Its comfortable though someone may feel it is too shiny.
I have been using this pair for a week right after my midfoot sprain and I have to say, so far these shoes are up to the mark with excellent support to both ankle and feet
Excellent cushioning, perfect grip, light and rigid, excellent positioning of the foot inside the shoe. Honestly the best squash shoe I ever tried on or bought. Only one comment : the “padding” that is surrounding the foot in the shoe goes up to the end and quite grippy so you need to have big socks and very short nails
Excellent shoes for badminton...far better than yonex ,li-ning etc
Good Cushioning , comfort level good
GOOD SOLUTION FOR KNEE PAIN
I bought a Yonex shoes but was not at all comfortable with it. I has a hesitation before trying Artengo and I bought the best they had. The new shoe is just the perfect fit for my requirement and is excellent. It is really value for money.
Non flexible at toe design faulty
Thank you for reaching us and giving your valuable feedback.
BS990 shoe is meant for advanced players with intensive footwork.
High end badminton shoes have a stiffened toe intentionally designed to provide your feet a proper hold.
In case of BS990, TPU sections (rigid plastic) is installed at the front and sides of the shoe to make sure that your feet is held properly even when you are decelerating, accelerating or changing direction particularly sharply.
Since there is high cushion inside the shoe there is a chance that the size taken by you is not the correct fit for you.
Hence Kindly visit any nearby Decathlon store and try a higher size.
Or else you can try our intermediate shoes which are meant for moderate intensity footwork.

I hope I was able to solve your concern. In case of further queries feel free to write back to us.
The shoe looks tough and the grip is good and cushioning is amazing. However its too hard, and doesn't fit your feet like a glove the way asics gel rocket 7 does. The foot can slip and twist a little inside the shoes because of this. Also the thickness of sole is too much. Badminton shoes need to keep the shoe thickness to minimum,otherwise the ankle might twist. Overall its an amazing shoe but not designed for badminton. I would suggest buying asics gel rocket 7 which is about 1000 rs cheaper too. I would return the shoe if i could.. However I have already removed the tags.
I would not recommend it for badminton

Using for more than 6 months. As a advance players these shoes are super durable, comfort, cushion is un matchable. I believe price is competative when compared to other brands. I dont feel pain in ankle or knee due to cushion installed in it. Sole is perfect grip in synthetic courts.
