    Available at MO09 as well

    Yes I saw these shoes at MO09 as well and they do look good but as everyone say does not look like high end shoes. Good for collecting though. My son wanted one but his size all sold out. Not sure if this was a good or bad thing....:D

    I bought one during HKG Open and cost me HKG $ 500 or around US$ 64.50
    But during MAS Open, it dropped to MAS 100 or US$ US$ 28....that sucks!!!
    Yonex guy we always deal with..said that it was not sold out during HKG Open so they dropped the prices during MAS Open...

    You should have waited. Usually shoes is much more slow moving that shirts.
