thanks a ton ED, just about to get 59. Your message was just in time.

 

at the moment my size (40) is a bit difficult to find; I will wait for a while and if then perhaps get 86 instead if I could not find 85 at size 40.

 

Best,

Tony

Sometimes you need to get bang up-to-date I'm afraid as stocks of old models are hard to find, especially in popular sizes.

 

That doesn't necessarily mean the new models are better than the old – they are certainly diffierent.

Recently my 18 months old SHB102MX split at the non-racket foots big toe for some reason. There is a big hole right where my toenail is located, I guess it happens when I push myself towards the net with my non-racket foot but who knew that Yonex shoes aren't durable all that durable? 

Anyway I'm in the market for new ones. The SHB86 look very nice and the regular 92 is also available where I live. Does anyone know if they more durable than the SHB102 I had and are they any good? 
Where I live the SHB86 and 92 are EUR 75,- and the 102 is EUR 90,-
Other shoes that are in stock are the SHB F1, SC2EX, SC5EX but I don' t know anything about them.

To be honest I would expect shoes to split round the toe area of the non racket foot, I know I drag my foot and get heavy wear there so I wouldn't necessarily worry about that.

I used to wear 92's, and still would if I could get them, but they split round the inside right heel for some reason. I have the black and white 86's and thoroughly recommend them, a very comfortable shoe. As to the durability, only time will tell. I tend to get about 18 months out of my shoes now. The orange 86's look smart in photos, but in my opinion look cheap and tacky in real life.

after some hunting I got SHB 85 my size for 60 EUR. Perhaps the difference between 85 and 86 is not worthwhile the difference ~20EUR in price.

I bought the regular SHB86 for €75,-  I'm loving the increased speed and the support is still good.
What I miss coming from the SHB102MX, are the latheral claws and the wave pattern sole.
But I must say they look amazing, the orange ones looked kind of fake…

I also got my racket restrung from a BG80 to a BG66UM and I have a feeling that my repulsion, control have gone up and the string makes a lot more noise thatn the BG80, which is very nice. This is more a topic for a different thread though.

I have a question about footwear. I have extremely flat feet (literally, meaning without any arch), and all the yonex badminton shoes I've tried gave me blisters. What shoes would you suggest for flat feet? I have a shoe size of 10.5 mens US.

Have you tried changing the innersoles? May be this will resolve your problem.
