    Hi,

    My asics get tactic is breaking apart after 1.5 years of playing.

    Anyone know where to find a good variety of mizuno court shoes in Singapore
    at reasonable prices?

    I have seen Wave blocker 1 and 2 shoes but are there higher end series than those in Singapore also? Does Malaysia also sell mizuno shoes?

    Am thinking if i should try the SHB shoes around $130, however, i am worried about their durability(i think they are also made in china). My ASICS one was very solid, but not as comfortable as yonex.
    If mizuno shoes are more expensive than SHB, maybe SHB is more worth it.

    I saw Mizuno court shoes in Queensway , Bras Besah (10 n 10) as well as Toa Payoh SAFRA. I am not sure about the model but the price range is between 70-100 dollars. My friend's Mizuno court shoes did not last that long, around 6 months i think. My Yonex SHB 89 shoe is still in playable conditions after around 11 months.

    Mizuno Shoes

    Wave blocker and stuff are volleyball shoes. They don't sell the higher end models of badminton shoes like wavesmash, they only have wave gate and the cheaper ones.

    I called the distributor in Singapore and the woman told me that they don't carry mizuno wave smash but they can bring it in if i order 200 pairs from them....200 pairs!!! She's crazy. anyway, i found what i was looking for online and had it shipped from china. www.bbesports.com

    Hope this helps...[​IMG]

    Thanks for the replies

    Thanks for the replies.

    Maybe i will give a try to the SHB shoes. AR shoes from yonex breaks extremely easily, i think SHB shoes have much better workmanship.

    hooah, by the way, may i ask what model did you get and how much did it cost? How do you find its comfort, cushioning and durability?

    Thanks a lot.

    Mizuno Wave Smash SR

    bought the Mizuno Wave Smash SR for 610 RMB , ard 130 sing. It's good, feels natural when u wear it.

    U actually dun "feel" the shoes, it sorts of just blends in to the game. Tried it for a month now and it's still looking good. Hope it lasts...:) . Too troublesome to keep getting it from china

    The Yonex Sunrise shop at Orchard Rd Far East shopping center has the SHB 89 for sale there. But I can't remember the price and since the last time I been there was 2 months ago. I can't confirm whether they had any more stock left in store :( you can try your luck if you want. :D
