I haven't seen or read much about this shoe, but I decided to take the plunge and buy a pair. My Gel Resolution 2's were done, and I wasn't too impressed, they wore out extremely fast and comfort was so-so. Anyway, I wore the Yonex today for the first time, and boy, did they feel nice. No break-in required AT ALL, extremely light, yet stable and supportive. Fits my rather high arched foot perfectly. I was zipping around the court like never before. Plus, they're well priced. I doubt there is a better shoe out there for the money, so why are they not popular? Are they considered to be "recreational player" shoes? Or am I just the only one who likes them? BTW, I play every day at a fairly high level, NTRP ~5.5 to 6.0.
