    Default 2016 Yonex New Shoes (SHB-65, SHB-65W, SHB-CFWM)

    So now the 65 range provides full coverage from 2E (65XS), 3E (old 65X, current 65) and 4E wide (65W)

    Aka the 2015 HK open "Carsten Mogensen" shoes:



    4E version:




    "Mathias Boe" shoes, 4E Mid SHB-CFWM (lol, seriously, Cushion Comfort Wide Mid):



    As usual, the red version could be for EX markets only, as is the way with the orange and pink SHBAMX/SHBALX that are not sold in Japan.

    Also, the red version doesn't seem especially "mid", thus could be EX:

    What/which exactly looks like a basketball shoe?? They have had mid-high versions for years already; there is only one extra eyelet compared to the regular low version. Hardly a high top ...

    SHB-CFWM,... the high ankle cut is very similar to basketball shoes or boxing shoes. Most badminton shoes have low ankle cut. Well... i've seen similar design on tennis shoes but it's quite rare. Hence, i am asking IF this design of high ankle cut, able to give more protection to ankle?

    What for, the shoes aren't made for basketball anyway...

    Like how Mizuno Wave Lightning are volleyball shoes, but not purpose built for badminton.

    I did not say it is made for basketball shoes, i was asking if having a high-cut ankle would give more support for weak ankle or maybe just for style purpose? Nobody would say Yonex make basketball shoes... that's the job for reebok, nike, and alikes. Anyway, i guess i'll just have to wait till the release date and go check 'em at yonex dealer.

    In the meantime, isn't SHB-Aerus part of 2016 releases?

    Yeah sorry my bad, seems to have misread the post.

    Apparently it does, but not by much, but your yonex dealer if not in japan likely won't have it...
