    Does anyone know what does EX stands for in Yonex shoes?

    For example: SHB-70EX, SHB-52EX, SHB-41EX, SHB-90EX, SHB-95EX and so on...

    Does it mean extra wide?

    SHB-01MX = male
    SHB-01LX = female
    SHB-87EX = Unisex

    Lilyana Natsir used to wear the SHB85EX, pretty sure yonex marketing team wouldn't make the mistake of letting one of their most famous players wear the wrong gender of shoes.
    EX shoes tend to have gender neutral colors too, e.g. black white, grey, nothing like pink or powder blue.

    The strings, bags and clothing are EX models as well so are they all "unisex"? ;)

    haven't seen any EX strings :S
    but EX bags and clothes can very well be unisex
