    was it really worthy lin dan shoe.when will be the gold version be realeased .
    i found yonex shoes easy to wear off, and there gumsole harden after a certain time, make it slippery on the court loss it ability to stick and stabilized on the court, in short u can not use it any more .
    those all the gum shoe shoes dont only yonex badminton has this life span??
    how about the power cushion of yonex, compare to victor energy max??,and lining bounce technology?? wht is more responsive or effective ??

    in my on opinion
    technology wise yonex is the 1st , 2nd victor and 3rd lining
    design wise victor 1st , 2nd yonex and 3rd lining
    sturdy wise lining 1st , 2nd victor and 3rd yonex
    what do you guys think ??

    You have to use badminton shoes only in the badminton court. Do not wear it outdoors or play on cement surfaces. Clean the rubber sole with a damp cloth after use on a dusty court. Taking proper care, these shoes will easily last for more than a year. By that time the rubber sole will harden naturally and it will be time to get a new one.

    A contact who is a distributor of Yonex products. I ask him the same thing with the other yonex clothing/apparels I bought from him, he never tells.

    Bought a week ago. Feels very well fitted but seems easy to wear and tear from the sides due to lateral movements after 5-6 sessions. Started to have gaps in the rubber.

    Wow, early Xmas:) That is one attractive pair. Have you tried them? Is the blue portion rigid since it seems to be made of hardened material. Was looking to order the purple and green version till this caught my eye.

    Me being narrow footed, it feels stable. I think if you have flat feet it might feel too much like too rigid. Hopefully they release more because the blue/lime combination really looks nice, the guy who sold me had only 8 pairs to sell and I guess I was lucky he asked me because he knows I'm lcw fan. I've used it twice on the court now and liking it.

    Got these recently recommended to try from my friend who is a Babolat stockist. Have to say feel like they are just as comfortable as my old Yonex SHB 02 LTDs and quite a bit lighter as well so feel like i can move around the court faster. Although the SHD 02 LTD feel like they have better ankle support.

    i have also ordered a few pairs for my other team mates in Black and Yellow. Not everyone can pull off this blue and pink version i much say!
    And the blue isn't as blue as it seems in some promotional phones and the pink is MUCH more pink in real life too. But yeh i would say... only a REAL man can pull these off...

    I'm a Babolat Ambassador and I have been using the above shoe for nearly 9 months now. It is a very comfortable shoe and I have only just changed the insole as mine has worn away. The grip and responsiveness is top knotch and so far apart from the wear on the inner section of the non racket leg from foot drag, the shoe has held up nicely. No tears or splits. It looks awesome and is certainly an improvement on the previous model.

    Kindest regards,

    oh nice Ajay.

    how did you become an ambassador?

    yeah i used custom insoles to help me correct an uneven wear issue i used to have will insoles of all brands. but yes so far the shoes have performed very nicely. :)

    I'm a coach so previously was with Yonex. Just the past 2 years I have been with Babolat as they were coming up some interesting products in the badminton scene and I am always open to try different products

    Their shoes/rackets/bags and clothing are definitely good quality and improving all the time. Its just a shame their feather shuttlecocks are poor and made with 3 layer cork even on top range.

    BTW Babolat have just realised the 2017 shoe, its a different colourway which I will post a picture shortly.

    The top orange black shoe. It looks okay in real life but not as nice as the blue pink combo I have. I'm not a fan of 3 colours, I like the 2 colour scheme.

    Kindest regards,

    ah nice have you tried babolat rackets also? I'm now using victor rackets as they are a much more competitive price in hong kong so i always buy some when i go back there.

    the shuttles seem ok to me. at least at the beginning. Although it does seem like they slow very quickly... and sometimes a the beginning particularly the mid court push and drive shots seem to be hard to control as they seem to fly very quickly and are quite often hard to control the pace. However they seem fine for rear court shots until they get a little duffed up and slow.

    Yes I have, do a search you will see many reviews of mine of the Babolat range of rackets. I currently have the full 2016 XFeel II range, my favourite being the XFeel Power II. A great all round racket.

    Kindest regards,
