Guide to buying Badminton Shoes

Why buy badminton shoes?

Badminton shoes are specially designed to be light, well gripped and protective. Wearing proper badminton shoes not only lets you move efficiently on the court, but also helps protect your feet and ankles from injuries. Badminton shoes also use patented special technology to increase shock absorption. It has been tested that the Yonex Power Cushion can bounce a raw egg off of it without breaking! Imagine that cushion working for your feet! Without a doubt, Badminton Shoes are one of the best investments you can make into your badminton gear.

What size should I buy?

This depends a lot on how you wear your street shoes. If you typically wear your street shoes very loose, then the same size badminton shoe should work well for you. If your street shoes tend to be a little tight and a 'perfect fit,' then a half size bigger may be better for your badminton shoes. This is because sports shoes tend to be slightly tighter to protect your feet. Getting a half size bigger than your 'perfect fit' street shoes will fit your feet perfectly. And don't forget, new shoes will slowly wear in.
