    Those are Asics Gel Domain. I get a lot of stuff at canuckstuff.com. I find they are quite heavy duty - good for big guys, but a little bulky compared to Yonex.

    I tried to find out what was the difference between table tennis and badminton/squash shoes, but the administrators made sure my topic didn't go live. So anyway I ended up with these and to be honest from what I tried these shoes are by far the best and cheapest. They are Banda Pro Speed. Can be picked for about 20 euros. They don't have impressive colour but at that price you can pick x3 pairs compared to Yonex or Asics top models. Flexible, very good grip, low to the ground, no cushioning, average support, wide feet are welcome.

    That's not true.
    The administrators didn't do anything to 'kill your topic'.

    The forum's electronic filters didn't like your first post.
    However, after a read-through, I manually approved it.

    Had you checked, you would have found it.
    But, of course, you didn't check ;)

    It's here... exactly where you created the thread.

    Oh I see it now. Well thank you and my apologies but I really wanted to buy something fast hehehe. In UK everything is hard to find when you require specific stuff. I can see why most people in Europe are limited to Asics, Adidas, Hi-Tec.

    My 99s are about to go as well. How does the 100 compare with the 99?

    I'm still using my SHB 100's and the 755, not had the chance to use the apacs ones yet.

    I'm gonna wait till one of the Yonex's breaks down before I "officiate" the other two =p.

    However, for initial impressions, I'll get back to you later.

    Well, yonex claim the hexagonal pattern gives better grip (I think they say it's like 4-5% more grip) than the zig-zag pattern, but personally I think you won't really notice the difference:p. I know I didn't:p!
