    I have both the SH8500 and the LYD. To me, the LYD is an improvement on an already very excellent shoe (SH8500). Comparing to SH8500, the LYD :

    1). has better (softer, more cushy) cushioning ;
    2). has better traction;
    3). is slightly lighter.

    Both are build on very wide last, so I think you can go with your normal shoe size, no need to size-up.

    atypical - you mentioned 2). has better traction, are you playing hard, wooden planks or mats surface?
    I read somewhere that it doesnt perform well on hard(concrete) surfaces due to the cushioning and its going to affect my decision as I play on hard(concrete) about 30% of the time and wooden plank 70% of the time

    For the LYD, I mainly use them on the green matt surface. I've used the SH8500 on the same surface before, and I still find the LYD superior.

    What are the SH-LYD like for wide feet? I have quite broad feet and wondered if these are suitable?

    I think they should be able to handle wide feet. Give them a try if you can. I like them very much. (Y)

    What about the sizing?

    I've only been using Yonex shoes, are Victor show sizes generally the same as Yonex?

    As these aren't available in the UK, I'll have to order it from Asia so won't be able to try them before buying...

    The pink colour certainly looked very attractive and sexy ...

    Bought a pair from MBS.
    Went with US9.5 after testing my mates 9.5US yonex.
    Hopefully the sizing doesn't differ too much.
    I normally wear US10 nike running shoes though but figured a yonex comparison would give better estimate.

    I'm trying to decide what size I need. I've never worn Victor shoes, but my Yonex shoe size is 27.5, do you think I should go for the same size for the SH-LYD?

    I find the best way is to go by the measurement in CM/MM - that way the size is correct. What colour are you getting??

    You're not selling the T-4000 Q, are you?

    Part of me hopes not... I've just ordered some shorts from HK!

    Hi Mark - no - just the blue and yellow versions.

    Cheers

    Something of a relief - saves me having to get the black/pink shorts

    Any dates for the LYD G for Europe yet? Andreas only said "August"... WC, maybe?

    I'll let you know when I get mine.
    The US9.5 I ordered should be a 27.5cm
