Hi, I am a keen badminton player that play twice a week. 5 years ago I started buying Yonex badminton shoes, SHB99. I love them, very light and comfortable. Today I just bought another pair, SBH101LTD, totally diappointed. Not to mention that it is heavier but they actually cause me a great deal of pains. I play about 6 games today and towards the last 2 games, the pain was so much that I felt like taking them off. But I can't because I was in the middle of the games. Okay, for what I know, one can buy from Yonex Sunrise, which is a local agent for Yonex or buy from those who sell Yonex shoes that are directly imported from Japan. My question is : are those from Japan have better quality compared to those from yonex Sunrise. [ My other question is, for the high end shoes, why Yonex produced worse instead of better shoes over the time. ] Any Yonex shoes expert out there that can enlighten me regarding this puzzled issue. Many thanks.
