If you can use the shoes with the insoles which come with it without disconfort then you should be ok, otherwise I would suggest using orthotic insoles.

Adding on to Matt's post...
What's your weight, as I'm a flat foot myself and I feel Yonex's shoes' cushion is not enough (I'm pretty heavy).
I prefer Mizuno's shoes because they have more cushion. Now I'm using Wave Blocker Lighting 6, before I was using Adidas Stabil 7 (I think that's what it's called).

I'm about 117 lbs. Yeah, I was going to consider getting Mizuno badminton shoes since they offer better foot support.
I have to select my shoes carefully since I have narrow feet.

If you do consider buying Yonex shoes, you might have to do DinkALot's method of replacing the insole of your shoes to increase cushion and comfort.
