    Does anybody else share the same shoe size as i do?
    10.5 Men's (US) Wide -Reebok
    The problem i have with some shoe manufacturers is that it lacks room and width in the front/head of the shoe. Hate to play a game of badminton with my feet feeling like its bond in duct tape in a sardine can... Do any of you guys have the same issue? what badminton shoe do you recommend? Do companies like yonex, wilson, etc make some of the shoe models in wide?

    The only place I've found that carry the wide yonex shoes is shuttle house (our local selection really sucks so I buy almost exclusively online for badminton gear).

    shoes are very hard to buy online. fit is very important. if i were you, i would travel down to the south bay to the different badminton shops and try out all of them before you buy.

    SynergyBadminton in Milpitas has Yonex shoes
    RacketSupply in Cupetino has Victor shoes.

    Mizuno badminton shoes are not available in the US.

    shoes that doesn't fit you will give you nonstop agony.

    Yup thats my biggest concern when it comes to buying a new pair of badminton shoes. I know that not all manufacturer's have the same dimensions for the same size shoe. I would much rather prefer to try it on before i purchase. Im considering going to the pro-shop at East Bay Badminton @ Emeryville.
