    Default New Winex Badminton Shoes

    Winex is in the process of releasing a new shoe model. I haven't got too much details yet but will be getting a pair for evaluation (pretty good timing as I was in the market for another pair of badminton shoes)

    The new model is CF-909 Thunder Bird. According to the info, the shoe is manufactured in China in a factory which is also the OEM for Nike, Yonex and Reebok.

    Very nice shoes ... Are they for men or women? Let us know how they are. If they are good, that'd make my Xmas gift shopping this year easier.

    The orange part of the sole looks like CHEESE!!....
    But if the price is right, I wouldn't mind buying a pair to try them out.

    Default Ok la..

    Looks are decent more towards plain. The colour is more suitable for women. I believe we call this colour "how por" blue. Or for better translation "horny woman blue." Nothing against any women posters here on BC. That is the direct translation from Cantonese to English.

    I don't know how much the shoes will be selling for as it is brand new and I just got this as an advanced notification.

    Didn't know that the blue used is being referred to as "horny woman" blue. I thought the colours are pretty nice.

    Zero, you are right, the yellow/orange parts of the sole looks like swiss cheese

    They are available in all sizes and for both men and women.

    "how por" blue
    That's a HK slang, but it accurately describes the color! As soon as one says it, everybody would immediately know what color one is talking about!

    Default Got the shoes

    The shoes came in today so I get to do an evaluation.

    The blue is a lot darker than the one shown in the pictures. I am also waiting for more information on the materials used and the shoes are pretty light.

    This is what I have been told so far. The shoes are manufactured by the same factory that did Nike, Reebok and Yonex. The sole pattern is from Yonex (no patent) and is supplied by the factory.

    The shoes are supposed to be comparable to the Yonex SHB-80

    Pretty nice shoes. Especially if the actual blue is a little darker. I wish I knew somewhere that sold Winex shoes here in Toronto. I am guessing that they'd be cheaper than Yonex shoes.

    Shoes are a little more difficult to distribute as the sizes varies. If there are enough interest for the folks in Canada, I might be able to special order the shoes with the proper sizes.

    Reynar,
    Hopefully before too long, there will be a retailer in Toronto who will be carrying the Winex line of products.

    Winex West Canada, there is a store that sells some of the racquets but they don't seem to have any on display or in stock.

    Oh well.

    Reynar,
    You are talking about Lee's Badminton, right?

    Jennifer gets her stock from Hong Kong and is not an authorized Winex retailer and as such the warranty on the racquets is not recognized within Canada.

    WWC, what is the warranty and what exactly does it cover?

    Manufacturer's warranty on the racquets is quite standard. Six months against manufacturer's defects.
