Will Asics ever release an exclusive badminton line of shoes? like say Mizuno, Yonex etc?.. and no i don't consider the gel blade a "true" badminton exclusive. I'm talking about shoes specifically designed for badminton and not "all-purpose" court shoes that you can use for badminton. Many professional players use Asics volleyball or handball designed shoes to play and quite recently Joachim Fischer Nielsen suffered a broken ankle at the world championships. I believe he was using an Asics volleyball or handball specific shoe. The only place to see anything remotely Asics badminton is on Gosen's website which in my opinion is a failed attempt at anything badminton from them. So this brings me back to my question. Why won't Asics invest in this sport which they garner heavy support? it baffles me. I would love to see Asics use some of their volleyball shoe designs on something exclusively engineered for badminton. So if anyone has any insight or info please share your thoughts!
