    Default are squah shoes okay? DO i need a new pair?

    I have these, a few other poeple in my club do as well. They were dirt cheap..

    http://www.prosportuk.com/detail/17/206/744

    I only ask because most places are saying that good footwear is more important than a racket, which i gues can be true because if I get he right footwork and everything I get to shots quicker and also get a lot more power into my clearances etc...

    Are those shoes okay? I an always get some forza trainers like these...

    that squash shoes are good for light duty badminton and don't look that good. U will move around better wif better shoes. Forza design themes are all copied from yonex LOL. That squash shoes aren't cheap like u think because it won't last half of the time of better shoes. U just gave me an idea

    Damn those eforza shoes look good.

    I also agree that though it's hard to tell from photos, I'm not sure how long those squash shoes will last for intensive badminton. But if you already have them, I suggest playing in them and seeing how they feel, and if they are uncomfortable or aren't giving the unique support badminton requires, buy a new pair.

    My club is sponsored by forza rep so all members can get 30% off all their products. Not many use it though, most members are like me, just started, but I want shoes and a decent racket.

    Not so interesting to me. I would expect it. Maybe the S-Player wanted a lighter, more responsive shoe.
