The SHB-101LTD is Yonex top-of-the-line performance badminton shoes using latest hi-tech materials and years of experience in designing and manufacturing badminton shoes. This year, 2009, Yonex has improved its highly successful technology, the Power Cushion. The Power Cushion collects and then reverses impact energy into the next movement. The replacement is 3-Layer Power Cushion. This 3-in-1 performance cushion provides 30% more protection against shock and 5% more repulsion.
In contrast with the original Yonex Power Cushion which absorbs shock at a single point on its surface, the new 3-Layer Power Cushion absorbs shocks across its entire 3-layer constructions. The hard top and bottom layers absorbs 30% more shock than Yonex original Power Cushion and 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.
In addition, Yonex also redesigned its insole. The new Power Cushion Insole MC provides the performance advantage of instant resilience that minimizes shock and puts more power into your footwork. The Yonex new Insole construction extends support inside the shoe to check side-to-side movement. With no lateral movement to diminish power, more speed and more power are transferred into your movements.
Lastly, Yonex also uses Double Russel Mesh, an ultra fine mesh that is extremely lightweight and durable, to provides eight times more air-exchange for releasing moisture than ordinary mesh fabric to reduce smell and give comfort to the feet. Tough Guard III over synthetic leather to increase the durability/strength of by up to 3 times. The Tough Guard III material is also more resistant against heat for longer comfort and performance.
