    -mizuno wave smash rg3,
    -mizuno wave fang,
    -mizuno wave gate 4smv,
    -mizuno wave vaster 2

    btw I've heard that some mizuno badminton shoes allow moisture to escape from the bottom of the shoe, any of the above shoes do this?

    I've only used the wave gate 2 and the wave smash sg. The moisture system you are referring to is tagged "intercooler". I prefer the wave smash a lot more than the wave gate due to it's much lower stance (at the expense of some cushioning). The intercooler feature works better but it's not like the wave smash is that warm. Another important difference is, I feel the the wave smash supports the ankle much better despite being lower cut than my wave gate.

    The rg, AFAIK, is the higher cut version of the sg.

    this intercooler feature is absent in the wave smash model? Which shoe would you say is lighter of the two that you have?

    Thanks
