Just gave them a good outing tonight doing drills with a coach, they seem ok to use and the movement with the insole is virtually zero now.
I made sure I done mostly front court work with a lot of lunging, round the head jumping clips, jump lunges etc. to make sure the trainers were up to it.
Nothing bad to report with the only exception being I think they lack a bit of cushioning when landing from jumps (or maybe it's the extra weight I'm carrying at the moment being detrimental to jumping)

Hmm, from a store in Taiwan, the quote I got yesterday for a pair of SHB-99MX was 40% off the MSRP (NT$3200, US$1=NT$31.5)....

I got mine today (Backup pair since I won't be shoppin badminton gear for a long time plus SHB98MX no more size for me.) I got size 8.5 and it feels not nicer but almost the same as my SHB98MX size 8. But this is a tad comfier for some unknow reason, prolly cause it's wider.
Prolly I'll alternate between the SHB98 and 99 when I play in Perth and give a review of it then.

ohh... i don't know about this one... i liked how the 98's were lighter and more jumpy... i like the LOOK of this shoe...but really, i don't think I'll be as satisfied with it as my 98's... most of my friends got the 89's for the ankle support, but i've never had any problems with twisting my ankles... also i'm debating if i should get the low ones, since i'm used to low badminton shoes, but damn that silver looks sooooo ugly ><"

a comment about the 99 LOW:
i asked the person in the badminton equipment shop in taichung (the yonex flagship store) what is the difference between the 99 MX and 99 LOW. he told me that the LOW was a special edition from the Sudiman Cup or something.. he didn't mention any other differences though

Actually, not exactly the arches, but more like the connection portion of arch and heel. Feel like wear high heel for a bit...

just got the 99 mx in the size of 10. they feel a little bit small but they fit ok once I change to thin socks. I ordered online so I guess I should buy them in 11 next time. I havent got a chance to play with them on the court yet, but I have experienced the movement of the insole when I wore them at home trying to break them in.

Since then, I've tied them a little bit tighter and not noticed it since.

hi guys. I have noticed there is a serial of numbers printed in red at the bottom of the shoes as you can see if the insoles are removed. mine is the same number for both right and left shoes. I wonder what the number means because which happens to be my birthday.
