Thirdly, perhaps someone can send me a top-down picture of a brannock device with the specifications how large the distances between numbers are, so i can "reconstruct" the device on paper?
P.S. what was your foot size in mms, sydney?

Solution to your problems
Hi, first of all, my size is 28.0 cm. The Japanese uses the Metric system. So, 28.0 means 28 cm. Now, to resolve your problem, here's a link to download the Brannock chart which I had used for myself before I bought my pair of shoes from Shuttlehouse.
Print that out and you will have your own Brannock (paper) measure.
After that, look at this http://www.brannock.com/conversion.html
for the conversion to Metric system.
I hope this solves your solution.

thanks, syd! I tried the paper version and it turned out i needed 9US/8.5UK - just as i thought. I mentioned somewhere in the forum previously that i had tried asics on and the 27cm/9US/42.5EU model was pretty tight. I guess i should go for mizuno size 9US anyway.

Sydney, what about that brannock heel-to-ball measure? Is there a paper version for that too?

WT - in addition to my PM.. the shoes I gave to my brother was Asics gels.. they were very light, but had less cushioning than my Mizuno now.. am not so sure about the model I got.. but the code is... 7KM-54025. I have moderately high arched feet and the cushioning is good. They are not are bouncy as say a K-swiss outdoor casual shoe.. but my right hip (play right handed) doesn't hurt anymore, unlike when I was using the Asic gel. (am about 75 kgs.)
to clarify.. and in fairness to the Asics.. I have torn both ACL and PCL in both my kness during my teens.. torn minisucs (?) and a lot of other injuries to my knees.. so the acis might provide adequate cushioning to most of the players who aren't injured like I am..

Sydney, please assist me once more, and this is crucial - how the hell did you enter your address in the order form? The shuttle-house.com website for some reason finds my address field empty and asks for an address.
I think i got it - there could be no punctuation in the address field.

I hope everything went well for you. Otherwise, send them (Shuttle-house) an e-mail with your order confirmation # and correct postal address.

let's hope the japanese get it right. Oddly enough - i was never asked about the shipping kind. Don't remember if i wrote shipping in the comments box or not. Anyway... let's just wait for two weeks and then start worrying .

Be rest assured that you'll get your shoes in perfect condition. Without prejudice, no one beats the Japanese when it comes to packaging <img>
As for the shipping, they normally use the postal service "EMS" which is shared by all the postal services worldwide. I believe you should be able to get yours within 4 - 5 days.

Here is my Wave Smash S2, 7KM-51025, size 27. bought it for abt US$50. this pair has nothing to be complained abt. the sole is a little thinner than Yonex shoes, thus brings more stability. it is also meant for wider feet. but nothing beats the looks that people give you when you wear these pair of shoes. overall, i am satisfied and would recommend these pair.

Got my Mizuno Wave Gate IIs today!!!!
Can't wait to try them out on court.
The size 27cm fits almost perfectly on my 26/25.5cm foot. Let's just wait and see when and how it feels when they break in.

*sigh* it is even hard to find info on mizuno badminton shoes online, let alone finding them in shops. you would have to browse every shop in your town. i was getting excited about the wave gate but now there's a big possibility of not finding them at all.

It's been a couple weeks since I got my Wave Gate IIs and I can say they're fantastic. Cushioning's good, breathability's better and I noticed a huge improvement in my footwork because I didn't worry about hurting my toes any longer.
If anything, my footwork improved so much that my shots went bad...I guess I'm not used to arriving at the shuttle as quickly as I do now. Hahaha!
In other news, I've just seen pictures of the Wave Gate III posted here somewhere...they look real nice! Unfortunately they're not on sale here in Manila just yet.
