Thread: DinkALot's Shoe & Insole Review
08-24-2010, 04:38 PM #171
this thread needs to be more active again
My SHB101MX are soon to be retired, I have bought myself a pair of 91MX to use to replace the 101MX, I might give the 91MX a tryout tomorrow. And will give a initial review on it and comparison to 101MX
Btw I got my 91MX quite cheap, as they are no longer in production. They were 45% off RRP. So I was bought them.

Panda has since found a new benchmark: Victor SHW8000 ACE and Spenco PolySorb Total Support (PSTS) Insoles!
Got the shoes here:
The PSTS are softer, more forgiving than the SFB and don't cut into the base of the shoe, no hard plastic pieces.
Panda will do a detailed review soon, after more testing.
But after 2 months trying the 8000ACE with the PSTS the shoe:
1) performs and transitions as well as the SHB-100 LTD
2) cushions better than any dedicated badminton Panda has tried
3) most comfortable badminton shoe Panda has tried next to the 99-LTD
4) widest badminton shoe
Panda also ordered the 8600 ACE and will test those soon but don't expect much difference.

What a coincidence: I also reserved a pair of the 8600ACE on Monday. I see the soles are sold here as well and a good bit cheaper than SF(B) even at the same store ...

Have you try the new SHB 101 dink? I believe they are quite similar to sh8600 with the lateral claw.
08-24-2010, 08:47 PM #175
Yes, the 101 MX and LTD. They are not as good overall. The shoes are not as comfortable nor provide as much cushioning. Will review update soon, most questions should be answered then.

Now you are tempting me to change my 101 to SHW8600....... LOL

What do you think about 92M and 85LTD??
I want to buy it plz recommend.

I've tried these and compared to SFB and SFG i like them better. I have a collapsed arch and slightly wide feet E / EE.
They cost about $20 on amazon so a little more affordable, would like to know panda's opinion.

Scratch my earlier reply as it seems panda found out about spenco a month before me.
The Spenco PolySorb Total Support is not in a Gel version.
they look like this

Yonex SHB 92m, is this shoe durable enough ?

The 8000 ACE is significantly wider than the 8600.
Panda has wide feet and fits the 8000 width-wise.
Panda does not fit the 8600.
As for "last", Victor is referring to "shoe last" which is the mold or shape in which the shoe is made from, usually plastic or similar poly material.
So a standard shoe last means a standard width shoe mold. A wide shoe last means wide shoe mold.

Many thanks! 8000 ACE for me then, I have broad feet

Anbody know where to get the 8000 in Europe?
12-17-2010, 02:36 PM #187
The names are different here: the other coloured ones are called VICTOR V-LSS 9600 and VICTOR V-LSS 9700. I suggest you look in the international catalogue, the ACE might not even be available here and the one above ("Victor '09") could be imported then ...
