A key feature of all YONEX footwear, the YONEX POWER CUSHION absorbs shock then reverses the impact energy for smooth transfer into the next movement.
Verification: When dropped from 7m above a POWER CUSHION sheet, an egg will bounce back 4m without damage.
The hard top and bottom layers absorb 30% more shock than our original Power Cushion and provide 5% more repulsion for enhanced transfer of energy. The soft middle layer quickly returns to its original shape after receiving a shock load, converting the shock energy into power for fast and light footwork.
The YONEX Round Sole is designed to provide all-around support for quick and smooth footwork. The Round Sole ensures smooth movements and transfer of maximum energy.
A super-light graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the foot to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.
YONEX Synchro-Fit Insole construction creates a secure contact between foot and shoe, reducing energy wastage through an improved fit.
Fig 1. Compared with conventional badminton shoes, the mid to heel section on the insole is elevated to provide an improved fit between foot and shoe.
Fig 2. By holding the heel firmly against the insole, the gap between foot and shoe is reduced, improving comfort and performance, ensuring the foot has maximum grip inside the shoe.
For agile and stable footwork, the hexagrip pattern provides 3% more grip and is 20% lighter than standard sole material.
Inner Bootie: Tongue connected with shoe opening reduces overlapping layers for a more snug fit.
Asymmetric design with a curved eyelet creates a natural snug fit around the inner arch.
A toe-centric design that cuts down on pressure in the big toe, as well as offering improved support at the mid-foot and heel for a stable fit. Power loss is reduced, allowing for swift footwork.
Strong material with varying stiffness in key areas of the forefoot provides both stable support and soft comfort.
Elongating the TPU section reinforces the foot during quick, harsh lateral movements.
