by the way, I bought SFB and SFG after checking the detailed reviews, and they are great, after 3 hours of practice.
I am hoping that Sole Softec to be better for my knee.

Update: been using the Sole Softecs for some time now and though they are still tops for performance, for durability they are not so good.
The Softecs last about half as long as my Super Feet and though it states they have anti-bacteria technology, the Softecs really stink. I spray foot spray on my bare feet as well as shoes every time I put on and take-off my badminton shoes (Panda feet don't smell but just in case). I've never had any smell problems with Super Feet but with the Softecs, there's just this lingering musky smell. It's not too bad but it's just not normal, it's weird.
So, after all is said and done, Panda is back to Super Feet due to superior durability and a nicer smell.

As for the smell, I haven't had any problems, I rinse them out after every use. They are dry by the next day.
Which superfeet are you using? The SFB even though they cut up your yonex shoes?
Have you tried the Softec ultras? I thought that after three weeks they might be worn down to regular cushioning

My SHB-90M stock insole recently worn out pretty bad around the forefoot area (anterior side of the ball of the feet in my left shoe while the area of my big toe is worn out on my right shoe). So I've been considering changing the insole to some SF instead of looking to buy a new pair of shoes but I'm not sure which one to go for. I know it all comes down to personal preference, but I read that the choice between SFO, SFG and SFB were all about the shoe type. So are the SHB-90M considered as a Stiff shoe or a Soft shoe?
Thanks for your answer

Somebody know bout Victor shoes?? I kind a interested in them. Any opinion guys????? thanx

I read that the main issue are the insoles, that wear out faster compared to other badminton-dedicated shoes.
But I heard you can order separate insoles from asics or special victor ones for around USD 15.--
You might also want to have a look at this thread.
This guys decision fell on victor shoes after testing quite many^^
Hope thet helps a bit.

My ultra-pancake feet caused some knee, heel and bunion pain, so in the end went to a podiatrist and got a pair of custom orthotics made. Worked like a dream, had to reduce the number of sessions a week to heal from the pain, and now back up there again, without problems so far
However, I would still definitely recommend the Ortaheels for the general players out there though, very comfortable and supportive, and at a pretty reasonable price in the UK as well (about half the price of Superfeet in the UK, if you search for it online).
