A beautiful badminton shoe of high quality and with a strong sparkling look. The toe parts have been reinforced by adding rubber print at the medial side of the toe. The upper material has been updated with high density PU making the Lingus V4 strong while kept flexible. Shoe technology: X-Technology The ankle is exposed for twisting in the many sideways motions in badminton. A twist in the ankle is one of the most common injuries in badminton, but with the evolutionary FZ FORZA X-Technology the stability of the ankle is increased which prevent/reduce the twisting of the ankle. Leteral stability The lateral stability technology enhances the durability of the shoe and the lateral stability of the forefoot during intense and rapid transfer of direction. Lateral stability is important in a badminton shoe when moving quickly around on court from side to side. Dura-coat Dura-coat is our high-tech microfiber PU treated with a thin coating. The combination of Dura-coat gives the shoe an extreme durability and a unique abrasion resistance. Dura-coat is applied on areas where the shoe is most exposed for abrasion. Drylex Drylex consists of special mesh layer and holes in the shoe that provides excellent breathability for the feet. Drylex helps transporting moisture away from your feet to keep them dry and comfortable. Tuck board With our Tuck Board increases the shoe’s torsional flexibility. Torsional flexibility supports the foot’s natural movement and allows the foot to move faster. Our Carbon Tuck Board is made of three-dimensional carbon fiber sheets that support the torsional movement and reduce stress on the arch tendon. FZorb ++ FZorb is a fantastic material for shock absorption. By molding the FZorb into the heel-area if the sole, decreases the many hard shocks that player’s feet are exposed to during the game, as well as providing increased comfort for the player. For a larger shock absorption is FZorb++ the right choice. These shoes are provided with a hole under the heel, making room for an increased deformation of the material which increases the shock absorption. ASE + By inserting this light weight TPU piece under the arch creates both a lighter and stronger shoe but also more stable. ASE supports the arch and helps prevent pronation and torsion in the shoe for increased functionality and comfort. + By extending the ASE, the FZClaw appears on the lateral side of the forefoot. FZClaw significantly enhances the lateral stability of the foot and provides the shoe extra durability during intense and rapid transfer of direction. FZone grip With our FZone Grip ensures excellent grip with the court which supports the slip resistance. FZone Grip consists of various patterns that support variety of movements in badminton, so the grip on the court is optimal in all game situations. We only use rubber of the highest quality to our soles to ensure an extremely wear resistant outsole.
