I have owned Yonex shoes for badminton before but my last pair were Adidas BT Feather. My Adidas aren't that old (approx 9 months) but I noticed that I was getting a pain on my right foot on the outer side of the sole. So I've gone back to Yonex and I find these SHB 02MX really supportive. No more pains after badminton and they are really grippy. I would recommend these and would buy these again.
