    Default Prince Badminton Shoes

    Believe Prince just released this pair of badminton shoes in Singapore. Cost around S$45 or US$30. I tried it on and thought it was quite cushioned and soft. Was tempted to buy but resisted eventually.

    That's my latest pair of shoes.. was using the Yonex SHB99 before this.

    I can honestly say its one of my best shoes I've ever had. First time I'm wearing Prince, I've tried Yonex, Nike, Hi-Tec before.. but I think I'm going to stick to this pair of shoes. I find it light, easier to 'fly' around the court, and its flexible. Plus the grip is excellent, no sliding around, not even the first time I wore it(Yonex shoes usually needs some breaking in). If you drag your feet you get the squeaky sound easily.

    Of course, I really like it mainly because it's light. Others may find the sole too thin for their liking though, but I prefer thin soles.

    Excellent buy. Haha, yes I really am pleased with this pair of shoes.

    Those are whipper grips i guess. I tried them before, but felt they are rather slippery.

    I took the photo at the Pacific distributor. Understand from the boss that the whipper grips are produced in the same factory as Pacific.
