    I'm still considering whether I'll get a pair but can guarantee the green is the most likely.

    Still enjoying my 9100's and therefore in no need to buy another pair.

    When do we ever need new shoes?

    My 9100 FG are almost new, but I've pretty much resigned to buying the LYD G when they appear...

    I'm thinking of trying to locate some green sh850's to match the new tk9000.

    You really do want that divorce, don't you.

    The 9100 FG are the best match (with blue and green), but they're

    a) way more expensive, and
    b) not available over here.

    Ben might have some 850 G left, but you can always wait for the LYD G.

    Sorry, mate - I just cost you another 30 quid.

    I was very jammy - mine was a sample pair from the All England that happened to fit me; I don't even know where you'd get these from apart from deepest darkest... Asia.

    They're a perfect match though

    Weirdly, I got the shoes first and then realized that the TK9000 would match them.

    Dropped on there, I think.

    I've not mentioned them to my wife, probably won't either.

    As for Yonex sizing, for reference I tried my mates US9.5 yonex's and they fit similarly to these Victors.
    I wear US10 Nike lunarglides/eclipses if you have any running shoes to compare with.

    But if you go with the 9.5's, I think this will give you the best fit.
    The 9's will be a bit tight and 10's will be too big.

    hope it helps.

    I love those blue and green Victor shoes. I am enjoying the yellow and black but will move for the 9200's or green LYD.

    Victor Europe have stocks of all three shoes but you cannot buy one as a retailer. Direct Sports are selling the yellow and black shoes and not the red.

    LYD are still due August and I am aware both colours will be arriving. I have no idea whether they are already sold out but will check.

    Winston has told me he has got the green LYD, but they aren't on his site. Special order only, it would seem - Asia might not be as taken with the green as we are (if you remember, Vicky told us that "green" sounds similar to "lose" in Chinese).

    Thanks for coming back and posting your feedback! That's really helpful.

    The trouble is, I have only used Yonex shoes for badminton and they are all 27.5cm Japan size. The only other popular shoe that I can compare (not for badminton) is my converse jack purcells that are UK size 8.5.

    Have you used Yonex shoes in 27.5cm before? If so, how do they compare with your LYD-Q? Many thanks

    I don't know if this helps, but my street shoes are UK9 and my Victor shoes are also UK9. But then I do like my badminton shoes tight.

    I'd just go with the UK9.

    Cheers Mark, I think because different manufacturers have slightly different sizings, it's always a bit of a risk unless you try them. Depending on the manufacturer and model of shoe, I can be anything from a UK size 8.5 to UK size 10. But as I'm ordering them from asia, they tend to go by the japan sizes (centimetre) - which is generally more accurate.

    Like you, I also like fairly snug fitting badminton shoes, but must be wide enough for my broad feet - otherwise I tend to twist my ankle.

    I'm just wondering if the Yonex and Victor sizings are about the same. If so then I have nothing to worry about!

    My SH910's are the same size as my Nike's.

    If anything, I think the Victor sizes are slightly larger than Yonex, because I always had UK9.5-10 Yonex.
