Any of you playing with Mizunos?   I was about to hit the buy button on some Wave Lightning 4's online,  but I have some reservations about transitioning speed after reading this badminton review:

I tried the Wave Tornados 3 on in a store and they were very comfortable.  Great cushioning - which would be welcome as I come home with a bruised heel at times.   I don't however want cushioning to come at the price of transitioning.  So I wonder about getting something a little closer to the ground, yet well supported.   The only other brand I've tried was Adidas but I found them to be too narrow for my foot  (9.5 US).  

I don't think I'll have an opportunity to physically test more brands,  but other suggestions are welcome.   Any relatively safe bets at $100?

I'm in Canada (Toronto Region) and the Mizunos are a big seller around here ... I have seen them used by many club players including several colleagues who love the light feel, and support they get from them. I would be willing to try them as my next shoe. I like the black ones!

Thank you for your input!    That really puts me at ease.   I think I will go ahead with the purchase then and post a review here after a couple of games.

I am using "Mizuno Wave Stratosphere 7" I find it to be a beauty to play in, its my favorite training shoe, as it is stable and has good dampening but not too soft, it also has ok width in the forefoot thus not not putting so much preassure to my toes... and i feel i can pivot pretty nicely both on the ball of my foot and on my heel and and generally pretty feel sharp on court...

(other shoes i have used is adidas stabil 6 hated that shoe as found it to be very clumpy, hi-tec switchback wonderful shoe but not much dampening but very low to the ground, but i find it has a very narrow fit for me, but once broken in they are ok, asics gel sensei, blew out the sides after 2 months of playing, nice shoe but slightly narrow not as stable in the forefoot as mizuno but it has real good dampening)
