    Tennis and Badminton are not the same sports. I think Badminton shoes have more ankle supports than the tennis shoes.

    Also, the bottom materials are a little different since badminton is played in indoor gyms, and tennis have outdoor courts.

    On certain surfaces, tennis shoes appear to have a bit more grip.. but because of its weight and height... its a danger for the ankle...tehy are desgined for different types of lateral movement.
