Mine lasted for less than 6 months. Played 5-6 days a week. So far, i've only worn Yonex. So not sure if it's the actual shoe that doesnt last or just the way i play. My current shoes also yonex and nearly worn out. So looking for different brand now, maybe Mizuno if i can find them.

adidas indoor shoes are far better than yonex

I play every day - and my two pairs of Mizuno shoes lasted nearly 3 years.
Does that mean each pair would have lasted twice that long if I had played only every alternate day?
My Wilson shoes were good for more than a year (14 months).
They were more comfortable than the Mizunos but wore out quite fast.
The Yonex SHB-100LTD is, by far, the best shoes I've worn for badminton.
Excellent traction, very flexible, snug and very comfortable... and not too bad-looking either.
It's less than half a year now... and the soles still seem alright.
I wonder if they will outlast the Wilsons

i used the yonex sh(somehting)-99 the red and white one for only about 3 months and it's starting to bust out holes. i had the limited edition one which lasted much longer but i switched because the grip wore out. anyone know any stores in california that sells mizuno shoes?

That Was Fast!
The leading edges began showing wear in just a month.
They are now wearing thin very very fast!
Worse, the first tear has appeared on the side
Mizuno* - 17 months (two pairs lasted 34 months)
Wilson SH-121W - 14 months (two pairs lasted 28 months)
Yonex SHB-100 Limited Edition - 9 months!
*I can't recall the model but it looks like the Smash Wave SG2.
Since the Mizunos cost me SGD 168 and the Yonex too was around that, I'm now at a loss to choose the next pair.
The value-for-money principle suggests Wilson but the comfort value suggests Yonex again.

I play 2-3 times a week for about 3 hours each session. I had Yonex limited 100mx's that lasted ~9 months from a weird tear... My shoes were slightly tight to begin with and apparently I push too hard on my right foot when I jump or lunge. I ended up getting a tear on the outer part of the right shoe. =/ Can't comment on the cushion.
My friend plays 3 hours a week and his yonex 70's? have apparently lasted over 2 years.

Hey~! Looks like Im not the only one. My SHB-100Ltd lasts me 9 months too. Rubber outsole on the left forefoot are worn out. Would be slippery when running around the court.
I am planning to get SHB-99Low (similar to 99Ltd, but w/o the sling black bag and cheaper). Will this pair is better, more comfort & last longer than 100Ltd ?

My shb100s are coming to a year, 9months, still standing, grip is still good, but the lateral claw is tearing.

How long does a pair of badminton shoes last?
As long as you don't wear it and walk on the street, only get it change when enter the indoor enviroment. should be last pretty long.
I bought a Mizuno Wave Smash SG2...feeling really great and really grip to the ground, and it is light weight as well. It's completely different to my old Yonex SHB-99 Low (same as Lee Chong WEi's one), so i highly recommend the Mizuno Wave Smash SG2 to all of you.

My 5 pairs of mizuno shoes (badminton and running) worked very well for me and their shoes lasts a long time (for me) so I have no problem throwing extra dough at them. I recently acquired the wave smash sg to relegate my not really aging '06 wave gate as my secondary court shoe.

well basically my Yonex shoes wont worn out that fast. I changed my shoe every 1 year.
i use a mid end yonex, and after a year, only the sole lose its grip. the yellow rubber is hardened, so it slips.....
the durability of the shoe depends on:
- Taking care of the shoe ( only use it in indoor surface )
- Surface of the court
- Playing style
currently, the left side of my shoe look more worn out than the right side.
i dont really know how did this happen. maybe when i was about to catch a drop, i use the tip of my left foot(behind) to assist the right foot(in front)
