    Default Yonex SHB-65FT or Yonex SHB-102LTD?

    Hey guys!

    I'm planning on buying a pair of shoes and I can't decide between these two.
    Which one do you guys think is more good looking and has overall better performance?

    Thanks

    It's easy - go with 65FT. Far better quality. SHB102 has not been a popular shoe in UK in terms of fit, comfort and looks. It's not got much going for it then.

    I guess you try something new
    The new things that they have put into the shoe like the new sole could help you really slightly

    There is no news on 65FT coming into UK yet. However, my thoughts are that it will appear at All Englands as a replacement for SHB85, which I think will be withdrawn next year.

    Let me say now that there is no evidence to support this right now, only that SHB85 has been with us for 2 years and usually that's the life expectancy of a Yonex shoe in UK. The 65FT is a natural successor to 85 and therefore it would make sense to make this happen.

    Whilst I agree they don't look great I had to buy a new pair of shoes today after breaking mine. I went down to the nearby racket shop and tried on a large number of pairs, none of which fitted well until I though I'd try the 102's despite their bad reviews....

    And they fitted very well and felt exceedingly comfortable! The only way you will know which one is best for you is to try a few pairs on (and if the shop lets you) (or if ordering from the internet try this at home before going on court) do a few simple footwork drills on the shop/ living room floor.

    I should also note I have slightly unusually shaped feet, probably why I found them to be a good fit, whilst everyone else bemoans them.

    Good luck in finding the right shoe.

    I also want to buy SHB-65FT

    but I'm wearing SHB-102ltd (RED)

    the front of the shoes is wide

    but if for 65ft it is not wide

    so what do you think I still can wear it or not

    because my foot shape maybe suit for wide

    but also still want to try shb-65ft

    I'm also in the market for a new pair of shoes. I'm visiting Hong Kong this end of year holiday and planning to purchase my next shoes there. I was going to get the 102LTD just because of the 3 claw design which supposedly prevents twisting of the ankle, but the 65FT is more eye-catchy and looks better in unique orange color. I guess I should try both shoes and decide in the store?

    In terms of fit and overall comfort,the SHB-65FT is better. It's not as restrictive as SHB-102 and lighter too. Yonex has incorporated some new design and materials to the shoe. It is more than a worthy successor for SHB-85,if indeed the rumors are true. IMHO. Still what remains to be seen is how durable it will be. Hope this helps.
