Thread: Yonex SHB-85LTD, SHB-85EX

Yonex SHB-85LTD, SHB-85EX
The SP version of the SHB65 JP. Tried both sizes in 28.5 (US 10.5) and 29.0 (US 11) and found the 28.5 a better fit. I bought my SHB200 in size 29.0. My Mizunos are also 28.5 but my Li-Ning is 28.0 (US 11). It seems there is a discrepancy in Li-Ning sizes as compared to the Japanese brands.
Those who currently own the SHB65 can make some comparisons here in terms of what are the physical features and appearance they differ.
Not available for sale yet as price is yet to be determined but Sunrise's Malaysia is retailing them at RM230 (about SGD95).

is there supposed to be any difference compared to SHB65CF? I know the 101LTD SP and JP version has different logo.. but quality wise, I have no idea.
btw, I feel that this shoes could be the next SHB98

Since your using SHB200, shall i assume that this shoe is for wide feet?

re photo #5, the 'golden heel brace':
shb 85 - look at the inner side of the shoe, the thin black line on each 'leg' of the golden brace is only painted on, on the outer side they are molded.
shb 65cf - thin black lines are molded both sides.
only a minor cosmetic difference. hope performance is the same. i really like my 65cf.

SHB65CF or SHB85EX will do fine for both normal feet and slightly wide feet. From my experience with SHB200EX (which is not exactly 4E to begin with), it fits properly but doesn't give as much room for comfort as a real 4E shoe will. A person with 3E feet size will be able to fit in nicely with no additional lateral sliding inside the shoe.

If I'm not mistaken the shoe insoles don't look like they have the wave pattern of the modern power cushions as the SHB65CF?

The comparison of the JP and SP SHB200 in your thread shows the wave pattern in the JP shoes are also more pronounced. I checked with my own SP shoe and the 'waves' are pretty flat.

For me, SHB85 has one of the best appearance among other models btw, I feel that this shoes is similar to my all time favourite SGB98 (light and less bulky) compared to 101LTD. might switch to this shoes sometimes soon

Just for some thinker, if you are paying for premium price and not getting the Top-end quality, suggest you go for less expensive range, then you can save your $$$ for other things.

Another difference is the tongue of the shoe (besides the insole and painted black on the gold on the inside). It's shiny plastic at the top where it says "YY Yonex" instead of fabric. But for ~$40SGD less I'm sure you can look past it .

Ara, how much is it ?? & what about the Ultima version ??

I don't have any problems with my SHB200 yet but then again I don't use it all the time as I rotate usage among my shoes.
