc and seen these indoor court shoes by Nike? They're white with the gum outsole. Any tried them out before? I recall that they were between $65 and $80 CAD. I know they're not badminton specific shoes, but would they be a good starting point? Thanks all.

    i think that is pretty much the only style available retail.
    in North America, indoor court shoes are not a big market except for stuff like volleyball or indoor soccer, but in that case, people would go for indoor soccer SPECIFIC shoes.

    LOL, slide gets to me sometimes cos i play on hardwood courts. Like when they polish the floor nice and tacky its good, but after a while, the courts get all dusty and people start falling. Hey zero, ne idea if the gum sole is affected by dust and dirt?

    Bosch,

    I think I know what your're talking about. I actaully went to a Nike store (USA), and they had a shoe which had all gum on the sole. Well, it looks more like it's for the gym floors. The shoes will loose a bit of the grip if there is dirt and stuff like that.

    I have Nike court shoes but they were catagorized as a tennis shoe, since they were not gummed shoes. I may get the gummed ones if I need them.

    Oh I just bought them in the US today!!

    It's the Nike Multi-Court III shoe. I bought two pairs!! It was selling for 19.95 (used to be 53 US). I gottne two of them becuase I would get 50% off for the seocnd pair so I gotten two!! yes!!! Should be pretty good with the shoe. The trackion will vary depending on the floor condition.
