    David Nalbandian and Lleyton Hewitt endorses the SHT-305 (3rd and 4th shoe from the left).

    Have seen some players wear this pair of tennis shoes for badminton. According to a local shop owner, the soles are non-marking.

    the bottom of the shoes for a badminton shoe has gum rubber, and tennis have a different rubber on the bottem of the shoe. A darker color. I am pretty positive about this.

    the weight of the shoes is noticable for sure thats why it would not make sense to wear a tennis shoe to play badminton.

    the thing is, tennis shoes have better cushioning and support than badminton shoes. just only the weight issue.
