    I've bought these pairs of shoes WHEN THEY FIRST came out to the US and I must say it's one of the best shoes or THEE best shoe. It looks tight and the gripping and movement is comfortable. I don't have muscle fatigue too..!

    I heard that this shoe is only meant for the court used the world class tournament (greenish-rubber court?).

    How does it feel when used on the regular court (wooden). Is it slippery?

    Not unless you apply A LOT of force to your stop, or the wooden courts are dusty. Other than that, these shoes really show the response and the grip I need to play hard in my game.

    Souces tell me that these shoes and any other Yonex badminton shoes should ONLY be worn on the courts. Gripping is great and they last a long time. Dont' wear them on cement or places with water, oil, guck or any other stuff as the grip will fade if you step on them. That's why they should be only COURT ONLY shoes.

    How do you compare this shoe with Dragon Fly?

    I am currently using Dragon Fly, made in China. It's a very cheap shoes (only $3 - bought it in Indonesia). But it's very suitable for badminton play.

    The sole is all rubber and the shoes is extremely light.

    I never use my badminton shoes off court until they are too broken to stand the strain of a game.
