I think you need to save them to a website and then link them in that way? You can't upload the file direct from your PC so use a picture sharing website (I think this is what you do, I don't have a clue on this sort of thing).

 

Hope that helps

Europe will be getting the red 9100's however Direct Sports have ordered the yellow and black version.

So far I've found these shoes to be really comfortable, superb snug fit around the heel and excellent grip with plenty of room around the toes. Being so conservative I really didn't expect to like these shoes and quickly take them off and revert to my white 8600's. However, I've not felt self-conscious at all – thankfully and am really enjoying wearing them.

Glad to hear your enjoying your shoes Paul . Sadly because of a toe problem ive still been unable to try mine but they look great. How have you found the insoles on yours?? Ive only tried the left shoe but the ridge effect on the insole is quite strange at first but seems to be quite “grippy”. Cant wait to actually play in them…..

The innersoles are great. Yes, there's loads of grip. Some players may find them hard on the feet. I know one player who likes certain innersoles and therefore always removes manufacturer supplied. He's currently testing sorbothane but I don't know which type.

Well i finally managed to try on my new shoes this morning and whilst my left foot fitted ok my right was just too tight….damn you wide feet!!!

I thought for a little while and decided to swap the insoles from my yonex as they also have sorbothane heels….and hey presto…they fit like a glove!!! I was amazed after taking the insoles out of the victor how much space they took up in the shoe and how rigid they were!. I def couldnt have worn them as they were but now with diff insoles i cant wait to get out on the court!!

Hi Paul, I had been using a Nike Air Monarch IV which is a crosstrainer for badminton.  However, I now want to use a different Nike shoe that is lighter and more breathable.  The problem is that they do not make a badminton shoe.  Please advise.  Should I look at a Tennis shoe?  ie:  Nike Air Max Cage TS

Best Regards,

Kevin
