    They are released in the UK this coming Monday - I'll maybe get a pair depending on price since I've just bought a new pair of 89's and have a pair of newish 98's.

    Unless when I go to the shop to get some 89s they have run out of my size.

    So I tried on a pair of SHB99
    As with the 98s I had to go half a size larger than my normal size to get a good fit.

    The 99s feel more like the 89s than the 98s
    They have a wider fitting than the 98, about the same as the 89.
    They are heavier than the 98s, again, about the same as the 89, but they felt light whilst being worn.

    So I bought a pair.

    Some famous palyers already got these shoes from YONEX on the German Open like HA Taekwon and his partner Im Bangeun. During the All England all Yonex sponosored teams should receive them. The response was very positive.

    You're a sucker for the Yonex marketing

    Just seen it in Bras Basah in Singapore S$149, as usual made in china.

    Sorry, did not buy it, too expensive for me

    Sorry never wore a SHB before cannot comment.
    Still questioning its durability v/s price ratio

    Regards

    I saw the SHB99 Low today at Yonex's website.

    Somehow, it's not the same as 99MID: the color is different and the price is a little lower.

    I've played in my 99s a few times now, and the only thing I've particularly noticed is that the insole is a little higher under the arches. It felt funny for a while but I got used to it.
    Otherwise I haven't noticed much difference from the 89s

    It's kind of confusing, as USA, Taiwan, and many other countries already have the white color of the 99 (same as 99 MID, but in low)

    Now Yonex came up with this 99 Low in silver color. I wonder if this is supposed to be a new model or what........?

    for those who have bought/tried the SHB 99, i know that the 98 is narrower than the 89.. but how about the 99? because im in Canada, and im wishing to buy a pair of 99 from taiwan and have someone bring it over for me.. but here (even at clearOne) they haven't heard of the SHB 99 but i dont know which shoe (89/98) i should try to find the size that would fit my feet for 99's.. any help would be great thanks
