    Best cushioning shoes for badminton is hands down the Yonex SC series, ie SC5EX, SC6iEX, and the upcoming SC6iEX LD version.

    I doubt that a show will solve your ankle problem. It's probably the way you move that has caused this.

    could be possible too and my ankle has been prone to sprains since i was a kid .. so i m hoping to get a pair of shoes that has a better stability by the heels which gel rocket may not provide since its kinna high by the heels ..

    Well if you want something with a semi rigid heel piece then I can suggest victor shoes. The SH8500 is a great all rounder. If you don't mind losing a bit of cushioning then I'd suggest the SH9100. They've got a really solid heel brace at the back ofnthe shoe. But all in all the problem sounds more like foot work than footwear. I too have a history of multiple ankle sprains due to basketball during my teen years but have only sprained once out of 9 times total on my right ankle(dominant side) in this sport but never once have I found the shoe being at fault. My advice is if the new shoe doesn't work then you should invest in coaching if possible.

    thanks .. will look into it too .. i would say that my ankle is pretty weak ... even by walking on the street i may sprain them .. for now i have an ankle guard on my dominant leg so i do have a better support (never previously) but not on my other leg which has a knee guard (fractured my knee before) though it's less prone to sprain but occasionally i would lose my balance having it tilting to the left (sometimes even during my split steps) ... so im afraid i might sprain it anytime soon... hahaha

    All depends on the type of flooring that you play on. If on pvc mats then cushioning is not as important as on hardwood or even cement floors, where you definitely need something like the SC series.
