    I think I'll let the pictures do the talking. The top eyelets are badly deformed. v2 (2).jpg v1 (2).jpg

    I really cant imagine how tight you tie ur shoes while P9200 itself already stuffy inside.
    Mine CC version still doing fine & i tied my shoes tight, not loosen up ties.

    I don’t use the very top eyelets. I find that they come up too high and restrict my ankle extension a lot. There’s a lot of pressure on the ankle and it pulls on the eyelets.

    I'm on my 4th pair of P9200 and P9200II right now and never had any issues with that top eyelet. So imo that is a clear warranty case - just report it back to the shop where you bought it from and claim warranty.

    I've been using p9210s for years. Never had a quality issue like this. Manufacturer defect or something.

    I had the same issues like OP with my two pairs of P9200 and didn't cared. They lasted both one year until the cushion wore out. The P9300 didn't had the issue, P9310 didn't had, the P9500 has it. They are sporting shoes, they have some wear. as long as the hole don't break I don't see any reason to worry. They are not like sneakers to just walk around, they have to withstands fast movements and stops.

    Hello,

    It might be a quality issue or you might be tying them wrong.
    There are different ways to tie the shoelaces as per the shape/size of the feet.
    Try experimenting with a few.

    No, stupid question. :)

    Normally I will notice that the shoe feels flatter at the heel on the ground than initial. You can also see this when you place a brand new shoe of the same model beside it. It's a few mm difference. You can also spot some deep wrinkles in the sides of the sole. If you feel sometimes a bit pain at the heel or in the joints like ankles or knee which you normally don't have it is a sign, that the cushion could be worn out. If you try to compress the heel by hand it feels just hard and not bouncy the cushion is for me gone.

    This is the worse quality of shoes that I ever bought for $160. I swear that they are made in some second tier shoe factory in China. Do not waste your money on this.

    I bought it off joybadminton, the chances of being fake is very low. Keep in mind I only wore this shoes for like 6-7 times.

    Then go and claim warranty. Immediately. Cause that is just unacceptable.

    I’ve been using the black/blue ones for about a year now and they are still standing strong. Pun intended.

    I contacted Victor on their official website three times already about this. All ignored. Any other ways go about this?

    Normally, you always go to the shop you bought the product from in the first place.

    With many products, not just badminton products, the first thing to do is go through the store you bought it from. Is that usually the case in the country where you bought the shoe from?

    In my country we usually take it up with the manufacturer, I done it many times with Nike, Adidas, Under Armor.

    But here is the store/Victor's policy on Victor product,

    "Please be advised that product warranty is solely up to the manufacturer's discretion(which MAY be denied), and it is up to the manufacturer to honor the claim."

    "All Victor shoes come with a 30 day defective product warranty."

    Lol what a joke. Never again.

    It looks like you need to go through the store who then take it up with the distributor (a separate company) and then the manufacturer.
