    Shoes

    The shoes on the banner of this page, the ones Wawrinka wore in AUS. Are those what you're talking about?

    Because if you are, they look even sweeter in person. No suprise that Asian markets already have this and a couple other colorways for the last couple of months.

    The shoes might be specially for Taiwan or Japan as they are promoted as "limited" here.

    But I'm not sure if TW will be carrying the black and red? I mean I don't see why they wouldn't have them in stock sooner or later.

    SHT-308's are not heavily advertised , colorways for the pacific rim are usually targeted for pacific rim customers although a few get back to stateside.

    Picked up another pair of 308EX, the white/blue/silver colorway, at the Yonex shop in Singapore. Beautiful colorway! I wanted to try dropping a raw egg into the power cushion "test tube" display, but they didn't have any eggs available at the time :(

    i'm thinking of buying a 308 clay but in a dilemma with regard to size. I'm a 10 for Nike and Fila but 10.5 for Adidas Barricade/ Feathers. Which one should I follow for Yonex?

    Does anyone know how I can replicate the decal on Stan's shoes? :)
    Are these wet transfer decals?

    P**D**** in the UK used to offer monograming for shoes. I think they only offer it for rackets now. But you might email them and ask.

    Ahhh sorry, I was only there for a few days on vacation. They didn't have a good selection of tennis clothing there, mostly badminton clothes. Didn't really check the prices, sorry.

    I had a chance to play in the Yonex Power Cushion 254D and SHT-308, I bought both first 308 then 254D.

    ..............................SHT-308..............254D
    Toe Box...................More Pointed.........More Rounded(> toe room)
    Bottom Thread..........Good....................Wider
    Power Cushion...........Original.................New 3 layer
    Colorway...................Bright................. .Very Bright
    Weight......................Light................. ..Lighter
    Arch--------------- ~ Normal.................Normal


    Both shoes are comfortable and hard to notice your wearing Tennis Shoes when your playing Tennis, singles and dbls.



    All in all, 308's are excellent shoes in all departments, the 254D is an update and you wont be disappointed, I'm not.

    :)

    Gary,

    I believe they generally run true to size length-wise. If anything, they are wider than average in the toe box area. Great shoe.

    Thanks CR

    there is nothing worse than ordering a tennis shoe only to find its to small or to big and as im a half size its a pain...and also being a wider foot im always looking for a wider shoe.

    many thanks again :)

    Maybe you can take a look at SHT light (SHT22M).
    It's wide is adjustable ,mine supplied with 2 pairs of insoles with different width.

    Anyone know where I may be able to get either Yonex Power Cushion 308 metallic red or PC308 Clay Blue? It looks like these are 2012 models and no retailer is getting any more. I wear size 13.
