    I previously used the 86ltd and find the adidas more stable an supportive. Definitely go for adidas.

    Hi guys, anymore updates or reviews on the BT feathers? Especially in comparison with the Asics Gel Blade 3. I've had Yonex SHB 85 before, which were ok, but the cushioning was gone quite fast and they were a bit wide for my feet (I have quite small feet).
    I have the silver/red Gel Blade 3 for a year now and I am very pleased with these shoes. The fit is great, they are excellent for small feet, the cushioning is very good and it last quite long too. It's light weight. Only the grip is less than Yonex shoes IMO.

    However, I'm very interested in the BT Feathers. How do they compare to Gel Blade 3, anyone? Are they good for small feet? And how is the cushioning, especially the fore foot area? Besides, anyone could give advise on the size? My Asics are size 44,5 EURO or 10,5 US.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have tried quite a number of brands before like Yonex, Kumpoo, Li Ning, Victor and Adidas. I won't say one brand is the best as each of them has their own strength.

    I have 4 shoes and I rotate amongst them and I find myself going to the BT feather every time instead of doing the rotation.

    What I love about the BT feather is that it is light and yet provide sufficient cushioning for me (I am a light weight myself). Fit wise is good but it does not provide the snug and padded feel like Asics.

    I also love that it has very high abrasion and tear resistant upper material.

    couple of our local retailers got hold of BT feather so i went and checked them out.
    the shoes look nice, seem very well-made and supposedly quite durable.
    feel nice, averagely tight. but they are very low cut. i can't really tell if it's good or bad, my shb-01 are rather low cut too but these are even lower.

    Yeah, I struggled with the low cut. Very nice shoes altogether, and looks a little improved compared to the old BT Feather, but the very low cut was not sth I liked. Pretty impressive cushioning though.

    I have been trying out BT feather recently.

    I have to say it is very comfortable for my wide feet. The fit is nice and snug. The sole doesn't feel so narrow that I feel unstable when I plant my foot on the floor.

    There is a catch. I do feel a bit flat footed on court (even with my special insoles). It feels like I get less spring or rebound compared to the Yonex shoes used before. I can only think the Yonex shoes have a stiffer sole. When you land on it and deform it a bit, it springs back into shape giving a slight rebound effect. (I.e. kinetic energy to potential energy back to kinetic energy).

    Anybody else get a similar feeling of being a bit flat footed with the BT Feather?

    Anyone seen these Adidas shoes?
    Called Adidas Feather Fly. I don't think they're made specifically for badminton but they certainly look sharp!

    Hi Cheung, mind me asking how wide is your feet and what size are you wearing?

    I have a wide feet of 11cm wide and 16cm length. I wonder whether I should get UK9 (27.5cm) or UK9.5 (28cm) instead.

    Mine are 11cm widest point at the forefoot and 26 cm toe to heel. I am using BT feather of size UK 8. I have also taken out the insoles replacing them with orthotics. I also wear some sleeves ankle supports as well!

    Since I don't like my foot slipping forward an backwards in the shoe, there is only a small amount of room from the front of the toe onwards. The lace up area on the top of the shoe is important - there is a fair amount of space between either sides of the hole which doesn't bother me at all. However, that's a bit of an individual preference. UK 9.5 sounds pretty big of you are going for that. What's you usual size of shoe?

    Ah we have the exact foot size! Personally I don't like my shoes to be too tight, so I usually wear UK8 for thin padded shoes (eg. converse all star) and UK9-UK9.5 for thick padded and tight fitting running shoes.


    I remember seeing in forum that Kwun's foot size is 260mm length & 95mm width, and he is wearing UK8.5. So hmmm sounds like I should get UK9 instead.


    One more question, does your BT Feather gotten much looser after break in?

    Not much looser after breaking in. It's not as bulky as a running shoe.
