The SHB-01 LTD yellow is Lee Chong Wei's new shoes first worn by him in last year's Super Series Finals. New Quattro Fit feature in these shoes as explained in the pictures of the poster. MX for men, LX for ladies and LTD is unisex.
In expectation of Aramis' in depth pictorial let me post some key pics from a big bunch over at the neighbours . And as always the (yellow) LTD is JP model quality ... Christinna Pedersen wearing the LX at the Korean Open btw as pictured above...
Yup agreed. They try to follow Lining design w big YY logo attached outside & basketball cutting design.
Besides, the price also gone up w additional RM10.
The new models has black patch at one side. This time w lateral claw (interior design)
Still prefer F1MX Metallic Blue is the best design. SHB800 best among the new models.
I picked up 2 pairs today from Yonex and gave them a try. I have to say the 1st thing I noticed was how snug they were on my feet, it felt really good to have shoes that hugged my feet in that way. They feel like they have very good support on them as well and are relatively light as well. The design isnt terribly, they remind me more of sprinting shoes or soccer shoes rather than badminton.
But yes as I mentioned before the biggest and best feature to me is the way it is designed to be close to the foot. This new "QUATTRO FIT" thing may be something very useful and good, at least for me having narrow feet and a high arch. While playing with them today it was just a great feeling moving around the court with them. Once they are broken in I am sure that the feeling will be even better. It can be a little tight around the toes cause they have removed some extra space there but still nothing uncomfortable.
I am interested to see how the durability on these shoes are, going through around 12 pairs of yonex shoes last year (mostly SHB 86's) Im itching to see how long these last. The construction looks pretty promising though and heres hoping they last 2+ months.
