      Post What are the best table tennis shoes ?

      Hi

      I'm searching for some new table tennis shoes. I really like the Asics Attack SP2, does anyone know where they sell them?
      The shoes that I now wear are the Adidas TT30. Do you any other suggestions?

      I can recommend the Asics Gel Blade Series. I always got a lot of back pain when i was playing in the usual table tennis shoes. Since i have the Asics it is much better, furthermore they are very light weighted and the durability is better.

      Look at http://tt-japan.net/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=4
      Or http://ta-q.jp/en/new-cgi/en_product_list.php?ko=16
      They are Japanese and sell genuine goods with reasonable prices.

      I would recommend you to try Mizuno Wave Medal 4 shoes. They are light and very comfortable.

      I do read many posts about members using Mizuno shoes, so i wasn't sure if that name is a model or a brand company name, but i was surprised to see that it is popular or highly recommended brand for TT shoes, then i keep looking at which model of this brand i should go with.

      Now you mentioned Wave Medal 4 one, is it the best one out of other models? aren't other models light and comfortable too?

      I was thinking what alternative to Mizuno with other known brands of TT such as Butterfly, Stiga, DHS, Tibhar,...etc, i only or ordered so far from some online stores with those names and none of them have that Mizuno brand even for only shoes, so it was like i have to use another site link to order just Mizuno, that may cost me more then to buy only shoes, not planning to buy another items from that sites unless the prices are almost same good enough and shipping is fast and the items are genuine.

      i like it very much, good for hard surface (wood floor) and teraflex. much better than mizuno wave drive on wood floor. on teraflex both are good.

      For several years I'm using Mizuno Wave Medal shoes. Very good comfort and support.
      I tried the Wave Drive A2 but didn't like them that much. Too light and did not provide decent support.

      I would like to suggest something a bit different - I have found Nike Free Trainer 3.0 (supposedly supposed to imitated barefoot play) to be extremely helpful.
      Cobra Kai TT Exponent - No mercy in this dojo, no matter your rating or the score. All spin, no power or footwork.

      Im using this currently after using stiga and butterfly shoes. Much more comfortable and this "gel" technology makes it very easy for the shoe to adjust when you use constant footwork with fast pace.

      Its the first shoe Ive tried that after some hard multiball training with fast footwork + 3-4 matches (2-2.5 hours of play total) my tendons,toes and balls of my feet dont hurt at all. Totaly recommend it, a bit expensive but its really worth it!
      I suck real bad so I train to suck less

      The Tibhar Blue Spirit is very similar to the Asics Attack SP2. Best TT shoes I have ever tried are the Asics SP2 but the Blue Spirits feel the same and wear a long time.

      Also worth knowing that the Butterfly Energy Force X shoe:

      http://www.butterflyonline.com/inven...?item_no=8074p

      Is the exact same shoe as the Asics shoe and either one are excellent:



      If you blow that image up, or the image from the Butterfly site, you can see that the sole of the shoe says Asics and that this sole is the same exact sole as the one in the original post.

      Almost all items in Wave Medal and Wave Drive lines are good. Choice of a specific model depends on personal preferences.
      Look at Equipment Reviews topics.

      Don't think there is any "best" table tennis shoe but I'm still playing with Stiga Instinct which I think is great. I have heard that many prefer badminton shoes but I think it's just personal taste. Do you have broad or narrow feets?

      Thanks for your review. I'm from Belgium and I never shopped on a Japanese webshop before, Can I trust this webshop ? I can't find a lot of different pictures of this shoe and certainly of users. Can I see pictures of your shoes? Thanks

      Yes u can trust, tt-japan.net and iruiru.com are reliable sites, support paypal. If u need box, write about it when order. tt-japan.net didn't send box to me for lower shipping cost. two pair shoes was in one big box.

      Surely there's no 'best shoe'
      It depends on your body fitness, the surface on which you play, etc.
      Specialist TT shoes are great if you play on perfect floor surfaces, and unlike me, are fit, flexible and not overweight.
      i have flexibility issues (due flying incident), and slightly over weight.
      Therefore, I need shoes with good support as well flexibility which is why I looked into it and bought
      Asics Gel Progessive 2 shoes which are general court shoes with a lot of support due to the gel.

      And best of all they take PayPal so you're guaranteed to either get the item or if not, Paypals money back guarantee which
      i have had to use now and again

      i've been using asics gel blade 3 shoes for 3 years now, the serve as gym and table tennis shoes. they have taken an absolute pounding and still have not broken in any way (now that i've said that they are probably going to explode when i next use them .
