    Which part of foot your feel pain?
    If its on the heel, you could buy heel insole gel to give more cushion.

    What are your current shoes? Hopefully its still badminton shoes & not a running shoes.

    How old are your shoes?
    Does your insole flattened already? If your outer shoes still good, buy new insole & replace it.

    Try those. The power cushion 35 and 65 shoes I have used in the past have both been supportive under the foot and quite rigid in overall shoe shape.

    I've since moved onto aerus3 shoes and they are more flexible (not for you).

    So i decided that what it cost in india for a badminton shoe i can shop on amazonJP and get a way better shoe so i have decided on mizuno claw special edition or something of mizuno
    maybe fung zero , ss2 or some other model the fung pro out of my league.

    Few issues i have currently

    i jump rope , jog around the court and having shin splits , foot pain and sometimes knee issues .
    Also my pink toe gets shredded on my current VERY cheap shoes ,

    Can someone show me a chart and to how measure How wide my foot is to see if i need a E shoe .

    For the price im about to pay for a mizuno on amazonJP plus shipping i can get a power cushion comfort z2 or something of that sort , what do you suggest ?

    I would be satisfied with the asics court control FF but cNt find it so shoppjn amazonJP

    Sorry im VRRY new to this stuff. And only had one pair of shoe so far. Which is super cheap .

    Im going to buy a mizuno shoe from amazonJP because i cant find a shoe i want here in india as all sizes on sites are sold out and i dont want yonex but am very new to this all stuff and a bit confused .

    Im a UK 7 and it fits find but my pinky tow gets cut up from me doing sharo cutta around the court but could be cause im wearing VERY cheap 1200 rupee shoes.

    on amazonJP all the sizes have 2E - 4E
    And ive checked alot of charts and found all of them arw givinf me a different size shos from UK to JP. Ive seen few give me 25.5 and a few give me 26! These shoes are expensive and being shipped to india so need a 110% answer what size

    also please explain 2e-4E and measure my widest foot part and it seems like 4” if it turns out a but wider Can i mKe up for it with double socks ?
    If i buy a 3e or 2e and i have a normal width foot do i nees to downsize to make up for the width ?

    I have foot pain, shine pain from badminton and jump rope , should i be even looking at mizuno? Or should i get the conventual yonex 65_ power cushion and just fit in with the crowd ?
    Yonex 65_ around 9.5-10k rupees
    AmazonJP has wave fang pro for 11k rupees
    Wave claw 2 for 9.5-10k and other mizuno models from 8k-9k like ss2 , fang zero

    Please help ! Big money dont want to make a mistake .

    I wouldn't place all my money on the shoes i haven't tried and will have problems returning.
    If you have time, will, resources and patience to participate in such a lottery then why not.
    If you have a chance to go to physical store and try different models to see which feels the best i would recommend that. Better be a sheep with same 65z that fits you than a rebel with one of a kind "mizuno kizuno blah blah" that hurts your feet.

    Hey guys thanks for all the replies and suggestions yall been so helpful im so grateful to have such a community to be apart of.

    so i narrowed it down to two , maybe three

    court control FF2 rs9999 (women soze but tired it on and it fit perfectly)

    power comfort cushion z2 Rs8200

    amazon.jp mizuno wave claw 2E Rs10300 ( but would be risk cause
    Not sure if 2E even fits me)

    mostly get the first two option
    So is goin for CC FF2 and spending the 2.8k more rupees worth it or is z2 fine doe 8.2k

    major difference??

    Always go .5 to 1 size bigger on Yonex shoes. They tend to be small fitting.

    Haven't tried any Asics court shoes ever.

    My foot size is about a UK7, and I always buy UK8 Yonex shoes

    Try google for 'mizuno india'.. There are couple of websites... Not sure whether they are legit... Trying sending a tweet or pm on Instagram to HS Prannoy and ask when where to buy mizuno in india.. That's because he is currently endorsing Mizuno.
