I have interest to get a pair of insoles that having superb cushioning.
Just want guys to clarify that the insole you ( and DinKAlot ) mentioning is
1. Spenco® PolySorb® Total Support

Many thanks !

Also as far as shoes are concerned, how do the Victor V-SH 8500 compare as they seem to be one of only two victor pairs readily available in the uk... And are also discounted (marginally). Any experience of them?

You really need American insoles if you want something decent - Superfeet or PolySorb - but they're overpriced even if you import them. However, they can turn mediocre shoes into good ones, and good ones into great ones. I have a pair of PS Total Supports in SHB-101s, and the difference they offer of those dreadful wavy stock inserts is gigantic.
W.r.t SH 8500, I have it on good authority that they are the same width (i.e. too bloody narrow) as the 8600 and come with the Talon Guard. They're also a pain in the arse to get from UK.

I have a SHB 200EX shoes that I am using for a few months lately experiencing pain on bottom of my left heel. So considering using an insole to see if it would rectify the problem.
So in case I get a PolySorb Total Support do I remove the existing insole inside SHB200EX and insert the PS Total Support or does it go on top of the existing insole. Please advice

Hi, asking the same question..Do we rip out the original insole?
Hope Dinkalot can help. I have tried adding the polysorb but its too tight (shb101)
Buying either the new 8600ace or the shb102 but feel its such a shame to discard one of the features that the shoe's enhanced price demands..
Are there any badminton shoes thats actually made with a change/add of insoles intended ??

Yes, for every instance, you need to remove the original insole and then place in the replacement insole. If it's an addition, it should say it's supplemental or an addition to the insole.
With the exception of ultra-premium running shoes, just about all non-custom shoes made have just an average or basic insole.

I am really glad for this thread and thanks for the inputs.
Best thing I could do for my ankles and my game. I found my shb101 original insole to provide little cushioning and feels a little more than a piece of cardboard.

I recently discovered the currently discontinued Sof Sole Stability Performance insoles, and here is a little review I would like to share.
Most of the cushioning insoles that I can find in the market tend to have this characteristic, which is that they have a thick and more often than not, noticeably overweight body compared to the stock insoles that come with badminton shoes. However, the Sof Sole Stability is one of the lightest insoles that I have ever encountered, especially given the fact that I would not want to change the feel of the shoes too much from the "stock feel" in terms of making it feel heavier etc.
As a test, I weighed the Sof Sole Stability and compared them to the stock insoles that I obtained from the SHB200WM and SHB81WM. The stock Yonex insoles average at 30gm each while the Sof Sole averages at 48gm, which is a 18gm increase from the stock although it is very unnoticeable once my feet fit into the shoes.
In terms of specs, the Sof Sole Stability has a pretty flat arch reminiscent of the stock insoles which is good for almost all types of feet and cushioning thick enough to not make the overall shoe fit feel elevated. The foot cup is made of a soft dual density plastic which when I land hard on my heel during big lunges, does not make me notice the fact that it is made of plastic at all. The material itself is quite tough but yet gives adequate cushioning which gives me the correct amount of bounce that I like during lunges and landings from jump smashes. The deep heel cup also fits snugly into my foot each and gives me that comfortable sunk-in feel.
Another magnificent thing that I find about it is that out of the box, it fits my super-wide 4E shoes nicely at the same size of the shoe. There is however a very small 2mm gap at the very tip to the side of the toe area but having used the insoles for two months now my toes have yet felt the gap being there nor have they gotten themselves caught in the gaps even during extreme lunges. For this matter, those wearing the normal 3E shoe sizes may want to trim the top a little for a better fit.
