After two years of material and wear testing process, A922 has successfully brought out the most comfortable fitting experience ever.From the initial selection and reinforcement of materials, to the tensile strength test of shoes on inside/outside, to the final shoe-wearing experience, all the efforts have been made to ensure the best comfortability ever.
Coping with the asterisk steps, the center is the rounded-shape design surrounded by triangular shapes. The radiation pattern provides more grip on the court during lateral and vertical movements. The small lump pattern distribution adds additional grip as the sensor and increases the grip.
A unique breathing mesh layer is used to increase ventilation. It facilitates the heat dissipation. This creates a more comfortable environment for the feet.
New dual-density wedge structure midsole combined the ENERGYMAX3.0 on top, and Light Resilient EVA beneath, in accordance with the principles of sports biomechanics tangent angle of 7°, to balance the moments and angles of knee and ankle joint during exercise, achieving energy absorption and stable support together.
V-SHAPE last is designed to reduce the excess space of front shoe for Greek -type-toes, which’s second toe is longest, and foot shape looks more pointed and slender, brings out the foot feeling of fitness.
Upgraded outsole rubber, slip-resistant performance increases by 21% on dry PU floor.
The inner surface of the toe is made of super wear-resistant special material which greatly prolongs the service life of the footwear. In a wear level testing, the super wear-resistant technology applied to the toe is proved 16 times more wear-resistant than average PU leather.
In the initial stage of the development and testing of A922, the testers were doubtful about the non-leather choice. Not only is the contour totally different from the products on the market, the shoes also feel much softer than previous models. Despite the doubts, VICTOR still decides to use DIGITKNIT material as the upper of A922 and manages to make the shoes comfortable, stable, as well as lightweight by focusing on the reinforcement on both sides of the upper. The initial doubts raised by the testers have disappeared after a series of shoe-fitting tests and adjustment. A922 has proved that comfort and functionality can be combined with perfect balance, which is what most professional and amateurplayers are looking for.
It’s VICTOR’s first time to apply DIGITKNIT technology to badminton shoes. The designers create a visual effect of comfortable coverage by interlacing and layering 60-degree diagonal lines with knitted fabric. The upper is made of soft DIGITKNIT fabric with 20% of hot melt yarn, which helps the material to fit and support the foot better, while provides excellent tensile strength along with the interior structure.
The Light Resilient EVA material is used for the midsole, soft yet resilient enough to withstand instant force. The Neo Duplex wedge heel offers stability and shock-absorption. Lastly, the midfoot area is engineered with Carbon Power, and the lateral forefoot area is applied with LS-S system to provide stable support.
