    I know that shoe sizes vary a lot...
    My foot is exactly 25 cm long and usually wear euro 40 size.
    But for example if I want Victor shoes, I have to take euro 39 size. I know that, becouse they have a beautiful table with the insole size in cm.

    And what about Yonex? Do they have such a table?
    Thank you!

    well, yonex does mention that...
    I'm a size 45-46, and inside my (yonex) shoe it says:
    euro 46, cm 30.0 (and also the UK and US sizes)

    Than I suppose 25,5 cm is good for me (EU 39, US 7,5)...

    err, yeah, probably...
    You could try and email your distributor/reseller, he can look at the models he has in stock.
    but it's best to try em on before you buy them, I think...

    When I first tried my Hi-tec switchbacks, I knew I could get them at ~65 euros online. But I'd never tried them before. So off I went to the local squash-place, to try a pair, bought it for 80 euros. and then ordered soem extra pairs online, well worth the extra 15 euros to try them on.
    Or, you could be rude, try them on, and not buy them ;) but I knew the nice lady who helped me...:eek:

    Yes, but there are no badminton shoes locally, so...

    Thank you :)

    Different shoe models have different fit - some are wide and others narrow in the front. You're taking a risk if you buy online as the shoe size may not be correct.

    I think since your foot is 25cm, then you should buy Yonex size 26cm. although 25.5 will give you a perfect fit, usually one's foot will expand when playing and hence the extra room will give you better fit and your foot will have enough breathing space. also, as most of the newer Yonex shoes have the ergoshaped head, these seem to be slightly narrower at the top so a little extra room is also good.

    hope that helps out :)

    there are sites which give comparison of shoe sizes for Yonex, eg. 26cm = UK/US/???? sizes
