    Guys, bring out your shoes and upload their pictures here. I guess, it will be very interesting to see other brands of shoes, other than yonex here.
    Remember to give your reviews! Dont be afraid if your pair is a pair of low-end shoes, they are shoes as well.Any brands, Any badminton shoes. Come On! Bring them out!

    Well, here is my shoe.

    Model: Yonex SHB100LTD (first generation)
    Soles: Stock Insoles from Yonex
    Support: Proace heel cups
    Laces: Changed to black (don't want it to be too common)

    Review: I had this SHB100LTD for about 8hrs of play. Guess i am not used to it yet. The 99LTD that i had feels more snug, and more flexible. This 100LTD is abit stiffer, but its my current shoe now. But the round sole of the 100LTD is great. Will play with it more, and give a better review.:)

    100LTD will be as comfortable as 99LTD.

    Here are my paírs...

    Hi-Tec "Switchback"

    I think they are good shoes, but I need a little break-in period, too. This could also be, because I´m flat footed.
    I bought the yellow pair a few weaks ago, since I recognized, that Hi-Tec will not produce it any longer, I decided to buy an additional pair.

    You can still find them in the U.S. at local squash sites such as:

    Yes, but they are, relatively speaking, a bit heavy and they get hot compared to the bellwether, SHB-100 with Super Feet Blue.

    they get hot?
    what do you mean, and how do you mean that?
    i'm assuming this is from the friction with the ground when you lunge and stuff.
    i've never noticed my badminton shoes feeling hot before, can you actually feel these getting hot on the soles of your feet?

    That's because normal badminton specific shoes have, relatively speaking, good to excellent ventilation while ventilation on the Hi-Tec is just adequate.
