Description

Victor ™ AS36 Wide

Our Description

This court shoe is in our Adult Recreation category. Shoes in this category are suitable for continuous recreational adult use over prolonged periods of time.


Sport Suitability

This shoe was created specifically for badminton, but that does not mean it can be used only for badminton. In fact, this shoe is suitable for a wide variety of sports, including:

  • pickleball
  • squash
  • racquetball
  • table tennis
  • tennis
  • fencing
  • handball
  • dodgeball
  • floor hockey
  • floorball
  • crossminton
  • crosstraining
  • netball
  • stage combat

Keep in mind that the sole of this shoe works best on surfaces such as hardwood, mats, vinyl, and carpet. It is not ideal for use on hard acrylic tennis courts, concrete, asphalt, or clay, but it can be used on all of them.



Width of the Forefoot

Each shoe manufacturer describes the width of their shoes in different ways. This shoe is a men’s extra wide or a ladies’ double extra wide. Some brands call this a 4E, some call it a 3.0, some call it both, some call it neither.



Shape of the Toe Box

Our experts have labeled this shoe as a T3W-taper. This means that, provided it is the correct length and width, it work wells for athletes with T1-taper (Egyptian), T2-taper (Roman), T3W-taper (Wide Roman) and Morton’s Toe. This shape also generally works well for most older athletes and/or most athletes with bunions.

Provided it is the correct length and width, this shoe works well with a T3W-taper toe line.

As always, we strongly recommend trying shoes on before buying them. There is a lot more to a proper fit than just the length/width. The shape of your toe line plays a major role in overall comfort and performance. If your toe line conflicts with the taper of the toe box, it can result in injuries.

If your feet are wide, book an appointment for a professional shoe fitting.

If your feet are standard width, order online and choose SHIP TO STORE. You will be able to try them on in the pro shop before committing to them.



Warning Signs

The most common warning signs that your shoes do not fit correctly:

  • chaffing, calluses, corns, blisters, bunions, hammertoes
  • pain in joints or knuckles of toes
  • blackened or bruised toenails
  • busting or tearing through sides of shoes
  • busting or tearing through tops of toe boxes

Contrary what what other players may tell you, shoes that are causing injuries to your feet are not the right size. If you are getting injuries of any kind from your shoes, they are the wrong size, the wrong width, the wrong shape, or all of the above.

Shoes that fit properly allow your feet to move athletically inside of the shoe. This includes toe spreading as well as up-down toe movements that are essential for balance and recovery. Shoes that are too tight restrict your feet from making the adjustments necessary for balance.

If standard-width shoes are causing injuries, you may be too wide for them. Book an appointment for a professional shoe fitting with a coach who is ethically bound to give you good advice.



Try this Shoe on


Our bricks-and-mortar pro shop and our website are completely separate business units. However we do work together on some things, such as shoes.

The pro shop does not stock standard-width shoes. They do not stock ladies shoes in standard widths. They do not stock junior shoes in standard widths.

The pro shop stocks unisex shoes in wide to double-extra-wide widths. This is because the pro shop specializes in fitting athletes with hard-to-fit feet.

If your feet are to wide for standard-width shoes, you may request an appointment for a professional shoe fitting.

If your feet are standard width, you may order online and choose SHIP TO STORE. You will be notified when your shoes arrive in the pro shop. You will then be able to try them on in the pro shop before committing to them.
