    Called 'Feather Elite' in Germany. But it really is the BT Feather. But adidas thought a handball shoe would sell better than a badminton shoe, so they re-labeled it...can't say they're wrong, though, as most German badminton players follow the simple philosophy of 'Yonex must know how to build a great shoe, after all they're badminton specialists'. It's insane how prejudiced some ppl are in that regard - and how often I get comments on my shoes like "Are those any good? Oh no, they're Victor. Never mind.".

    I've never seen those Feather Elites. I was just in the Adidas store here in Melbourne today, and the only 'feather' shoe in there is this one -

    I'd use those in a heartbeat. Actually they look like they use the same basic philosophy as my beloved Nike Kobe VI's.

    What I don't think people don't realise, is that most badminton shoes don't seem to have been scaled up properly. If say you're over a size 10, I'd recommend you at least try a few other brands on, from shoes in related arenas. Badminton is not that unique when it comes to basic shoe requirements, a whole heap of it is pure marketing. The fact of the matter, is that other companies jumped on the 'low profile, light weight' bandwagon long before the badminton companies did. They're finally there, but something like the Nike Kobe is up to version EIGHT - many, many iterations ahead of even Yonex' best shoe.

    So just get out there and live a little, be adventurous!

    Looks like the adizero prime to me....
    Yeah, there should be a few shoes usable for badminton, although it'll depend on the player. Different players have different needs, and some non-specific shoes lack in a certain area. For example, the Asics Gel Blade 3 is very popular with badminton players around here, but I can't wear it. It's pure murder on my ankle joints - whenever I wear them for more than a casual knockaround, I can schedule 3 days of rest, sometimes more.
    Anyhow, badminton shoes have -generally speaking- less of those weak areas as they're specifically tailored towards badminton needs, mostly offering great side support and decent dampening.

    Of course I've never even touched the Kobes so I have absolutely no idea what I'm missing

    My feather elites (new size) should arrive today or tomorrow. Excited to test them out, although I might wait until after this weekend's tournament to really put them through the paces.

    Those are probably the Adizero Feather tennis shoes ... (adiZero Feather II apparently)
    So, different size for you? Bigger?

    Had a chance to try on the Blade 3, was one size too small but going one size up it would probably still be on the narrow side for me. So pass on those as well
    Now that the exchange rate with the Yen is back to being favourable, probably time to get those 4E models from Japan (probably Wave Fang Wide, though can't find a difference between the old and new colour other than the colour; new colour looks more like a ladies version in comparison )
    Although I have often used handball models in the past with no issues so certain models might be a local alternative still ...

    Well that's it - I remain thoroughly convinced that concepts such as 'side support' and 'decent damping' are not the only realm of badminton shoes, and remain predominantly in the realm of marketing. I mean, most 'badminton players' would look at those Adifeather II and the Kobes and go 'Where's the sideways support?" but they're so psychologically engaged with the meme of having those 'fangs' that project up from the sole on the outside of the typical badminton shoe, that's what they think makes badminton 'special' and other shoes 'inferior'.

    No testing the validity of these memes of course - so much easier just to 'buy in'.

    Anyhoo....yes, don't try new equipment at tournaments. That's one rule I won't mind if you don't break

    Nowhere. The Malaysia distributor didn't bring in this model.

    Only if you have next to no lateral movement. Those shoes are really not a great choice for badminton or any sport with quick changes of direction and lateral movement - the sole is high (making the foot less stable as the cushioning is softer and the lever [distance to the floor] is bigger) and the upper shoe looks kinda soft, offering less stability than it should as well.
    Of course you don't have to stick with labeled badminton shoes to play, but something designed for a sport with similar movement would be advisable (i.e. basketball shoes, light handball shoes, multi-purpose indoor shoes with good lateral support,...Volleyball shoes are generally too high and soft in my experience as there's little lateral movement).

    even with a sprained ankle, shoes actually made the pain go away during game.

    Agree with j4ckie. Wear proper shoes, otherwise ankle or knee sprains can occur, and sometimes one can never recover 100% from them.

    Proper shoes must be low to the ground and the sole must have a curved edge. If not, there will be a day when your ankle will regret it and then it'll be too late.
