    aside from the weight issue, is there a difference between tennis shoes and badminton shoes with regards to how it should function relating to the sport of badminton? i mean, obviously basketball shoes were not meant to be used for badminton...how about tennis shoes? can it pass for badminton?

    Obviously, you can still wear tennis shoes on a badminton court. Wether they function the same way is a different question.

    If you see a person wear tennis shoes playing badminton, most likely they don't play at a high level. It's the first thing I look at when trying to judge another person's standard of play. If they wear tennis shoes, then I

    I think you meant any other shoes. Eg track shoes.

    my bruised toenail on my right foot eventually came off and the doctor had to apply antiseptic cream and bandage my toe. The new toenail came out in a few weeks time.

    ..IMO, it's true that *in general* and *most of the time*, people who play baddie tends to wear baddie shoes.
    However, we can't really say or judge those people, who wears tennis/track/non-badminton shoes, as having a "lower" level of play or vice versa, all the time. Certainly not on what they are wearing. However, those cases are more common in a recreational or casual or "non-serious" situations. Unless, of course they are playing competitively/professionally(which i think is what Cheung probably meant).
    As an example, I'm sure we (at least myself) have seen, one time or another, people wearing baddie shoes playing against other people who wears tennis/track/non-baddie shoes and their levels are not the same as those who wear non-baddie shoes. (Ex. I can be wearing the newest, most up-to-date Yonex shoes and be playing against Tony Gunawan who'll wear a reg. non-baddie/tennis shoes, and i'm sure he'll put me to shame in no time)

    I agree with ctjcad on that one, I know some really top players here who sometimes when we go play they didnt bring their shoes or were working out and didnt think they were gonna play badminton. So they might play wth some other shoes on BUT because they have the footowrk already there is less likleyhood for them to injure themself that if it was somebody who didnt have that footwork but the risk is still there that they could hurt themself. I remember my coach, Greg Bury would sometimes just coach in regular running shoes if he was to lazy to put on his court shoes and he would do all the demos and all that in them too, play a few games even but that was in the past now he puts on badminton court shoes 99% of the time.

    yup, newlink has good prices for Yonex shoes and bags. SHB90M for $90, no need to bargain, good stock of various sizes.

    Hi !

    I am using Badminton shoes for indoor badminton courts and I am also playing @ outdoor(concrete court). I am not using my indoor court shoes in outdoor courts.

    So, I am using my running shoes for playing in outdoor(concrete) courts. Though the cushion is good, but I am getting lower ankle pain when I use the running shoes.

    Can Tennis shoes be the better solution for playing badminton in outdoor(concrete) courts ?

    Thanks

    I don't know what your level of badminton is, but there are quite some notable differences between tennis and badminton shoes. Even with tennis shoes, there are differences, as there are more surfaces to play on (clay, hardcourt, grass). Badminton shoes tend to be more flexible, lighweight and have a thinner sole to 'feel' the (contact of the) ground for quick movements. Tennis shoes are more 'robust', thicker and have a different sole pattern, as the movements in tennis are less intricate compared to badminton. If you really have to look for shoes with a better shock absorbtion in the sole, I may suggest you to look for volleyball/handball shoes. Those tend to be almost the same as badminton shoes, but are much more sturdier and have a thicker shock absorbing sole. In my competition, I see a lot of the male players wearing these kind of shoes (as the Dutch people are quite heavy/larger built )

    Thanks for the suggestions. My skill level is intermediate and with regard to Volleyball/HandBall shoes, I don't find it online in my region. I need to check with some sports shops for that.

    Few in the forum suggest not to use the Indoor court shoes for outdoors and few suggest a new shoe for outdoor use( so regular shoes won't make the Indoor court dirtier)

    I am ready to buy a new pair of Indoor court Badminton shoes(for concrete outdoor courts) if that shoe's life would be good in concrete courts. Is it a wise idea to buy Indoor court shoe for outdoor use ? How about the life of court shoes for outdoor use ?

    I can't tell you what's better for outdoor, but I can tell you that badminton shoes are a lot lighter than any volleyball / handball shoes I've had before.
    When I was playing volleyball I was used to wear the Adidas stabil series which are still very good. They are very solid. But on badminton court, they are too bulky and too heavy. It was a great experience when I was wearing my first badminton shoes. It's totally different.
    I think badminton shoes are very compatible to any other indoor sports because badminton shoes are light AND solid. The only thing is: If you're looking for high-cut badminton shoes, there are only a few models in the market. I think Lin Dan has worn some high / mid cut models.

    And also worth to mention: There are some great looking badminton shoes on the market
