    They were on a roll with this shoe design. Until this preserved plum.

    E?! E is yellow in Victor-ese!

    But yes, these are dreadful - they look like a pimp's dressing gown/car seat covers.

    Recently I've gotten a pair of Yonex SC3EX for cheap and it fits my wide feet well with excellent cushioning.

    If I were to buy a pair of SH-S80 this would be my color of choice.

    I'm thinking of getting a pair. But have 0 justifiable reasons to get one.

    Mine arrived yesterday, just as I was leaving for a session. How's that for timing:).

    Grip wasn't great out of the box - hadn't done my acetone trick yet - but ye gods, they're light. I weighed them when I got home: 270 g empty, vs 330 g for the old 9100's. Huge reduction, at no cost to the cushioning or stability.

    Not especially. I didn't feel any pinching at the outside, and this is before they've been run in. I pretty much forgot about them an hour in, to be honest.

    Sounds like an excellent shoe. I'll probably give it a go when either my LYD or 8500 dies. Which knowing me wilk probably end up being either never or at least 2 years.

    Second session, and mine are pretty much there - never had a shoe fit me this quick. Could be the V-shape, I don't know.

    Excellent shoe - light enough to make normal ones feel like car batteries, but still cushiony and supportive. Just wish I had the yellow ones:mad:.

    Haha, I have one question, does your feet hurt after you play and would you say it is durable?
