In this study, we used biomechanics testing on the typical badminton movement to compare the shoe hardness effect on the body kinetics response. Six excellent badminton players participated in this test. Heels of ground reaction forces and landing time were collected through force-measuring system and video analysis system. Our results indicate that the peak ground reaction forces was less when wearing the badminton shoes with less hardness sole, but no statistically significant difference. Meanwhile, the heel landing time was less in the shoes with higher hardness sole. Badminton shoes are not only shall protect the foot joints and muscles in exercise or competition, but also possess the function to improve the athlete's reaction speed
