    The ones at the top are the one that I am currently using. Just started to use the SHB 101 Limited and have not tested the SHB 200 but have to stop playing for a while due to ankle injury. Need to recover first.:D The ones at the bottom I considered "Retired" and used them as my walking shoes.

    I still couldn't bear to replace my shb100ltd. After 18months of use, its now plastered up. Still going though. The shb100ltds were just great.:D

    You guys just gotta check out his shoes.:D:p

    I have just switched from the SHB-101LTD to using the SHB-200 and SHB-80W (THE Japan model). I'm giving my SHB-101LTD to my brother.

    That is a good looking shoe..Post a review after you settle into them..Perhaps try them out the way they r and then with an insole or custom orthotic or whatever u use.

    I was looking at Hi-tec shoes before I got my Karakals as well..

    Here is a little write up on what i feel about the hitec 4sys after 3sessions of play. Comparing to the shb100ltd.

    Shb100ltd
    Comfort: 9/10
    Grip: 9/10
    Support: 8/10

    Hitec 4sys
    Comfort: 7/10
    Grip: 9/10
    Support: 9/10

    The Hitec 4sys was surprisingly good. I always believed in buying yonex badminton shoes, as the top end models are often very good, and there isnt a risk of getting dissapointment. I bought the hitec shoes because they were cheaper, and since, i am going for national service soon, i wouldnt want to spend too much on a shoe.

    Comparing to the Yonex Shb100ltd, I rated comfort as 7/10 as i feel, the hitec 4sys badminton shoe is much stiffer at the base. Left, right movements arent as fluid as the shb100ltd. The material on the hitec 4sys doesnt seem as breath-able as the shb100ltd, feet feels "tired" after a 3hours session, but i dont feel that with the shb100ltd. The hitec 4sys are also heavier.

    On the contary, the hitec 4sys's grip is good, despite the significantly less-er treads compared to the shb100ltd. As for support, i feel, the hitec 4sys holds my feet in place better than the shb100ltd.

    Shoe is great for its price, but, again, if i arent going for ns soon, i would have gotten another pair of shb100ltd, or the shb101ltd. They are much comfortable and fluid, might be the yonex round sole.

    I am not dissapointed with my buy though, and i hope, this pair will last me another year plus.:)

    Just my 2cents...

    I got SHB 98MX and SHB 91MX. My dad let me use his 98 until I bought my own 91. Both are still in pretty good condition.

    I have always been an avid user of mizuno shoes. And because Volleyball is my first love, i also started using volleyball shoes for badminton.

    My 1st one was - Mizuno Wave Lightning, first edition
    2nd - Mizuno Wave Tornado 3

    I also bought several yonex along side but I would still end up over using my beloved mizunos :)


    Im planning to buy my 3rd mizuno very very soon =)
