VG1 is VICTOR's latest innovative footwear product that provides comfort with its groundbreaking design. It's equipped with the newly designed Drop-In Midsole, allowing for excellent shock-absorption and support. With its incredible wearing performance, VG1 has been highly praised by many top Indonesian players, including men's doubles player Hendra Setiawan, mixed doubles players Praveen Jordan and Melati Daeva Oktavianti, as well as women's doubles player Apriyani Rahayu, and are chosen as their competition shoes for the upcoming tournaments.
The upper of VG1 is made of single mesh and breathable sandwich mesh, along with reinforced sewing and TPU applied to the forefoot area, so it can provide the breathability and stability required in badminton competitions. VICTOR's original Drop-In Midsole is even the result of innovative technologies.
Three-arch Pressure Equalizing Support Design – a noticeable improvement with the support performance
The ergonomic three-arch pressure equalizing support design is proven by kinetic tests to effectively equalize pressure on the foot, provide perfect support to the body, and relieve fatigue during sports activities.
The VICTOR R&D team has teamed up with Professor Tzyy-Yuang Shiang's research team from the Department of Athletic Performance of National Taiwan Normal University to conduct research on the pressure distribution performance of Drop-In Midsole. It's proven that VG's Drop-In Midsole can expand the contact area with the footbed and reduce peak pressure. The Drop-In Midsole also fits better with the sole to provide greater fatigue relief than traditional shoes in long-time wearing.

Lifted Rim: Fit, supportive, stable
The rim of Drop-In Midsole is lifted to provide support based on the needs of badminton sports. The main reinforcement includes the stability and protection on both sides of the forefoot and heel, as well as the support to the inner midfoot.
The heel-stabilizing cup shape design perfectly fits the heel with support and stability.
