    Bao Chunlai is wearing a pair of Yonex shoes in the current All England Open. May I know which model is this pair of shoes? Thanks :)

    Hmm, plain Yonex logo socks, it should be #1855 then.

    I think you are right. I previousley though they were the ones others have mentioned, but they do not have wavy lines like those in the picture+ the logo on the tongue is the same shape.

    This asks the question why are yonex still letting him wear them when he has moved from Junior team to senior team? AFAIK he has wore them since he started.

    however, kason copied the original yonex shb90 LOL
    look at the sole, the yellow part is dyed gum where as yonex is made of real natural gum. HOwever, the kason copy look so similar to shb90 that i doubt even yonex official could tell from far away so bao got away with it.

    Yes. At least I saw one store still has it on the webpage (even thought the sizes available are limited).
