Yonex Power Cushion Comfort Z, Spring into Action, New Yonex Badminton Shoe Review

Updated: Jan 6

The most cushioned model yet, the Yonex POWER CUSHION COMFORT Z is back with a whole new look and feel. The COMFORT Z series, which is a favorite of badminton legend, Lin Dan, has been reinvented and redesigned. The new POWER CUSHION COMFORT Z worldwide released on June 24, 2022.

The POWER CUSHION COMFORT series is characterized by its high cushioning performance. The heel and forefoot are equipped with Power Cushion designed specifically to absorb shock associated with badminton footwork. By improving shock absorption, our POWER CUSHION+ technology transforms impact into energy. A 28% increase in shock absorption and a 62% increase in repulsion when compared to the standard EVA materials.


The propulsion in the COMFORT Z is even more pronounced through the implementation of Feather Bounce FOAM, a lightweight, high repulsion material built to support agile, fast-paced footwork. The Feather Bounce FOAM is 8% lighter in weight, while generating 20% more repulsion. This combined with FEATHER LIGHT X, Yonex’s lightest midsole material, provides smooth and fluid footwork. Find racquet-grade repulsion but for your footwork with the 3D POWER GRAPHITE SHEET. Our proprietary graphite sheet is built to flex and generate power and propulsion with each step, while providing stability from unwanted twist.





FLEXION UPPER is utilized for a more secure and comfortable fit. FLEXION UPPER is a soft stress-free design with minimal material overlap and a larger seamless surface. An Inner Bootie is integrated into the shoe replacing the conventional tongue for improved comfort and better all-around fit.

3D POWER GRAPHITE SHEET

Yonex’s proprietary graphite sheet is built to flex and generate power with each step, while providing stability from unwanted twist.






Feather Bounce FOAM and FEATHER LIGHT X

Feather Bounce FOAM is a lightweight, high repulsion material built to support agile, fast-paced footwork. The Feather Bounce FOAM is 8% lighter in weight, while generating 20% more repulsion than the previous COMFORT models. FEATHER LIGHT X is Yonex’s lightest midsole material, providing smooth, fluid footwork.



RADIAL BLADE SOLE

The grip pattern of the sole has been redesigned creating the RADIAL BLADE SOLE. By finely arranging a windmill shape that combines areas with large and small indentations, the weight of the shoe is dispersed, and the grip is improved by approximately 3%*. Resulting in a grip that supports quick dashes and sudden stops.



FLEXION UPPER and Inner Bootie

The FLEXION UPPER is a soft stress-free design with minimal material overlap and a larger seamless surface for a more comfortable fit. An Inner Bootie is integrated into the shoe replacing the conventional tongue for improved comfort and better all-around fit.
