    I bought the asics gel blade 3, which looks very similar to this but I really didnt like it so I sent it back.
    Reasons being, that the shoe was pretty thin compared to most other badminton shoes and felt a bit stiff.

    I managed to do this with my Gel Beyonds (2012 edition) within 2 months.
    So if you want to use the beyond, use some tape between the rubber and the foam parts of the sole. Because they dettach quite easily.

    They did always look a little flimsy in the pics compared to other models ...

    Very nice, I really like the blue Gel Blade 4. Too bad the colours are a bit... boring, but Asics is definitely my nr. 1 choice for badminton shoes (after I've tried Yonex, Forza and Mizuno). Only other shoe I'd like to try are the Victor SH9000's, but it's much easier to get Asics shoes here in The Netherlands.

    so, this is what Asics has done to me. I order 1 set of GB3's and 1 set of Progressives, to try out. I loved the GB3's but the Progr's where just too high and started creaking when I stepped with my left foot. So I ordered two more GB3's. But I broke 1 set and returned the Prog and got two sets of Gel Beyond's as replacements for both (total cost: 15 euros, for two new pairs, awesome service at handbal-direct.nl and Huijg Sport)

    I wrecked 1 pair of GB, with I didn't really fancy any more after a month or so. The top part of the shoe is too soft and flexes to easily. But I wrecked them at the spot where all GB's ahve that 'rhino skin' flap. So now I'm back to the B4's now they're out and I like them. One wore the blue ones once now, feel remarkably like the 3's.

    So here're some comparison pictures, only thing is: I've worn the GB3's for quite some time already. I can't tell if the upward "curve" on the nose is because my abuse, or the shoe model.

    Interesting to see there is indeed no natural colour rubber on the sole but almost all red. Had seen two different pics so far ...
    And the GB3 does indeed curve more upward than the 4 appear to here (but maybe not as much as yours by now, unless the heel is flat on the surface) .

    My GB3s also have an upward curve so I guess it really is part of the shoe model. Handbal-direct.nl and/or Huijg Sport are great tips by the way; haven't heard of these shops before. I will definitely have a look at the latter one in the near future.

    Jerby, since you have both B3 and B4, do you mind gives us some review on how's the feel? Which 1 you prefer? Most salesperson I met mentioned that B4 is better, but when I asked them specifically, they can't answer it. I'll be really appreciate if you can give us some info on the performance of this 2 great shoes.
