DIAPAD 3 cushioning technologyThanks to the DIAPAD 3 technology, the BS990 provides excellent heel cushioning when pushing off, slowing down and landing jumps. It is composed of a supple yet dense material placed under the heel in the midsole.
IN'UP dynamic technologyThere is an elastic EVA insert in the sole underneath the forefoot. This is our IN’UP technology that makes your shoes more dynamic and helps transfer energy more efficiently when you jump, accelerate or move around the court.
HIGH MODULUS CARBON anti-twisting systemWe have placed a 3D high modulus carbon fibre piece under the arch so that the BS990 can help your foot withstand the stresses and strains put on it when you change direction particularly sharply. This insert provides excellent stability and makes your movements safer.
High-performance supportBy including TPU sections (a rigid plastic) at the front and sides of the shoes, we've made sure that your feet are held in place properly, even when you are decelerating, accelerating or changing direction particularly sharply. The two inner elastics also help secure your foot inside your shoe.

Non flexible04/07/2018Response of the brandHello Shekhar,
Thank you for reaching us and giving your valuable feedback.
BS990 shoe is meant for advanced players with intensive footwork.
High end badminton shoes have a stiffened toe intentionally designed to provide your feet a proper hold.
In case of BS990, TPU sections (rigid plastic) is installed at the front and sides of the shoe to make sure that your feet is held properly even when you are decelerating, accelerating or changing direction particularly sharply.
Since there is high cushion inside the shoe there is a chance that the size taken by you is not the correct fit for you.
Hence Kindly visit any nearby Decathlon store and try a higher size.
Or else you can try our intermediate shoes which are meant for moderate intensity footwork.
