Dang!!!.....u guys keep saying it's fake...Sgbad already said it's from Yonex and retailing in major sports stores...hah...well, it's understandable...u guys haven't seen it....it looks almost like the high-end shoes....but it doesn't have Super-Cushion...i've seen it..it's for players who want look more than feel....lol....it's jus like any low end shoe, with the looks of the high end ones...

If anyone remembers this thread, then do read, if curious. Here's the very brief review from my friend who used the look-alike of SHB 100. He bought it for SGD48 from Queensway.
Shoe: Ultima 100
Looks: Nice. seems almost like the actual high-end shoe.
Comfort: lousy..not much cushioning....same cushioning effect as any low-end yonex shoe.
Sole: stiff..but has decent grip...
Overall feel: not much comfortable..not worth the money...
he prefers a cheaper Victor shoe he bought from Malaysia..
that was my friend's review...i would say, if u are comfortable with any other low-end yonex shoes, then the Ultima series shouldn't be a problem. It would seem good. But those used to high-end shoes, u might not wanna try these.

so,did u buy them??
03-21-2008, 09:31 AM #25
Lol...no way i'd buy that...maybe i'll buy it for casual wear....but even for casual wear, there are better shoes for that amount of money....another friend of mine had bought it recently...and he wore it to play today.....he shared the same view as my other friend....the outer-sole is too stiff...maybe needs seasoning, but still a bit too stiff....plus normal cushioning.....so comfort-wise, it's realli just a normal low-mid range shoe......

just dont expect SGD48 can do wonder of SHB-99 Limited......
03-21-2008, 04:46 PM #27
Wow...u managed to a pic of all three in one....those outside of Singapore n Malaysia can see it now........
and of cos, if SGD48 could do the wonders of SHB99, i guess by now, the Ultima series would be out-of-stock....
but how come ur box says "Power Cushion"??....it isn't supposed to have rite.....or does that box belong to another shoe?

I have just bought a pair of Yonex shoes but I am not certain about its quality.
The Model is Yonex Ultima 99 Pro.
See pictures below:
What I suspect is that inside the right foot shoe, there is a label named: "Made in China - Official replica"
I'd like to know if it is a genuine or fake Yonex shoe?
Is there any official source from Yonex saying that this serie is genuine?

the ultima series are probably "asian models only". they almost look exactly the same with the original models except that they don't have yonex's patented "power cushion" and midsole stabilizer features which are very critical especially for badminton. if you risk injuring your feet and knees, then the ultima series might be the shoe for you. . .

the latest models in singapore are ultima 100 pro and ultima 65, clones of shb100ltd and shb65r.

Ultima is'nt fake nor is it a clone but I do not recommend it. SHB shoes are more expensive but more durable, safe & comfortable as they have lateral claw & power cushion incorperated.
btw, Ultima is alot cheaper than SHB, so if you are on a budget then consider Ultima but it is not very durable so expect it to break in around 6 months.
I got my Ultima for around $50 while SHB is somewhere around $200.

i will not recommend the ultima either since it lacks the safety features that are very critical for badminton.
i would rather be getting other reputable models with better standards and reasonable prices.
