Thread: Shoes Durability
05-15-2013, 01:34 AM #18
the most lasting badminton shoes i had lasted for almost 6 months. Now this new one just show sign of damage after 9days (played for like 7 session, 2 hour non stop per session). Anymore suggestion on how to keep the shoes durable? or how to pick a durable one, anyone?

My Victor ACE9000 only lasted me only about 6 months and now the sole on the left foot is completely worn and torn from all lunging it had to deal with. Though I do practice 4-5 times a week and play 2-3 times a week, So considering how much use they got they lasted quite a while.

I have a Yonex SHB-F1MX which lasted me 6 months! Quite disappointing really. I play on average around 2-3 times a week, around 2 hours each, mostly doubles.
The overhead ripped off from the soles at the front. =p
I am too looking for shoes that are durable. Any thoughts on APAC footwear?

I think it has been known that Yonex shoes are not durable. Apacs performed badly too as according to what my friends said. For durability, go for Asics or Mizuno.
I have yet to try Li Ning, Kawasaki, Kumpoo or maybe Victor...

its recommend to change shoe every 3yrs even its good condition from its outlook.
the rubber will lose the optimum functionality to absorb impact after 3 yrs.
if u not so particular on performance based then you could wear until its broken

I think hardly there are any shoes that can last 3 years if worn extensively.

If you play 2-3 times a week with advance skills, 3-6 months on average.
So, you decide if you want to waste your money on more expensive shoes.

Yeah, can confirm what extremenanopowe wrote. It's basically not the sole that makes trouble, it's the cushioning. If I really wanna save some bucks or am not fancy on spending too much money, I can use them for 6 months maybe. Cushioning usually gets less effective way before.
It depends on how you use your shoes though.

i play double..
maybe i am too heavy for 74kg running and jumping around..
*maybe also because i play 2 times a week on a hard floor tile court..
other 3 days a week play at wooden court

I wear li-ning hero(ayaf003) for both volleyball and badminton. I've been wearing it since December last year and each of my sessions are like 3 hour each. I play volleyball 3 times a week and badminton once or twice a week. I'm still wondering how can I spoil my shoes.
