Also sorry if i am not being clear enough unfortunately i am not very experienced with mice/eletric engineering however i really love my old sensei shape and wanted to save him.

You can use a multimeter in resistance mode to sound out which pin goes to which color, then look at a USB type A pinout to see what "normal" color that corresponds to.

Though the old cable is most likely broken right where it comes out of the mouse. You could probably just cut out that six inches or so and reconnect the old connector.

The shield one is going to be connected to the shroud around the four other wires, you should be able to figure that one out just by looking at it.

If you want to repair like TranquilTempest said, here are some helpful pics.

You could also check the PCB. Rare you will find a description at the pcb near or under the socket.

If you do the multimeter thing:

This is always the USB 2.0 male connector.
