    hey lindanfan,

    Although what i'm suggesting may make your shoe look a little less attractive, the method i use to prevent a whole from burning into my left shoe when i drag it is to cut a rectangular piece of athletic tape and cover the hole. Surprisingly, the tape holds up but you may have to change the tape periodically. I started doing this to all my new shoes (yes...i said new) and they have not yet had a hole.. Give it a shot.

    Good luck

    Hi DinkAlot,

    Dang, the hi-tec switchback looks beautiful. The last pair of hi-tec shoes i wore were the adrenalin ultras about 3 years ago (terrific shoe) and i got turned off after they re-designed their whole indoor court shoe line (i think this was after hi-tec was bought out by another company). Hmm..... if you haven't posted a review on the shoe yet, please do. Time for me to look up the price.

    Thanks

    Agree, good suggestion about the "A-Tape". I used to do that for tennis.

    Just FYI, the Hi-Tec Switchback is double layered and stitched at the most prone to wear-out areas. It's a very well thought out shoe. I'll take a close up of the shoe later on today.

    Athletic Tape/Hockey Tape/Medical tape should all do the trick. What's common is that the non-adhesive side feels almost like textured cloth...
    You should be able to find them in most sports stores or in your pharmacy/drug store. They are inexpensive and I use them for 2 purposes:
    1) to patch or strengthen the surface of the shoe that comes in contact with the floor when i drag my non racket foot (let me know if you want pictures, i can attach them later)
    2) to tape fingers, especially in sports like basketball and volleyball.. I think it's to avoid blisters (that's what i use it for in badminton).

    So i use it for it's "intended" purpose and to patch my shoe up...Good value and it works!

    The tape usually comes in rolls (about $5 a roll) and are about 1 inch in width. The most common color is white (most badminton shoes are this color except for the new yonex models).... but i have seen other colors such as purple and black.


    here's an example of athletic tape...
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...goods&v=glance

    It's cheap and carries little risk. If you don't care too much about the looks of your shoes and want to pro-long your shoe life..this is the best option.

    i sound like an infomercial.
    Cheers

    Some times, on rare occasions, infomercials are good.

    Yep, I love "A-Tape". It's very utilitarian.

    Anyway, out of vanity and brainwashing from watching the pros play on TV, I bought a pair of those Yonex SHB-99Limited shoes this afternoon. Yeah, I'm bad. Would it help if I offer an explanation that my old Yonex pair looked a little too "used"?
