* the Taiwanese Mizuno website is more informative than the Canadian website. It makes me realize that Yonex is not the only one that can make good badminton shoes.
Would a regular pair of socks appropriate for badminton shoes? I am asking this because I am using cycling socks for my clipless cycling shoes. Mizono and Yonex shoes have some sort of anti-twist system. Would a pair of thick socks negate the effect of the anti-twist system? Perhaps we shouldn't wear thick socks at all?

3 If you want to understand what a professional sock is, you really need to buy a pair of good "Nittaku" to see and test.
4 Good Nittaku socks have different thickness at the bottom of the sock such that the socks are according to the "contour" of the foot. The floor feelings and reaction is faster.
5 I bought half a dozen of Nittaku, and I brought one pair to the Court when my son was training footwork with some other socks. He changed the socks on the spot without knowing the reasons, but he feels the diff.
Get it. Nittaku sock , made in Japan.

Nittaku, why does it sound so familiar? It has been over seven years, now I remember it from my ping-pong life; they make excellent ping-pong ball. At the time, the ball was either Nittaku or Double-Happiness at the competition scene. Funny thing was that we didn't buy its socks. Thanks for sharing.

A bit of advice on when to buy badminton shoes : don't go straight into a sports store and try on a pair of shoes. The best time is to choose a hot or warm afternoon, walk for some distance with badminton socks, and then and only then, go into the sports store to try on a pair of shoes for size.

I believe the Mizuno 7KM 34014 has been replaced by 7KM 34009. I have evaluated the new 7KM 34009 and the 7KM 42062 and they are no where near as good as the discontinued 7KM 34014, with anti-twisting and anti-centre "collapse" properties as disappointing as the Yonex shoes. If you shop around a bit you may come across some unsold 7KM 34014.

of cauz shoes is a top priority.to me.i play at least 3 times a week.but really if you only play like 1 a month or something like that then using normal shoes is ok.but if you are like doing all the drills and everything and playing competieive than without shoes is just like not wearing your underware.hahax

There isnt exactly a need for badminton shoes. any shoes will do. just that some places have rules against marking courts and others just like the comfort. No need for court shoes most ppl just want them

i will tell u something that would make myself look stupid. i wear soccer shoes for badminton.(without studs) last time i tried normal track shoes and i burst 2 of them. my feet just came out of the shoe while doing 'emergency brakes' during the game

I didnt think Badminton shoes are really necessary before, but now I think a good pair is really important. It provides more comfort and feels alot lighter too, you could really do with the extra "cusioning" for landing after a jump smash.

Back a long time ago I went without badminton shoes and just used a pair of light decent trainers or running shoes over a year or two when I'd just started to play badminton. I had no injuries.
However...badminton shoes Are important. I'm not saying with 100% certainty that Everyone who plays badminton without shoes will get injured, because that would of course, be absurd.
But given some injuries can be very serious, is it worth risking it? I seriously think not, especially not when to prevent injury, a pair of reasonable and cost-effective badminton shoes can be really quite cheap. My current shoes only cost £15 to £20 over the years that I've used, and they are fairly good, there are most likely even cheaper ones out there.
A good pair of badminton shoes is even better, particularly with cushioning and such which is even More important for constant, and particularly competitive play. They have many advantages.
Primarily what I'm saying it, Badminton shoes are important. Yes, there is a need for them, Really. They're essential because they prevent potentially serious injury; it's not worth the risk using just running shoes and such. It's safer to use appropriate footwear.
Also, this thread is old.
