    One thing I have notice is that the padding on top and side is a lot less than other shoes. This also make it feel less supportive and less forgiving to not tying your shoes tight. Do you tie your shoes snugly or wear them kind of loose? My shoes have been great, but I do have to tie them up snugly.

    Got the 9000 Ace last week. I saw the grip issue on the first day, right out of the box on the court. A bit slippery at times. Took it home that night and put windex window cleaner on a paper towel and wiped just the white parts. The second day, i had no grip problems anymore.

    The worst thing though is i have blisters on the top of my foot where the tongue of the shoe touches the foot. I think it has to do with the tongue design. I think i will try to modify this tongue to make it less harsh... In the meantime I'll try all sorts of blister care stuff.

    ^ Tks... I'll have to try the window cleaner too. Perhaps there's some waxy material leftover from the moulding and release process.

    Right, so I got my pair today and like everyone else says: they are very comfortable. I felt very agile on court and the shoes felt very light compared to my previous Yonex shoes.I got extra laces (black) and a London 2012 bag with it.

    Now to the main problem. I also noticed the problem with the white part of the sole being slippery. I played a fast singles game first and during the third point, I was going to lunge for an incoming drop shot and slipped. It wasn't bad and I didn't fall or anything, just slipped a little. After that we played mainly doubles and I never noticed it again.

    On a closer look at the sole after the practice, I've noticed that some of the white has come off like some residue of sort. I also noticed that it looks like they PAINTED those parts in question. If that is the case, which it most likely is due to the paint / residue of it coming off during practice, then it is possible that the solution of the problem would be to clean the white part like paulierand suggested. Going to try them out again on Saturday.

    Same been happening to me - slip, white streak. Wee bit scary sometimes

    Reporting back after using window cleaner, perhaps it helped. I played on suspended hardwood floor 2x and didn't slip.

    Thinking about it, the 2x I slipped were on a particular matted floor at one gym. It's quite new and one of those harder surface ones with a slightly gritty surface (where you wouldn't want to dive on or else your arms and elbows will end up with pretty severe abrasions)... perhaps its the combination of the shoe and the mat. But then, I've never had a problem on this mat with my previous Yonex shoes...

    I usually apply acetone or rubbing alcohol to the soles of new shoes and use a scrubbing brush to get rid of any dust or residue before the first use. There's no way to know how long the shoes have been sat around in their box, or what was left on them after moulding.

    I'm pretty happy with the shoes now.

    I applied some Dr. Scholl's brand Moleskin on the inside because of the blisters i developed and they're comfortable now. No slipping or anything.

    I previously had a pair of Yonex SHB-86EX with Spenco Polysorb insoles and had a lot of heel pain. The 9000 ace seems to get rid of that. Going to wait a while before trying the 9000's with the Spenco Insole...

    I also have the PS Total Support - it'll be interesting to compare...

    Well I used the shoes again yesterday for a singles game and didn't notice any difference in grip anymore. I also used the window cleaner on my other shoes as well and and it does work well I must say!

    flashy is okay. but it's too green... too boring... more white on the side and at the front and it would be very nice.

    got my pair last week, replacing Yonex 101 Limited edition, shoes are very comfortable and do not need break in, very good support, the design is very nice, material selection is top notch also. i got the yellow black color combination. highly recommended.

    Bodes well for me - you switched from my own outgoing shoes.
