Thread: Mizuno Wave Party 2!!
11-13-2013, 06:52 AM #18
need some advice here, I intend to get a pair of mizuno from Shuttle-House.
I am currently wearing a wave twister (size 27.5) good on court grip, but ball of sole, heel, ankle and knee beginning to hurt a bit (i am 80 kg and played 3 times a week).
Qns given the above:
1/ Wld upgrading to PRO or RV provide better cushioning (understand that an ankle / knee guard wld offer a more direct help, wld come to that later).
2/ If yes, which is better PRO or RV (if i were to wear an ankle guard which cutting is better)
3/ Any recommendation for knee guard ?

The Wave Fang series are lower to the ground, fast and light shoes. In my opinion, they provide less cushioning than a Wave Twister. Perhaps look at some Asics Gel in the forefoot and heel. Yonex SC series too(?)

I just tried the VS last night. I wouldn't buy them again. I think Mizuno over thought the design of the sole by putting in vertical grips at the toe area. It's an odd grip when going forward and also doesn't roll well going from heel to toe.

For me, im never going back to Yonex, Victor etc badminton shoes, and i've tried those before, but Mizuno's are simply one grade higher in terms of comfort and cushioning.
But that's just one man's opinion and i'm sure there are people who will contest that, best try it out yourself if you want to know the difference.

I just got my Mizuno Wave Fang RV from Malaysia, JB. I have played with it once and the feeling is really good. The grip, cushion, support is all good.

Whatever works for your body and feet i guess.
I forget the model of my first pair about 15 years back, but after i graduated from university I was able to get mizuno badminton shoes again. I started with the Wave Smash S1, then 2 x of the Wave Smash S2 Fit, 1x Wave Smash RG3, 2 pairs of the Wave Smash Wide 2 and am currently using a Wave Fang Pro. I just got 2 pairs of the Wave Fang RV.
