    Default DinkALot's Shoe & Insole Review

    Some review assumptions: 235lbs. of happy Panda bouncing around the badminton court. Hence, YMMV (your mileage may vary).

    OK, time for me to...

    Good work.
    Could you add some of the lower end Yonex badminton shoes if you get a chance in the future?

    For people on a budget, I think the old SHB-50 were very good.
    I wasn't so keen on the SHB-58

    Current CentralSports prices
    SHB-99 LE 60
    SHB-100 52
    SHB-99 47
    SHB-90 44
    SHB-89 40
    SHB-71 40
    SHB-70 30.50
    SHB-58 30
    SHB-56 30

    When I got my SHB-50 they were only 20, so where has the bottom of the range gone? Have the 50s been discontinued?

    Thanks Neil, I would but my main problem is finding the correct size 12-13 US. Most stores only carry up to size 11.

    Very impressive! Thanks for the review. I am thinking about getting the SHB-100.

    Tried, biggest size I've seen is 11. I need 12.5 or 13.0 US based on the 11 I tried.

    dink, what do you mean by, "SFO gets too hot and hurts the comfort score?"

    Once again, an excellent and very informative review by Mr. Panda. This thread needs to be a sticky! It just so happens that I am in the market for shoes and insoles, so this review is also very timely! Like david07, I also am wondering what you're working on next. Would love to see a review on shuttlecocks. It's the one big review that is missing on this forum and one that I am sure everyone would love to see. Dink, do you still stand by your previous comment that the Super Feet Blue because of its sharp heel edge may cut into the bottom of the shoe? I was planning to get a pair of expensive SHB-99-LE and would hate to see them deteriorate prematurely.

    Like Capablanca said, a review on shuttles would be great.

    Please read the subtitles above the ranking. You'll notice the 5th one says "SFO = Super Feet Orange".

    Answers:

    1) Please read all the reviews and comments on the 99 and 100. It states get the 99-LE with SFG. If softer, SFB.

    2) SFB still cuts into the insole, not sure how deep it will go though. This is pending...

    3) Shuttle, Racket and Bag reviews coming...hopefully something this weekend...

    Dink, how much do they pay you here at Badminton Central to work full-time? Joking aside, we all really appreciate all of the time, effort, and money you spend to do these thorough reviews/comparisons. Thank you!
