    Hi,

    I'm looking for Yonex shoes that have good support for my ankles and good shock absorption for my knees. I've come to choose between these two.

    Yonex Comfort-Z
    Yonex Power Cushion 65 Z2

    Seems like comfort z is marketing the shock absorption more and Power Cushion for all around. Does the 65z2 have good shock absorption too?

    Same here but I got myself torn between victor p9210 and A960. Currently using yonex power cushion 55, I twisted my ankle 2 times in quick succession so I want to try the support series of victor which has better stability on ankles

    But I can guarantee that while playing yonex shb55 I never had a knee pain whatsoever. After I remove the shoe and climb a stair I feel knee is stressed. Well I am 39 years old so might it!!!

    65z2 has power cushion + so it will be even more comfortable but not adequate for ankle support as victor support series is my opinion

    The Yonex comfort-Z (1 or 2) series are supposed to be the most comfortable pair of the Yonex shoes collection. You could go for this model if comfort is your priority.

    I have a65 since 9 months and they do provide good shock absorption capabilities but I can't compare with the Comfort series as I never owned any.
