Hi all,

I apologise if this is a bit of a silly question. I've been getting blisters and pain in my foot sometimes after badminton to decided to upgrade my normal trainers for some proper badminton shoes.

I've purchases the Yonex SHB 102LTD's. I was unable to find a shop where I could try these on, so I bought it online, buying a size up than I usual wear (10 instead of 9).

The shoe fits really well and is snug along the sides. After about 10 mins of wearing them I decided to check how far my toes come. There's probably a 1-1.5cm gap at the front.

My question is, should my toe be quite snug or very close to the front of the shoe for badminton shoes. The reason I'm asking is someone told me it shouldn't matter. I'm thinking that perhaps I should go down half a size?

Any help would be much appreciated!
