The new YONEX Power Cushion SHB 65 Z3 Wide is designed with the goal of a “shoeless feel” in mind. The new Yonex Power Cushion SHB 65 Z3 Wide combines an upgraded comfortable fit and increased traction for an overall elevated badminton shoe that glides across the court with ease.
To achieve an improved fit on this all-around model, a new seamless upper and lateral shell was introduced to the classic synthetic leather build. The new seamless upper is an expanded synthetic leather piece that minimizes material overlap. This releases the stress from when the shoe is flexed, allowing a more comfortable fit. The hardened shell-like portion near the ankle, also known as the expanded lateral shell, provides a secure fit around the ankle.

The YONEX Power Cushion absorbs shock and then reverses the impact energy for smooth transfer into the next movement. Compared with urethane, the YONEX Power Cushion construction provides 3 times more shock-absorbing power. When dropped from 7m above a Power Cushion sheet, an egg will bounce back 4m without damage.
POWER CUSHION +
LATERAL SHELL + STABILITY REINFORCEMENT
The LATERAL SHELL is the shell-like portion, positioned to support the area that absorbs the most force, reducing lateral shake in sidestep footwork. The STABILITY REINFORCEMENT is composed of abrasion-resistant artificial leather that stabilizes movement and improves lateral shake.
Power Graphite Sheet
A graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the sole to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.
Feather Bounce Foam
A new lightweight cushioning material designed to provide an added bounce with each step.
Durable Skin Light
Combining rubber-like flexibility with the stiffness of the hard film, the polyurethane-based Durable Skin Light lets you play light on your feet while maintaining a secure and snug fit.
A bootie is integrated into the shoe connecting to the tongue and cradling your foot for improved comfort and a better all-around fit.
Toe Assist Shape
The YONEX Round Sole is designed to provide all-around support for quick and smooth footwork. The Round Sole ensures smooth movements and the transfer of maximum energy.
RADIAL BLADE SOLE
Designed for confidence in directional change. A new sole pattern increasing traction in vertical, horizontal, and diagonal movements
SEMI ONE-PIECE SOLE
Toe and heel rubber soles combined into a singular piece for improved stability and more traction through the additional surface area.
