THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST SHOES FOR BADMINTON THAT I HAVE BOUGHT.
Bought this shoes about 14 months back but could used it just for last 4 months because of COVID lockdown.
Excellent cushion and ankle support plus grip. Completely took away my ankle pain.
Sole rubber erased so quickly in just 4 months for both shoes and it started tearing apart. The premium shoes (5999) of Decathlon but too poor quality sole.
Response to customer complaint.
When visited Decathlon whitefield Banglore, Folks were quick to respond in second as if they have made up their mind to resist without even properly listening and understanding customers complain.
Guy 1: sole has some dust so it’s clear case of slip and sole damage because of slipping. When argued is it expected to wear in 3 months that never happens for other shoes, he agreed to send expert to explain.
Guy 2: Claimed as national champion and quick to blame the damage to bad footwork. He was quick to add that I can’t comment about quality of courts you have been playing (looking at some minor dust on sole).
I had two questions to him-
1. I play only 3 days a week one one of the best courts and this shoes is being used only for last 4 months, Is your premium shoe designed only for best footwork players and if someone is little off footwork then shoes is too weak to take impact and expected to give away immediately in 3 months. I have had been using your other previous premium models of Decathlon but they why they never gave up with sole, if my footwork is terrible. Also why both shoes sole is getting equally damaged and it’s giving away across the sole but guy is predetermined to defend citing his experience of usage of this shoes as national player before it was available for commercial sale in India.
2. I play only at Play9 whitefield Bangalore, one of the best courts in the area. In India shoes will have minor dust when you step to bathroom or sometimes you walk few steps outside from car parking to court but we do clean the soles. But when guy don’t want to accept shoe sole is too week but rather want to blame on footwork, quality of courts then ....?
Final comment: loved the shoes for ankle cushion, support and grip. Great look but terribly weak sole. Premium product with no sole ...waste of money. Other team mates made fun of my love & choice for Decathlon shoes over other known premium brands. Completely disappointed. Also they claimed this kind of issue has never been reported but it’s already appearing couple of times in review section.
Nice shoes with cushion support. Nice look and grip on wooden floor seems to be great. Expected little more stability/stiffness for movements as the soul seems to be too soft for quick movements. Soul does not provide flat base support as the cushion bends it sideways. Expected a stiffer sole. Great product otherwise
This shoe is narrow in the front. I was said the shoe will expand once we start using. It did not happen and giving pain in the front toes and calf. I really regret buying this shoe
Very good comfort and cushioning is provided।
Grip is excellent too
It's hold Ur legs comfortable to avoid Mis foot and injuries due to this
Recommended for serious players।
