unless u only play on indoor tennis, most good badminton clubs wont let u wear outside shoes on their nice courts.

imho, depend on the court surface. if the club use the rubber surface, tennis shoes should not be a issue. Wipe clean the sole before you enter. If it is nice hardwood floor, make sure it has none marking sole. Like Cooler says, tennis shoes are heavier in nature. I think if you really can not get a pair of badminton shoes, tennis shoes will be a acceptable sub. Why? because I am using one.

Well, I've just gotten a pair of badminton shoes, from Yonex.
I hope I got the right size, it fit just nice... I thought fitting for badminton shoe is better... correct me if I am wrong....
Interestingly, my running shoe is US size 8.5, tennis shoe is US size 8 and badminton shoe is US size 7. Seems to be getting smaller. But of course my tennis shoe feels slightly bigger than my badminton shoe.
I hope the leather of my badminton will stretch a bit...

I have had worn Yonex shoes in the past, however, I've switched to ASICS badminton shoes recently and I have no regret as ASICS does give better support and much better padding than Yonex. Both brands are at similiar price tags, but Yonex shoes doesn't seem last long.
Not sure what's the model name in US, but you can have a look in the following website:-
Hope this will help.

If not, I will have to bring it back to change it, if cannot, then sell it. Anyway, I have no use it yet. The tag is still there.....

Prince makes some really nice tennis shoes that can be worn for Badminton.
I saw another player wearing it and it looked really nice.

I guess the next time when I buy shoes, it should only range from US size 7.5 to 8.5.

badminton shoes feel like running shoes or cross trainer shoes but with more cushioning. they're definitely worth investing in

Your shoes even did not mention in the Yonex website : http://www.yonex.com/badminton/products/shoes.html
I saw last week at Mustafa Centre the Yonex SHB-56 for SGD55 (Red) only while I bought mine during Aviva Open 2006 for SGD59.90 (price at Royal Sporting is SGD79.90).
