    I had a few questions regarding shoes for the BC community. I have only ever used Yonex badminton shoes from the very beginning. I currently us Aerus 2 shoes and love them.

    I am wanting to switch to victor shoes next if it makes sense. I am a heavier guy (6'-3" 245lbs). Mostly muscle mass, not just overweight. But nontheless im a big guy. I know Yonex has their patent cushioning you can drop an egg on or whatever. So my questions:

    1. How they are comparable quality wise? Do victors hold up as well with wear/tear as Yonex?

    2. How are the cushion/padding/support in victor shoes compared to yonex?

    3. do victor fit more narrow then yonex?

    Victor n Li-Ning shoes have wider range of quality; on the hi-end models they r equivalent but on mid and lower end models they vary very widely. It's better to be specific in asking which Yonex shoes r more durable than which Victor shoes. Question no3 i can't answer you without specific models comparison. In fact I don't wear Victor/Yonex at all now, my Indonesian local brands r only US $35-40 for their hi-end models. They r just as comfortable n last over 2 years, after replacing w/ better insoles. Only 30% in prices but performance is 80% of Yonex/Victor, w/ a good insole it's 85-90%.
