POWER CUSHION DIAL 88 2 UNISEX
With the concept to breed footwork performance through optimal fit, the POWER CUSHION 88 DIAL will receive updates in its tech in preparation for a rolling global release kicking off at the end of January 2022.
Hosting the BOA© Fit System is an inner bootie construct with an overwrap built of the new Durable Skin Light, a thin yet sturdy thermo-compressed film. With the introduction of this new material, the pattern of the wrap is expanded, tucking the foot in for a more comfortable yet secure experience from the inner arch to the top of the foot. The Radial Blade Sole, which made its debut on the stability-driven ECLIPSION in spring 2021, is applied to improve traction between the shoe and the court. This proprietary sole now brings a 3%* increase in traction to the 88 DIAL.

BOA© Fit System + Durable Skin Light
The BOA© Fit System allows you to tighten the shoes evenly with a single action, making them easy to put on and take off. The new upper design holds the ankle from the inner arch to the top of the foot, creating a more enveloping fit.
Durable Skin Light is a flexible yet strong film that is thermo-compressed. It is applied onto the wrap to provide an improved, secure fit with soft comfort.
RADIAL BLADE SOLE
The Radial Blade Sole is a sole with a windmill-like pattern. This sole allows subtle movement at impact in the blade portion of the pattern, generating stronger grip with the court surface. With an approximately 3%* increase in grip compared to the Hexa Grip Sole, the Radial Blade Sole supports quick dashes and sudden stops.

Shock Absorption The YONEX Power Cushion absorbs shock 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.
Semi One-Piece Sole
Previously separated, the outer rubber of the sole tread and heel are now integrated. This increases the area of contact for more grip and stability.
