    Hi all looking for some reccomendations, currently wearing aerus 3's but find them lacking in comfort.
    Ive ankles that have been rolled too many times to count and an aching old knee so looking for something with good cushioning/comfort and support?

    Try the Victor SH-S80SD, they're a little taller by the ankle offering more support than the YY Aerus 3

    Both shoes you guys mentioned are in the 'speed' category which has the least cushion/support. Yonex and Victor shoes are now separated in 3 categories:

    - Speed: lightest, fastest, least cushion/support. Yonex Aerus and Victor S.
    - All-around: medium support. Yonex 65, Eclipsion and Victor A.
    - Comfort: bunky, heavy, lots of cushion/support. Yonex Comfort Z and Victor P.

    So you can try to go one up to all-around to all the way to comfort.

    I actually just posted the picture in the "Show us your badminton shoes" thread.

    Anyways I used to use the Aerus 3 and migrated over to the 65z2 shoes. Like you, I also found them lacking in comfort. They are definitely great for speed, but with my badminton level, I'm not winning any tournaments. There's no reason to try and eek out a little extra speed to risk injury, so I went over to the 65Z2. It's probably the best piece of badminton equipment that I own and provides the most utility. And they look GREAT too.

    I have a meniscus tear in my knee. Using Yonex Comfort Z2 didn't help, but when I change the insole to Dr. Kong, it realy helps a lot. Usually after play badminton, the next day my knee would hurt , but after I change the insole, my knee didn't hurt anymore.
    So my suggestion to you, get the best comfort/support shoes and change the insole to a 3rd party brand that offer best shock absorption.
    It surely gonna make your shoe a lot heavier, but you can keep playing the sport that you like :)

    Yep, I had an injury, so started using superfeet oranges, as well as thorlos socks.

    Unfortunately, we only find the good supportive gear when we get injured, and in many cases, people still don't find professional help / address the issues causing the injury.

    Not just for recovery, I'll keep using them when I'm healed too, such excellent protection - you simply cannot rely on having good support from court shoes, even if its the high end shoe in the 'supportive' lines.

    Yup. Totaly agree with you. The injury I have is an accumulation of years playing badminton, not a trauma or accidental. If I can turn back time, I would use good supportive shoes as early as possible.

    ASICS Court Control FF2 or the Gel-Blast for comfort for sure. The Gel cushioning on these shoes are something especially if you need the support like their running shoes
