The Feiyue has been in circulation in China since the 1960s and is particularly popular with martial artists. Meanwhile, these canvas shoes have made the leap from Shaolin to every Kung Fu school in the world.
No wonder, because the shoes are tailor-made for intensive martial arts training. The canvas uppers are hard wearing, lightweight and breathable. The stitched uppers are glued all around to the vulcanised rubber sole and can therefore withstand demanding martial arts training. Thanks to the uniform thickness of the sole, kicks, jumps and deep stances feel like you are doing the exercises barefoot. This minimal shoe principle promotes the natural position of the foot and ensures an even development of the muscles.
The Feiyue is ideal for wider feet, because the fit is very generously cut. Thanks to the metal-reinforced eyelets though, the shoe still stays firmly on the foot. In terms of longevity, the Feiyue is a little behind our Shuang Xing. Especially in outdoor training and grinding steps, the soft rubber sole can wear off within a few months.
The sizes now correspond to EU sizes – it is no longer necessary to order one size larger.
Very strong – the shoes have durable canvas uppers and a non-marking rubber sole. The laces are reinforced with metal eyelets ensuring firm placement of laces. Shoe tip, as well as the outer and inner side of the front third are reinforced.
Ideal for indoor and outdoor use – whether in the martial arts hall, a gym, for jogging on the road, training in the park or simply as trainers. The Feiyue meets all requirements and offers a secure foothold on any surface.
Minimal shoe principle – the sole of the Feiyue is flat and promotes the natural posture of the foot. The foot will be forced to activate its own muscles for an ideal posture, creating a feeling similar to walking barefoot, which is very healthy.
Washable – because the material is canvas, the shoe can be washed in the washing machine at 60°C. Thus, a white sneaker stays white longer and the sports shoes stay fresh longer.
