so far I've never purchased/used any shoes that are specifically for badminton. I've been using some pretty good all-around court shoes made by Nike... that only cost me $40 (USD) per pair. I bought 3 pairs and am on my last pair now after over 5 years.. (may have interchanged with some lower quality Wilsons during the time)

The pair of Nike's lasted me pretty long.
-Good traction on court (wood or rubber)
-Relatively light, although not as light as the Yonex shoes I've seen

I'm wondering if there are a few pairs you guys can recommend me... preferrably being at a good price for the durability and comfort.

any other questions for me just let me know. Thanks!
