Custom Monogram (+CAD $5.00)

We will laser engrave up to three letters (usually initials) into both of your shoes to make them identifiable in the event they are lost or stolen. The letters will be 3-5mm tall and will be placed on an outer facing. In most cases they will not be noticed by anybody who doesn’t know they are there.

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 standard or a ladies’ wide. Some brands call this a D, some call it a 2.0, some call it both, some call it neither.



Shape of the Toe Box

This shoe follows the general shape of what we call a T2-taper — sometimes called an Roman foot shape. This foot shape features two long toes of approximately equal length followed by three toes that shorten in succession.

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.

Book an appointment for a professional shoe fitting to find out what fits and what doesn’t.



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 box

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 any kinds of injuries 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 you doubt this, think of your hands. How much dexterity would your fingers have if they were all bound together inside of a skin-tight mitten? Now extend that thinking to your feet. Stand on one bare foot on the floor and try to balance without moving your toes. It simply can’t be done.

FREE YOUR TOES. Improve your balance and your performance will improve along with it. Book an appointment for a professional shoe fitting with a coach who is ethically bound to give you good advice. Get shoes that will actually contribute to improving your performance.

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.

If you see a shoe on our website and want to know if it will fit your foot, you may order it and choose SHIP TO STORE. It will be shipped to the pro shop in the size and color requested. You will be notified when it gets there so that you can go into the pro shop and try it on.

If the shoe does not fit, or if you decide not to take it for any reason, the pro shop will let us know and we will process a refund.

Manufacturer’s Description

New POWER CUSHION+ construction enables a new level of fast and light footwork

Shoe Technology


Power Cushion

Illustration of Yonex Power Cushion Shoe Technology

The YONEX Power Cushion absorbs shock then reverses the impact energy for smooth transfer into the next movement. Compared with urethane, the YONEX Power Cushion construction provides 3 times more shock absorbing power. When dropped from 7m above a Power Cushion sheet, an egg will bounce back 4m without damage.



Yonex Power Cushion Plus

A raw egg can be dropped from 12 meters above the POWER CUSHION+ mat, rebounding to a height of 6 meters without breaking. **Tested by YONEX** POWER CUSHION™ is a trademark of Yonex Co., Ltd. *Research by the Japan Vehicle Inspection Association & Boken Quality Evaluation (based on JIS standards) in comparison to conventional cushioning material (EVA).



ToughBrid Light

YONEX TOUGHBRID LIGHT SHOE TECHNOLOGY

ToughBrid Light retains the exact performance as ToughBrid yet is 11%* lighter, generating a significant reduction in leg and knee stress.

*Tested by YONEX



3D Power Graphite Sheet

A graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the sole to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.

The redesigned 3D Power Graphite Sheet positioned at the mid to outer part of the sole improves torsional rigidity where it is needed most.

Power Graphite Lite

A super-light graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the foot to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.



Lateral Shell

Reduced power loss. The Lateral Shell located on the outside of the forefoot prevents sliding at the edge of the sole. It reduces power loss, increases footwork response and creates smooth, fluid and offensive foot movements.



Synchro Fit Insole

YONEX ™ Synchro-Fit Insole construction creates a secure contact between foot and shoe, reducing energy wastage through an improved fit.

Fig 1. Compared with conventional badminton shoes, the mid to heel section on the insole is elevated to provide an improved fit between foot and shoe.

Fig 2. By holding the heel firmly against the insole, the gap between foot and shoe is reduced, improving comfort and performance, ensuring the foot has maximum grip inside the shoe.



Toe Assist Shape

YONEX TOE ASSIST TECHNOLOGY
