After reading all the threads and saw the pictures.
I like Red-White color, because I find that Red-Silver is a bit fancy to me.
Consider that many BFers find that SHB-99 'bigger' then SHB-89 which I am using right now, so I decided to go myself to fix it in the shop rather than order online.
Not many special badminton shop to find in Belgium, so I will buy one later this summer in Netherlands (like usual), when I go there.

Quick question. The SHB-89MG has the anti-twist system which is something I'm looking for since twisting my ankle doesn't sound like a lot of fun.
Will the SHB-99MID (not low) have as much if not more ankle support as the SHB-89MG? I know the SHB-98 doesn't which is why I'm not even considering that.

so i finally managed to use the SHB99 for one evening worth of badminton.
initially, i had fear that the shoelaces aren't tight enough so i tightened up. at the end of the first game, my feet started aching. i immediately loosen the laces and everything was good. even with my wide feet, they fit well and comfortable.
overall, the shoes felt very similar to the SHB89. there is still quite minimal amount of padding at the sole of the shoes. if you are using them on a hard and stiff surface like a thin playing surface on top of concrete, you will start to feel your knees after a while.
the rigidity of the rear end of the shoes is better than SHB89. it maybe a combination of the structure of the heel area as well as the special insole.
talking about the insole, i did feel some movement of the insole at some point of the evening, i am not sure if that's a problem or if it will go away after the shoes are properly broken-in.
gripping of the sole was only so-so at the beginning, after some broken in, it stopped slipping. usually new shoes takes a short amount of time for the sole to break-in as well.
so overall, a reliable pair of shoes that offers good support. ex-SHB89 users should not have problem fitting into the SHB99.
not sure about the price, US$85 is quite a lot of money for a pair of shoes. i don't think i have ever paid so much money for any shoes that i own.

Tad sells it at CAD145 but I still think it is expensive.
