Hi all,

What is the difference between the Butterfly Lezoline Rifones and Lezoline Mach shoes? Which one provides better grip, cushioning, lateral support etc?

I have both, been using my Mach for 1.5 years. So the difference between them is the top of the shoe. Rifones has this rubbery cover at the toes and stronger fake leather construction, while the Mach is mesh and some fake leather.
Rifones will give higher support. The grip and cushioning is identical. I'd buy the Rifones.
Also just a note I usually use 260mm shoes and from the Rifones that is well fitting, from the Mach I would go down to 255mm. Rifones is more snug fitting for some reason.

Thanks. 
What support exactly do you mean by 'higher support'?


Is the cushioning identical or do the Rifones have an edge there as well?

Not just the sole is holding you on the ground. The upper part is also stretching and holding your foot. Rifones has a stronger construction, Mach has a lot of mesh. You can imagine mesh having more give than rubber and fake leather.

Cushioning is the same.

I also believe Rifones should be more durable even though the Mach has great durability. Again mesh vs stronger materials.

So apart from the Butterfly flagship shoes (Rifones), are there any other equally good or even better shoes from other manufacturers?

I have the rifones and the li Ning ma long signature shoe. I think both are great but the li Ning has better support and fits my D width foot better.
