    That is incorrect, it's a low end shoe ... a replica SHB-9x if you will :D.

    You kidding? Eric is usually quite reliable with his information I thought. He just quoted that he'd sell me these shoes for US$115 including shipping - that doesn't sound "low end" to me. Where's your source of information please?

    By the way, is there actually a direct replacement/upgrade for the SHB-92MX? I thought the SHB-01's were it, but they are completely different - "Quattro Fit" as opposed to "Ergoshape". Ergoshape suits me best because I have relatively wide feet.

    I saw them on a UK website voor <50GBP a while back. Though at first they might be a successor to SHB-92 as well when I first saw them ... but the lack of "technologies" in them lead me to believe otherwise. Else I'd have already posted them by now ;).


    Here is the listing (a different colour then when I saw them there first, I think): http://www.directbadminton.co.uk/Pr...-Mens-Court-Shoes&NavID=316&FromSearchPage=No

    There's a seller on eBay with them as well and at $98AUD that's on par with SHB-44 and 74 vs $155 for the F1's and $180 for the 01's for example

    What lack of "technologies"? Looks almost identical to SHB-92?

    Yes "almost". I hope you were already told Santa Claus doesn't exist ;). This shoe is more like the SHB-F1R (F1 Replica) so maybe there will be an actual SHB-95MX as well.

    SHB-92:
    • + 3-Layer Power Cushion
    • + ToughBrid
    • + Hyper msLite
    • + Round Sole
    • + Power Graphite
    • + Power Cushion Insole CF
    • + Ergoshape
    • + Hexagrip Sole
    • + Tough Guard III

    SHB-95s:

    • + Power Cushion
    • + Round Sole
    • + Hexagrip Sole
    • + Lateral Claw
    • + Ergoshape

    Here is a scan from the upcoming Autumn/Winter TW catalogue I just bumped into (you can just about make out the power cushion is only single layer, not [3 layers] like a top model; save & zoom). Also noticed a SHB-85WEX there but no "new" tag so perhaps I missed the news there :D. Can't get a google result on it though ...

    I wonder if the SHB-92MX shoes will continue to be manufactured and sold then?

    I think it has already stopped production, not listed on any Yonex homepage anymore. Maybe the F1 already was the replacement for it?

    Found another colourway for SHB-95s, as sold in Europe @ Decathlon for ~€50 euro, plus the blue one from Direct Sport. Saw the original/normal colour sold @ $620HKD at Luxis Sport website just now
