Spenco Ironman All Sport
Anyone tried this one yet? Local website describes it as suitable for a wide range of sports, including those stop-start sport like basketball, tennis, volleyball and badminton
(Not to be confused with http://www.amazon.com/Ironman-Sport-.../dp/B001ID1G2O)
Almost thought it was only available here since it's not even listed on the Spenco website but: http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=10801944
20% of as well at Dick's on all of the insoles including the Total Support untill Nov. 21 if you were thinking about getting one for you locals

the iron man insole page on dick's sports page describes it as having low friction. but don't we want more friction for badminton?
i have the polysorbs and i like them a lot.

Iron Man has or had some kind of colabo with Spenco (so there should be no difference, just in the packaging): http://ironman.com/ironstuff/irongea...#axzz1eMBhbEuI

did you order a pair? perhaps you can post a brief review after trying?

Well I'm not in the US so didn't need to order before the offer ended because they don't ship abroad anyway . Shipping was free as well for the Dick's offer ...
Will have a look in the local Footlocker, actually spotted some Spenco's there the other week but had no prices on it and wasn't the Total Support anyway iirc; and as a friend brother said that used to work at Footlocker that's what they make the most money on so will probably order online anyway. Just checking if anyone had used the All Sports so in case they are crap I wouldn't have to bother trying and perhaps get two Total ones. Don't know what Mark A paid but the Totals here are 28 euro and the All Sport is €15 ...

Looking at trying a Spenco Polysorb Total support. Do they help flat feet much? Getting some arch pains sometimes while playing. Going into a Victor SH8500

Updating shoe review with some surprising results:
Best shoe for heavier players: Victor SHW8000 with Polysorb Total Support insoles
Best overall shoe: Victor SH9000 ACE with Polysorb Total Support insoles
Will have a permanent link for the shoe review as well as all the other reviews with updates hopefully some time this week.

oh, and have you tried the new yonex f1's? I read that F1 MX is wider than the F1 Ltd which is wider than SHD86ex.

I have read that the polysorb total support insoles have a huge squeaking noise problem from an amazon review: http://www.amazon.com/review/R14VOD3...0901&store=hpc
Granted the review is from 4 years ago, does this problem still apply? I plan to use this insole for more than just my badminton shoes so I just wanted to see if Dink experienced the same problem.
Otherwise, I would definitely want to get these insoles as my previous ones are worn and ripped.

@Tactim: this Panda has never had a problem with the Polysorb Total Support squeaking. That reviewer most likely "achieved" the squeaky problem by heating the insole. Though Spenco says the insole is heat moldable this Panda would not do it. The foam of the insole is not dense enough to take heat molding, at least not for any effective heat molding. Not like Softec Ultra insoles which are very heat moldable.
Best just to let the foot create a natural mold over time.
Relative to other supports, the only problem Panda has is the thin silver, plastic heel support piece breaking at the edge. Even when broken, you won't notice and the insole still performs.
Panda still thinks the Spenco Polysorb Total Supports are the best overall insole for badminton, especially for the price.
