    Default Adidas Handball for badminton?

    I used to use running shoes for badminton, however I realised they were too soft and could cause me an injury.

    I now use Adidas 5 a side shoes http://www.prosportuk.com/football_k..._trainers.html as they are much more solid, and feel better, however the astro grip isnt as good on sports halls.

    Are there any good looking badminton shoes out there, as all the ones I have seen look a bit silly.

    Such as these http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...CJMKDN5G4CX0F3

    As I am a bit of an Adidas shoe whore!

    ASking if Adidas Originals are good for sports is like asking if you should wear All Stars for basketball nowadays

    Two questions though still:
    • Why did you buy astro turf shoes for indoors?? Astro turf is like fieldhockey artificial grass and the likes and very obviously not suited for indoors ...
    • And is that Adidas Original supposed to be an example of good looking or silly?
    But to sum it up briefly: adidas handball would be a much better choice than indoor football ones; not the adidas originals line, which is just retro fashion.

    Here are two from the bottom of the (price) range:

    But make sure they are the new logo, not retro logo

    Well basically I play 5 a side football, I really like the comfort and support the 5 a side shoes give me, but the grip is terrible.

    Good point about the Originals line but I do love the retro style.

    I may have actually found a shoe I almost like http://www.sweatband.com/karakal-xs600-court-shoe.html or even these classics http://www.sweatband.com/hitec-squas...sic-shoes.html

    Performance over style as I slipped over last night, is say a 100 Yonex shoe that much better?
