YONEX POWER CUSHION: Drop an egg onto the Power Cushion and it will bounce back without breaking. Yonex Power Cushion Technology responds to quick and sharp movements by transforming shock into kinetic energy. Furthermore, this unique characteristic reduces muscle fatigue on your legs, so you are fresher going into the fifth and final set.
YONEX ROUND SOLE: Round Sole provides a feeling of increased comfort while maximizing the transfer of body energy into every shot. With Round Sole positioned on the side and heel of the shoe, it prevents any awkward landings and permits quick, smooth footwork around the court.
Overall great shoe. Very comfortable, forefoot is well cushioned. Been through three pairs, the midsole seems to break down at a moderate pace. Had the tongue sleeve tear on one pair. Rather mobile and not clunky. Why do they have to make these look like patent leather? Please stop with the gloss already. Just give me a basic looking shoe that performs well. At least they're not a neon like asics or most nikes.
