    nike, no doubt, is nice. I'm still using my good old nike indoors, but... before turning to yonex 99, i'd like to check out all possibilities . Sorry for using your topic!

    Nah, the more opinions, the better. I'll check out some Prince shoes, if I can find any here.

    I think Prince makes better court shoes than Nike. Nike's strength is in running and basketball shoes (most popular shoes for their market niche). Heck! Even New Balance make better running shoes than Nike.

    If you want the best brand court shoes with good features and durability, they're either Hi-Tec, Mizuno, and ASICS. Yonex makes decent court shoes but their specialty still lies in their racquets.

    Mizuno Wave Lightning and WL II rule for sure, so do, for example, assics gel-blast. But mizuno is made for volleyball and gel-blast - for handball, other asics - also for volleyball. Doesn't badminton demand some kind of specifics like durable toe-in, etc.? Otherwise, volleyball/handball/squash shoes should be appropriate.

    Well, the specifics for those shoes suits a heavier player and their lateral support are pretty good considering volleyball and badminton share some similarity in court movement. Vb shoes are made for verticals in mind, so it's ideal for you if you do alot of jump smash or hopping. It's definitely more durable than badminton specific shoes. IMO, the lack of reinforced toe-in area (if there's none) and heavier weight are small tradeoffs for those shock dispersion features that are so vital for reducing the impact on the joints. Also due to those features, Vb shoes are a little more elevated so the chances of rolled ankles are slightly higher but in my personal experience I have only two or three incidents that would cause me some concern. As long as your footwork is fine, there shouldn't any problem. Actually the only serious rolled ankle incident I got was when I was wearing my old YY SHB 65 but back then I was just 2 years into regular baddy play.

    I am not too familiar with Adidas but don't they have more expertise in soccer and running? I would rather trust companies like Mizuno and ASICS that have longer association with court shoes for good quality.

    the black asics or mizuno would do just fine - it's just that they're hell of expensive

    Well, you could either get those shoes or get cheaper ones w/o all the support and end up with premature bum knees and the medical fees associated with that. Either way, you still have to pay.

    Depending on frequency of play, one good pair of shoes would last me around a year. Much less if I play lots. Actually my Mizuno was 'retired' early cuz the fit wasn't right, otherwise I would still be wearing it.

    No kidding... who wants to spend lots on shoes when they're already spending lots on racquets. Kwun uses Yonex shoes which isn't exactly cheap. Also, you could save lots of money if you know where to source your shoes.
