    Do your toes ever bunch up at the end while playing since they are so close to the end?

    Seems like a lot of people like a tighter fit. Maybe I will try size 9 instead of 9.5 in Victor.

    Not sure if that's what you want to do given that it might be narrower than the SHB86 as experienced by LD Rules. Iirc this 9000 was also more narrow than the 8500 or 8000, one of which sounded like a pretty wide shoe ...
    Sometimes you just have to walk away from a model (it's not exactly ideal to buy a few sizes up just to accommodate the width, buy a wider model instead)

    No, not after breaking them in. Perhaps in the first week where they were indeed a bit tight (but I can't go up another size - 45.5 is the largest Victor there is^^). Now they fit perfectly, enough room for toes and not too tight either. I have slightly wide feet, was unable to wear the SHB101. The 9000 were a bit uncomfortable at first, but widen nicely and have the perfect width for me now.

    The SHB86 is one of the worst shoes I've ever worn. Super stiff at first, and still a long shot from comfortable when worn in (after 3-4 weeks). Kinda glad they tore so soon, the SH-F1 was much better. Still looking for that extra-durable shoe :S

    Reading it back at the time I wasn't quite sure where that UK size comparison by Kazoo came from all of a sudden but I only now see it was a reply to your post instead of Mark's .
    A 27.5cm one at least is a US9.5, 27 = US9 and a 26.5 is a US8.5 ... and for Yonex as well (who do have US10 as UK9.5).

    Saw one table that had both the Yonex an Victor logo on it with the exact same UK sizes but the box trumps any non official chart .

    Weird chart, strange it should list like that, I have had yonex shoes(badminton) victor shoes(badminton) and everything else from Nike/Addidas, and dress shoes. All have always stated a full size difference between countries, i.e uk8 = us9 uk7.5 = us8.5 and so on, that's why I checked thinking Victor might do it different but no. UK9=EU44 though.

    Seeing quite a lot of wear & tear on these pair of shoes. They're less than a year old. Maybe about 6 months only.

    Some of the red "paint" is peeling off. One of the shoe laces has actually snapped (first time this has ever happened to me). One corner of the heel area of the outer sole is actually starting to peel away from the base. Cushioning starting to fade away too, actually feeling some pain when landing sometimes. But the outer sole still looks fine, grip is still there.

    I play roughly 3 times a week and these include about 5-10 sets of doubles each time. I only wear my shoes on court, not on other surfaces.

    Don't get me wrong though, they're probably the best pair of badminton shoes I have ever owned in terms of performance. But durability is a bit of a disappointment.

    Just a quick check and my Nike shoes have US a full size larger whereas Adidas has them half a size larger. I've always assumed half a size myself as well perhaps because of Yonex (not that it applies over here, and I've stopped looking at everything else but the cm size a long time ago) ...
    New Balance half a size, Reebok a full size, K-Swiss a full size ... where's the logic . A full size up seems to be the most prevalent indeed going on the link below.

    Here's an extensive list of brands and tables that confirm the above ones: http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/in...backTo=4417990

    Ha ha, my Yonex 101's bought in UK full size diff from US size stated on tongue. Just found a yonex chart that states a difference again in EU sizing. Basically shoe manufacturers must want people in certain countries to feel like the have smaller or bigger feet compared with other countries

    So I just purchased the Victor SH9000ace-e today. As many people commented, they don't require a break-in time. These look amazing in the yellow colorway. You have to see them in person to really appreciate them, the pictures online don't really give you the same awesome-ness you would witness in real life.

    I am looking forward to choosing which Victor shoes I will be wearing next season. I really like 9000 Ace in yellow. I know a few players who are wearing them and they only have good things to say about them.

    Pick something other than the 9000's so you can review them - the world and his dog knows how good the 9000 are by now!

    Maybe the 850 in blue... (yes, this is entirely self-serving - I'd rather have somebody I know and trust test something before I commit to buying it).

    You may be twisting my arm here. I'm not a great fan of coloured shoes although apprecaite they are making an impact on the game. That said, green 9000's are nice although I prefer yellow and black combination.

    Given the choice I fancy 8500D worn by LYD. I agree 850 blue look nice although probalby not on me. The orange version will be available in UK very soon.

    It's too early to tell what I will be wearing next season.

    I'm looking forward to our next testing session.

    Much as I am a fan of coloured shoes, the "chocolate limes" 9000 don't really work for me - needed some other colour to break it up. Given the choice, I'd go for the "wasp" version as well. Did I see a purple version in the works?!?

    Victor seem to have clocked what Yonex did: if your shoes can be seen from Row Z, people will ask about them. Just look how well those ludicrous orange Yonex 86's did.

    P.S. I'd really have a test session with the 8500 if you're considering them - that Talon Guard thingy is extremely painful if it doesn't fit your foot!

    I don't know about purple shoes. I've seen the orange and they look great but not for me.

    You may be surprised that the orange shoes have not sold that well outside All Englands and the usual time lag following it. They are popular with the younger players and juniors but not so much with more senior players.

    Better to opt for SH9000 since its provides lots of support compared to SHA850.

    Perhaps we might say that SH9000 is the equal product to YY SHB102, whilst SHA850 is the equal product to YY SHB65.

    What's would be the equivalent of the SH-8500 in YY's line?

    I wouldn't be surprised if SH-A850 will not sell very well in Europe. Europeans tend to be of bigger built than Aisans, thereby requiring extra support from shoes.

    hmm... SH 8500 was initially released by Victor in 2011...

    During the time, if I'm not mistaken, YY best shoes was SHB 101

    I might be wrong though.... but I personally opine that the released of V products seems to follow the released of YY's similar product
