    Hope this helps.

    I think the bottom of the range (relates to middle-top of yonex range) shoes retail for around £40 which is cheap for a pair of badminton shoes. And the performance is identical to yonex, here is a UK website: http://forzabadminton.co.uk/footwear.asp giving details of the shoe. I've tried them myself and honestly can say they are awesome! There is a £10 difference between the sh550s and the sh800's, £10 is simply for cosmetics in my opinion.

    Maybe you could try ringing the contact number on the Forza website and they probably could sort something out over the phone. Or somewhere like central sports or inbadminton.co.uk could sort some shipping issues out. There is also ebay! but unlikely to have forza stuff on there.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Dinkalot,

    I can send SH 800 Black or Gold to you, If you're interested. My shop sold them for €72, certainly less because there is a special bargain because of Xmas ... Every sizes are available.

    I can send a pair to you with free shipping ...


    Let me know If you don't find any Fz sellers in the U.S., I'd enjoy helping my GPD ()

    Default Appearance-wise, the Forza shoes look quite nice indeed...

    ...Chilefeu, after looking @ them, i'm also interested in purchasing...But after seeing another website, Central Sports, also located in the U.K.(unfortunately i couldn't find any FZ retailers here in the U.S.), i think their prices are more closer to the actual MSRP..Although i don't know how much CS charges for the S&H fee...
    Here's the site which i found those FZ shoes, Central Sports:
    http://www.centralsports.co.uk/shop....e&category=417
    Btw, this is not your store, is it Chilefeu??
    *A bit off topic:
    I also noticed on that same website, they have several items on sale/clearance, incl. a few Yonex items and their SHB-98LX:

    (scroll all the way down)..

    Hi ctjcad,

    Well It seems to be the same price here in France : €74 at central sports and €72 at lardesports. Here is their website: http://83.206.164.62/RentaSoft/Appli...ARDE/index.htm

    I have to Check if there are any shoes remaining. They have sold a lot because of Xmas. But they are able to order any whenever you like from their supplier

    That being said, Have a glance at centralsports.uk. Check shipping's costs. Merchandise costs about the same, no more than $5 differences.
    As for shipping,If it's about 6-10 euros ($ 8-12 ~~) for shipping then It's the same price in France anyway. So, You don't gain or save up anything.

    Yet, I'm ready to help you as a last resort, If you don't succeed in ordering shoes. I don't make profit, remember that, It's just my free time ...

    Thanks,
    (Sorry for my poor english again and again )

    ..for whatever reason, that your price of €74, for the FZ SH 800, was in Euros NOT British Pound ..Sorry..
    So, in that case, then i believe your store has a "better" deal than CS, if you also take into consideration you'll charge no S&H fees. (I actually sent CS an email inquiring abt their S&H fee for international shipment and am still waiting for their reply).
    Anyways, thanks for the link to the lardesports website.
    *Btw, do you know if lardesports have any sale/clearance items, like they have on the CS website??..hehe

    Hi all,

    Lardesports.com is closed until 3th January. Nevertheless I ordered them a pair of Fz SH800 shoes, I'll give you my review on it
    I can order some new pair of shoes as soon as the shop will be open again, So if it can help ... Ask me

    I point out I will make a comparison between SH800 and SHB-99 only. I have SH 500 (not 550) but they wore out and started torned apart, Therefore I keep them for football

    Thumbs up

    Hi all,

    I have received MY SH800 Here are some pics :






    The look is great, and These shoes are even lighter than The SHB-99 !!!
    They seem to be more resistant too. At least better than my SH500 That have lasted only 6 months

    I'll let you know my review, as soon as I have tried them on court.

    Hi Badgone,

    I'm from Châlons-en-Champagne Near Reims.

    I ordered these shoes on XXXmas day, But hopefully I received them today before my tourney

    As for the alternative between SHB90 and SH800, I would go for for the Forza. WHY ?
    - same price,
    - SH800 are the newest, and seems to be the same than SHB99 when it comes to the look. (We'll see how it performs on court).
    - seems equal to SHB-90 when it comes to talk about durability. (I have to check on a long time but I'm pretty sure SH800 are more durable.)

    SH800 review:

    Well, My first impressions on court are quite bad. I had big problems, It was too much slippery.
    I guess a Break-in period is necessary

    Other than that, excellent shoes. They are even lighter than SHB-99, I can really feel it in my game. It's almost like I don't wear any shoes. Furthermore, they are more comfortable than My Yonex SHb-99 .
    My feet were Perfectly held.

    Great ones

    Lardesports Has hundreds of them available in every sizes, So If I can help...Ask.
