    I'm a bit hesitating.
    I got a pair of 9000ACE and found that the rear cushioning is too stiff for me.
    From the outlook of the rear, 9100 looks very similar to 9000ACE.
    Looking forward to seeing the comparison in this respect.

    Interesting comment Scott.

    like any other piece of equipment, shoes have to fit to a players personal requirements. And there's no more personal as feet. We are so different, but shoes have to fit really well and provide the support players require. Overall I do question whether the sports shoe manufacturers pay enough attention to the footwear issue especially shoes to fit wider feet.

    Some manufacturers have size issues too such as limiting their largest size. For Victor size 12 is the largest, which becomes a problem for any player requiring size 12.5 upwards. This is where the likes of Asics seem to excel as they appear to be more considerate to the individual and different sizing requirements.

    I'm still unsure whether the move to all colour shoes is going to catch on. I've no doubt it is huge in Asia, but Europe seems to be lagging behind, especially UK. Maybe I'm old fashioned. I really like wearing coloured clothing but coloured footwear seems weird. I've tried black shoes and was never comfortable wearing them.

    I really love the designs and colours of SH-P9100 shoes. I can imagine wearing them to match a top if I wore tracksuit bottoms. But, when I'm in shorts something changes and I'm really not comfortable wearing colours.

I like coloured shoes on other players but in general I feel wrong going onto court with coloured shoes.

    Sadly these shoes are not offered in white or I would wear them. Not so sure I'll get comfortable in coloured shoes.

    Hi Paul. Did you get the chance to wear it on? I am currently wearing 9000ace but needed to get a new pair of shoes soon so I wonder if these shoes are similar to 9000ace in terms of the cushioning? I tend to like the feel of wearing 9000ace when you feel like your feet is very close to the ground, while still provide superb cushioning. Cheers

    Hi Jason

    No I didn't as the samples were not my size. If Victor made them in white I would not hesitate to wear them. I need to get over my prejudice for coloured shoes on me - I love them on other players.

    The red one looks really promising as my next shoe. Had the 9000ACE last year, excellent fit and light. Heel fit is one of the best I've ever experienced, partly due to the one way napping of the material... prevents your foot from sliding out. Never seen this design in any other shoe.

    Hope this feature will remain in this update. Plus hope it'll have more cushioning this time... the 9000ACE was just too hard when playing on hardwood floors.

    Anyone know to comment on these 2 items? Paul?

    I agree with you visor. 9000ace has excellent support and is light and fast, but with slight flaw that the cushioning was abit too hard to play on hard floor. If p9100 is a real improvement over 9000ace then im definitely getting it.

    Sadly, I can't compare 9000 with P9100 because I don't have 9000 Ace shoe and I've only held, poked and prodded P9100 shoe. Generally manufacturers these days are seeking improvements on previous models so I was certainly impressed with P9100. I've said before my only concern with this shoe is the lack of a white version.

    Haha I'm just curious why colour really matters. What matters is that you enjoy playing badminton, not your appearance lol.

    I believe it's got to do with the British cultural preference kinda thing. If Paul were to wear coloured shoes, he probably will b the only one or the only few on courts to do that. Everyone else would b wearing white basically...cmiiw

    You are right as there is a cultural element. But, I think it's also because when you are so used to watching players in white shoes, looking down at your feet and seeing red shoes just doesn't feel right. I'd feel like I've just landed in the film The Wizard of Oz!

    Wearing coloured shoes with tracksuit bottoms is different. With a matching red top and black bottoms the overall look would be fine and therefore subconsciously I wouldn't feel awkward.

    As any player knows, if the subconscious is distracted by something, then it is harder to focus.

    i think that's very sound logic in terms of personal preference.

    LOL - Teddy I'll be wearing a halo next in your book! There are times when I get things wrong, especially when I try to find better ways to teach players and help them make faster progress.

    I should spend more time in the coaching part of this forum rather than equipment, but I prefer to be in here and let everyone else have their say. Apart from that, it's tough trying to give coaching advice in a forum. And that's why I'm recording so many videos at the moment. If you're not following me on Facebook then you could miss out because news of what I'm launching is already up.
