    Believe Prince just released this pair of badminton shoes in Singapore. Cost around S$45 or US$30. I tried it on and thought it was quite cushioned and soft. Was tempted to buy but resisted eventually. :)

    That's my latest pair of shoes.. was using the Yonex SHB99 before this.

    I can honestly say its one of my best shoes I've ever had. First time I'm wearing Prince, I've tried Yonex, Nike, Hi-Tec before.. but I think I'm going to stick to this pair of shoes. I find it light, easier to 'fly' around the court, and its flexible. Plus the grip is excellent, no sliding around, not even the first time I wore it(Yonex shoes usually needs some breaking in). If you drag your feet you get the squeaky sound easily. :p

    Of course, I really like it mainly because it's light. Others may find the sole too thin for their liking though, but I prefer thin soles.

    Excellent buy. :) Haha, yes I really am pleased with this pair of shoes.

    Those are whipper grips i guess. I tried them before, but felt they are rather slippery.

    I took the photo at the Pacific distributor. Understand from the boss that the whipper grips are produced in the same factory as Pacific.
