So, anyone here wants to post more reviews on SHB99?
(I am thinking getting one as well)

shb99 is a further refinement of shb98. shb98 is light and contour foot better than shb89 especially for ppl wif odd shape foot but imo weaker during extreme lateral control. This is where the lateral claw feature on the 99 come in. The power cushion insole MC is also a slight improvement over the insole FG of 98. My feet is regular in arch and width (not narrow, not wide) so my comments come from a neutral foot point of view.

...i tape my shoe too...but my problem is that it keeps coming off...and if you use really sticky tape...it leaves residue and dirt collects to show where it was...anyway around this people?

Yonex ones have a large leather area (with no mesh) so sweat does not permiate, and the tape does not dislodge. On my hi-tech shoe, where there is a lot of meshing, whatever tape I use won't help. I use gaffer tape, which is generally one of the tackiest.
But with meshing, you can sew the tape edge onto the fabric...anyone try?

Is it just me or are yonex shoes getting more ugly? They are starting to look like basketball shoes. Lol.
Next thing you know, the short shorts will become long basketball shorts. =/ Just like what happened for basketball, they use to wear shorts like badminton and now the trend is long shorts past the knee.

here comes the red one, which is advertised cheaper on the yonex official site. (pic from yonex jp.)
here is the mid verison on yonex jp.
just found some more detailed pics.
from the first one to the last one:
perhaps, the 99 I am refering to and appears in kwun's pics is the shb-99mx.

i'm a little confused about what you mean, but from what i gather from a website of a store in taiwan, the SHB 99 MX is the japanese version (ie. more expensive) of the MID, which is the international version (ie. cheaper than MX). the LO i believe is a different version all together (and the only one that is silver)
i also heard somewhere that the MX version is slightly narrower than the MID version
