ok ok product
this is a good looking smart shoe firts well. The shoe can fit well -adjusts well and in most cases 1 size small should be fine , but recommend to try before you buy. The sole is bot crad with minimal cushoning and als o a it heavy . Felt this should be 200-300 cheaper and also not recommended for intense playing 2-3 hrs a day.
I am using this about 1 year, Now i have permanent knee pain and too much muscle pain during play. It is never good for usual players. It will causes heavy health problems as i suffer. I purchased it from Kottayam showroom, they didn't said about its use. Now this time, i am seeing this product details online, and now am seeing the usage( Once in a week ) of this shoe. When i went to store to purchase , they said only about the quality. That I accept, Very good quality, good looking and suitable for leg. But not good for Play.
Dear Decathlon, As a middle calls batminton player i am saying, none of them are buying batminton shoe for playing once in a week.
We are really sorry that BS700 badminton shoe didn't meet your expectations.
We would like to inform that BS700 badminton shoe is meant for beginner.
Beginner implies to a player who plays once/twice a week or the game intensity is low.
A beginner player's footwork is yet to be developed and it is common to have a few wrong steps while playing. Beginner shoes hence comes with low or no cushioning to avoid the chances of you twisting your ankle during those wrong foot steps.
BS700 is a shoe specially designed for beginner badminton players. The center of gravity is low for the shoe, has mesh for more breath ability and the natural rubber sole gives you a perfect grip.
As told by you, you have been playing for a year now, I believe your footwork is now better than a beginner, hence you should move to a shoe with better cushioning to ensure that your knees and ankle are safe. I am sure upgrading to a more cushioned shoe will resolve the problem of pain in the knee and muscles.

Bought if for my son who is a crazy badminton player. He is just loving it. He says it is now govind h better control and movement.
This product is suitable for playing badminton but its some what costly. after using one month i felt it was costly we are getting this kind of products with less price in other brands
the shoes when i bought i went one size down to have a compact tight fit.
but somehow it is too painful to wear it and I can't wear it again.I dont know whether i can exchange it or not
ENTRY LEVEL PRODUCT...ITS JUST OK FOR PLAYING...NOT MUCH COMFORT...QUALITY IS OK
It's the best Shoe in Decathlon for beginners.
Sole if correctly hard for small stones and yet soft enough to give you confort wearing it the whole day. Planning to buy? Then don't think and go buy it.
