    Correction: Most of the shops here that sell Mizuno shoes are not for badminton, they are mostly running and volleyball shoes.

    not really easy to find. in Ipoh mizuno is sold in Ipoh Parade but they only have volleyball shoes. in KL you can check out pertama complex. again, lots of volleyball shoes. not sure if they have the wave lightning but you can go check it out. another place i found in Kl is world of sports in SOGO. chances are all world of sports outlets sells mizuno shoes. but alas, they are also selling volleyball shoes for court sports. i hope it helps you a bit. i dont know the price since i was only looking for the mizuno wave gate and thus that was the only shoes i know the price of. but it is safe to say that a wave lightning will be around RM200 to RM250. happy shopping :D

    my guess, mizuno dont has specific shoe for badminton. those are indoor court shoe and are suitable for badminton. however, one need to seek properly which is the best suit for badminton.:)

    cool catalogue of running shoes. there's some awesome looking shoes in there. but i dont understand. what help did you need with the catalogue? are you asking why there's no 7KM-XXXXX shoes in there? i think that is because that catalogue is for running shoes by mizuno only. no other types of shoes are there. mizuno have a lot of other types of shoes like baseball shoes, futsal shoes, volleyball shoes, golf shoes etc etc. let me give you another site to check out :

    http://www.mizuno.jp/catalog/

    check the badminton option. the subsequent options are unreadable due to the usage of japanese characters. but via trial and error i have discovered the last option is the shoes dept. try and check it out, and then you can check out the volleyball section too. again you have to trial and error the options. :)

    BTW Wave Lightning 3 is a badminton shoe, not sure if it's classed as indoor (i.e 7KM-XXXXX or 9KV-XXXXX)

    that is true, cause that not many people really know about mizuno's shoes and where to get that exact model. here, we are just enthusiast players and not shoppers nor shop owner. you need to be patient if you are just wait for reply in BC. if you out there, going shopping from shop to shop, you may the answer in 3 days.

    yes i agree. if you want the price immediately you have to go out and see for yourself. if you are hoping for some help since you cant go out yourself, you must be patient. there might even be a chance that you wont get the answer. people here are not shoes sellers. we take time out to go to the shop ourselves to get the price. i already gave you the range. it should be good enough. you can budget that range. and no, wave lightning is not a badminton shoes. it is a volleyball shoes but as i have posted before, volleyball shoes can be used for badminton too since both are shoes for indoor courts. however their sole designs are a bit different. please check out the site i posted above.

    Before you get upset even further, i just like to ask you to read the thread section, you would immediately know that this section is not for just 'enthusiast players'



    I have been patience, my last post might have implied otherwise and if it did i didn't mean to, i always appreciate help given to me by fellow members and I thank them from bottom my heart, obviously you thought otherwise!

    if just answering the question on this post, there have been answers posted before. if you read them you will see there's pertama kompleks, world of sports in SOGO (which is in KL), world of sports branches (i think one in subang parade, you can check the net for the address), GV sports in puchong. :) plus some response is better than no response at all, dont you think so? :)
