Is it good for badminton?

I bought these exact same shoes from Sportchek on Sept 15th for $73.42 after tax - still unworn.
Does anyone know if its possible to get a primematch easily?

that depends if you're good at badminton. Court shoes are court shoes.

They should be fine. I've seen many badminton players wear asics. My first pair of badminton shoe was a Reebok court shoe design for volleyball

Good deal! Thanks OP, needed to replace my old rockets, and these are decent shoes for squash. No amazing but good enough for me.

"Absolutely" coming from an OFSAA single finalist training 6 days a week wearing addidas court shoes. What gets people hurt and injured is the lack of footwork mostly.

I disagree. Not every court shoes are made the same. Badminton shoe are designed for side way movement and you will find the bottom patterns are different from other court shoes.

With that said, the rocket are good enough for badminton unless you play in the competitive levels. It is not as light as YY and is wider. However it is very durable and can last a lot longer then YY.

Just my 2 cents.

These shoes are volleyball shoes. They can be used for badminton but they don’t have the lateral support that a good badminton shoe offers.

so what shoes have lateral support? whats yy?

i thought there are 3 type of shoes: running, lateral support also called court shoes, and weight training shoes
