    Lining launched many models for years and, yet, Chen Long decided? to wear just one model all these years.

    Why?

    Because the model was prototype? this cant be true

    Because Lining does not want to develop new line for Chen Long? this can't be right~

    Because Chen Long does not like new models? maybe~

    However, if he decided to wear specific model for such a long time, then Lining should sell the Chen Long favorite badminton shoes.

    But, I cant even find the model name.

    What do you think? :)

    It's possible the shape and design is unchanged but the matierial has been? For instance the cushioning and sole matieral may be updated. Maybe this shoe design is perfect for him and that's why he won't change.

    This is totally possible in the point of players view. Lining is sponsoring national team to profit by selling products. If Chen Long loves this model, they should sell it, not just make for him :) because I also want to buy this shoes~ :)

    Very good shoes with reasonable price. :)

    I guess you tried 65Z but still likes 65X more? :)

    It's very strange that the heel cushioning of 65Z, claimed to have the new Power Cushion+, is stiffer than 65X (2011, JP version).
    Moreover, 65X 2011 get softer upper synthetic leather in the forefoot area.

    If it ain't broke don't fix it. It works for him, so why change shoes.

    Debby Susanto used Nanospeed 9900 for a long time.

    The point here is : no single model will be produced after an "update" from it has been launched for a while, let alone for 8 years. So even a sponsored like Lin Dan cannot get a brand new AT-700 or MP-99 from the sponsor even he loves them so much over the new models.
    So if wuldup's observation is correct, then there are a few possibilities. One is that the sponsor keeps making this particular model for Chen Long alone.
    Another possibility is that Chen Long found the true love for his feet and stock up this particular model on his own eight years ago !
