    Default Shoes Either 1) stick with same 2) upgrade 3) buy cheap alternative

    Im currently using Yonex SHB90MX, 29.5 cm, EU 4?.5 (labels have rubbed off).
    i believe i will need to go 0.5cm larger next time as these took a very long time to wear in and have been stretched? They need replacing soon anyway so its just making the decision and actually finding the shoes in my size.....

    soooo....

    1) stick with the same (not my old ones ofc buy new) i know they are comfortable once worn in good stability etc, just need 0.5cm larger

    2) upgrade to say SHB91MX or SHB100 etc and pay extra for better quality

    3)buy cheap alternative like carlton, fleet etc will they last

    Any Suggestions?

    Heres some pics of my current shoes (left shoe)



    Cheers

    If you're OK with paying more for high end shoes, I say go for it. If you're fine with the performance your current pair gave you and don't really think high end shoes would offer you much more, why change what works? Finally, if you're on a limited budget, try a less reputable brand. I'm pretty sure that Carlton shoes aren't that bad - some of the county players from round my way use them.

    actually, that looks like normal wear and tear.
    I can kinda see the stretched out toe though.
    If you like it, but it again. I think that the 91's are good too.
