    i've always found yonex shoes fit best for my foot, but because i'm heavy, the damping properties of cushion is gone really soon, causin achilles pain and calf problems..
    so, which shoe would give best damping properties and maybe last a litlle longer than 3 months? Is new Yonex ECLIPSION any good? Or Aerus3? Is Aerus3 availeble with wide fit like Eclipsion does? Or maybe some other brand?

    Some heavy players have been known to wear basketball shoes for cushioning that lasts longer.

    Once my achilles was so bad, i actually tried basketball shoes but it took so much speed and movement away from my game that it was impossible to use them. So high quality badminton shoes only.

    JP code only. Means only in Japan. You'd have to order from Shuttle House. com

    Has anybody tried the wide version of the Yonex Power Cushion Comfort Z? If so, do you wear it same size as your regular shoes to go up?
