“I’ve been doing Tai Chi for years and I need to finally replace my Tai Chi Shoes." chances are these are the ones. These Tai Chi Shoes Plastic Sole are a classic Tai Chi slipper worn for decades in the UK by Tai Chi and Qi Gong practitioners alike. A very comfy shoe made with a very flat sole, which allows you to feel the floor and know how your body is moving under your feet. In fact, they are so comfy, people have started calling them slippers, and buy them to wear around the house.
Made with a canvas top and hard rubber plastic bottom, you’ll find your feet can breath easily. Wore indoors, the soles will long outlive the tops. They can either be the standard black sole but sometimes they can come with a dark red sole, tier way they are exactly the same shoe.
The soles are quite hard so can offer little grip on polished surfaces and laminate floors. Perfect for carpet, rough wood, outside surfaces. If you're new to Tai Chi and don;t know which floor you'll be practicing on, it might be worth trying the Tai Chi Shoes Rubber Sole instead as it offer more grip.
“They really are slippy on laminate floor. Old style wooden floors aren’t too bad but new wood and laminate will offer almost no grip. Tai Chi will be very hard to practice, so avoid those types of flooring with these shoes”

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you.
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS.
UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that.
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependant on the destination. Approximative delivery times are as follows:
