Adidas badminton shoes
Saw this on internet and already ordered the 1st one.
Anyone ever used these Adidas badminton shoes?

They have passed by here yes but haven't heard of anyone using them yet(?) ...
I think there might be a 3rd generation already as I saw Reiko wearing yet another pair with 3 almost horizontal stripes which the new adidas models seem to have. Let us know your findings . Have been thinking of ordering but no idea whether they are wide or narrow and they only seem to be released in Japan and perhaps through import in China.
Didn't Reiko used to use the 2E Mizuno Wavecross? That had me thinking these can't be all that wide.
Now that I read it: Sealman should have them but no review/feedback yet ...

Thanks demolidor for reminding me
In Singapore the white/red model has been discontinued but the white/blue model is still available. I bought a pair which was half size bigger than my usual yonex size. Found the shoes quite cushioned in spite of the hard outsoles. I paid under S$100 which imho is a good buy and its a refreshing change from the usual brands.

I like the non-marking feature on adidas shoes.......played with adidas futsal shoes before and it didnt produce annoying marking sound(annoying for me) like yonex shoes.
and I find that my adidas futsal shoes actually has a better grip than yonex`s shoes..........hope that this model gives good grip too

They are the "Adizero BD Feather W" (W for Women); these are indeed the ones I was referring to in post #2 as the 3rd generation ones. They seem to have been released around the globe in the mean while. Actually was searching for them as well a few months ago and found them online in shops in Canada, Switzerland, Spain, UK, etc. Size seems to be the same as the older models and on Rakuten is recommended 1 size up compared to normal width (or rather 0.5cm up).
There are the ones Ikeda is wearing now (and I wanted to get; he was still wearing the black ones back then):
And before in the other colourway:

Thanks demolidor. They look more like trainers/tennis shoes to me but they look good! Will look out for this model in Singapore

Thanks for bumping this thread back up, seeing them again I must have them, even if I can't use them . Alternatively one of the Czech players (Petr Koukal) is using the Adizero CC7 or 3. They are only 289gr. actual weight in one of the YouTube vids, not sure which size though. Listed specs have them at 300gr. (pair on the left is white/orange/black)

Oh that shoes.. it is a good looking shoes..
I think i have a strange taste... I prefer the shoes that worn by Reiko...i like the model, but purple color, make me looks feminine on court...I wish adidas came out with the same model but change the color from mild purple into dark purple or blue...However if i come across that shoe & after wear it, i don't look that feminine.. heck i gonna buy it...

haha... your post about SHB 101LX reminds me a lot of what i did last year.. I went into badminton shop to give myself a pair of badminton shoes. I was in hard decision to purchase either SHB 101LX or SHB 100LX. The shop lady told me that it is better for a person who want to wear this shoes to try it prior purchase, so ask your friend to try it. She thought i wanted to buy it for a friend of mine, and i said i am the one that wanna wear it, then with a strange face she asked me what size did i need . However, my size was not available for that type of shoes they only have 41 in stock whereas my size is larger than that, it is a pretty sad story but funny in a way
