    I wanted to buy new badminton shoes. I am little heavy and have already gone through a (ACL) knee surgery. Can anyone recommend me which shoe to get between Aerus 2 and SHB03Z Men.
    Which is better for my knees?

    Neither.

    Comfort Tour/Comfort Z. Better all round padding.

    I had a go with Comfort Z today and it felt really hard on the heels, there was no give compared to shb03z. That is why I did not take that into selection. I could not try Aerus 2 as the shop did not have all the sizes.

    did you try wearing knee supports and calf compression sleeves? it helps somewhat.
    i went ahead with mizuno wave twister, it was a lot less taxing on my knees than my asics gel rocket 7

    Considered custom insoles?

    I did not know about new power cushion. I will go back and try them again.

    Custom insoles:
    I have not seen them in stores here, considering that I am in India might have to import them.

    From what I tried, aerus is quite thin on the sole. It focuses on being lighter and I felt like it didn't have much cushioning, i dont think I'd recommend it for you. I'm not sure about the other.

    Not both of them, i've been playing with shb03z for some time, and after trying SHb65Z, it help a lot, because they have power cushion+ , which is more soft and bouncier for me, and new comfort Z have it to, if you fee the shoes are to tight, you can try shb65X, hope it help

    I got the shb03z and they are a world apart from my previous shoes. Amazing shoes, very comfortable. shb65z was not available and comfort z despite its name did not feel comfortable at all the fit for my legs.

    SHB03z : Awesome!
