    is this going to be the trend of the year with light and quick shoes? Victor came out with the same message for their SH9000ACE. I hope these shoes are 'stable'.

    Stable and doesnt sacrifice cushioning for agility. Btw SH9000 does have word "stable" stamped on the shoes itself hehehe.

    Hey, dont they wanna come out with big size, wide, flatfoot, good in cushioning, stable, and lightning fast, ok I might drop the lightning fast part, but I need the shoes that fit these criteria I mentioned hehee.

    why do they have to make the YY so big?

    ok i know why, but it makes a nicely designed shoe really ugly.

    blitzzards, you are well known for having widefeet. Should direct this question to you. I have foot of 29cm long and 12cm wide, any Yonex shoes that fit the criteria ? This one ?

    In Malaysia it is rare to find US12 size shoes, let alone for wide feet. Usually only Asics and Mizuno provide large size. I had 2 pairs of Asics, looking forward to trying Yonex or Victor shoes for my next purchase.

    Sorry Kwun,
    Looks like this one will not be available in US. SHB86 will be.

    Yes Sir! I do have wide feet which I discovered that only the Yonex JP wide-specified [4E] shoes can accommodate without me feeling pain

    For your reference my feet size is 26.5cm long and 11cm wide and I wear size US9.5/27.5cm Yonex SHB200WM (2009 model) which are 4E specified, as are these SHB82WMD and SHB82W (one mid-cut model and the other normal low cut, respectively) which I posted here. The sizing should be the same and can accommodate your wide feet too, although I cannot suggest correctly which length size you should get.

    Sunrise used to have the SHB80W SP for the ASEAN market back in 2008, which if you can find (by sheer luck), will give you a good idea of the room for the wide feet and the sizing that you would require.

    We can always order them direct from Japan, such as through shuttle-house

    Wait, 265mm with 11cm width ? Isnt that like super wide ?

    The problem im having with non-wide design shoe is I have to choose 1cm bigger to cater for the wide-ness, but leaving room at the front. in the end when lunging my feet slide fore and aft causes blisters especially underneath the big toe. Now looking for specific wide shoes but no luck so far.

    Thanks for the recommendation, hopefully soon they'll have specific model for widefooter for the ASEAN market.

    I really do not recommend (as with other doctors who told me the same thing) to have too much room in the toe box area for any shoe. For my case the 275mm 4E size that I wear is actually very snug fit for my feet and they do not slide at all inside the shoe. In your case your ideal size is probably 295mm but please do note that 290mm could probably even fit your feet snugly.

    The 4E wide Yonex shoes (such as these) are definitely a good fit for a range from your kind of wide feet to my kind of super-wide feet.

    As per my experience the very last time I have seen a 4E wide Yonex shoe in the SSEAN market (i.e. Yonex Sunrise SP) is the SHB80W SP back in 2008 and also the SHB79W SP back in 2007. I am unsure if any more wide feet models will be released for the Sunrise distribution. Your next option could be just like mine, which is to order straight from Japan the 4E wide feet JP models via shuttle-house.
