    (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.

    The polysorbs (total) have a similar low friction toplayer according to their promo vid. And also according to the description on Dick's "Low friction antimicrobial top cloth prevents blisters and odor". I can't find anything in Yonex' description of their soles that the waves are there to stop or minimize any slipping although you'd assume it. As long as you have the correct size and lace up well that should be enough anyway imo. The friction with these waves heats up your feet is what I feel

    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

    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.

    Sir, you need to read more carefully. It cannot be said any more clearly.

    One is the best shoe for heavier players and the other is best overall.

    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. It is no wider than the standard Yonex 3E width and I will not recommend it for people who have wide, voluminous feet. For that, Yonex (or Mizuno) 4E shoes is the only option..

    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.
