I thjought it was time to upgrade from the X-trail, x-treme, something with X in it, blue and green ones, due to lack of padding and my foot rotating in the shoe or something. Anyway, hoping for more grip/stability, whatever lets me moves faster. These were cheap/mid range just to test the fit of Li-ning as I have non-Yonex foot shape. Box arrives a day early, great. Open it. LOADS of padding, especially at the top of the heel where i really appreciate it, looks like a rolled up pair of socks curled round. Eagerly try it one and OUCH, toes right into the end. Holy heck that is tight. Check the size: 260. I take a 270. Excuse the shouting and rant but:- WHY IN ALL THAT IS HOLY DOES AN EU SITE SHIPPING TO THE UK, DEFAULT TO US SHOE SIZES?? Not happy. Awaiting to hear whether they decide if this is my error or theirs (its both really), before I potentially put these up for sale for retail - return postage cost.
