Feiyue shoes have been the shoe of choice for Shaolin Monks for years. Many people practicing Shaolin Kung Fu, Wu Shu, San Da and other Chinese Martial Arts are wearing these for training and practicing too. In fact, they are so popular now, people who have never even done martial arts are buying them just for the look and comfort of the shoe. Everyone is loving the Feiyue shoes.
I myself have been to the Shaolin temple a number of times and have seen the young monks running up and down flights of stairs in their worn Feiyue shoes. They’re so tough, they have to be. Henan province has dusty, stony ground. The monks don’t get plush training halls with gymnastic grade sprung wooden floors. They get concrete if they’re lucky or usually just the packed earth.
These guys don’t mess about, they need a shoe that will allow them to feel the floor, the ground they are on is quite often unpredictable, lumps and bumps all over the place. They also need a shoe that has good grip to keep them upright while practicing their Kung Fu. On all surfaces too, in any one day they might go from packed earth to concrete to flagstone flooring in the temple to carpet. They need a shoe that can perform on all these surfaces. Not only that but they also need a shoe that will not fall apart every 5 minutes these guys to not have money to burn so cannot afford to go through expensive pairs of shoes every week.
These Feiyue are the original Top One Black Feiyue Shoes. With so many different varieties of Feiyue out there on the market nowadays, especially with the boom of Feiyue fashion varieties, it is easy to buy the wrong style. People love geeking out on the Feiyue and there is a big debate about which Feiyue are the best. General opinion is the Top One with the Green Triangle on the bottom are the most original. Also these green triangle Top One shoes are the shoes the monks wear, the shoes the parkour and circus guys love too. These are the ones you want, the Green Triangle Top One Feiyue.
"We love stocking these Black Feiyue Shoes at Enso, they're tough, durable and look great. Be careful when choosing your size not to get them too tight, they won't stretch a huge amount."

I phoned Doug before placing my order as I needed to be quite sure of the product. There are different Feiyue models out there - he was supplying the correct one, with the green triangle underneath.
The shoes were posted the day I placed my order.
I am very happy with them. They are comfortable, and roomy in the toe area which I am particularly pleased with.
Good shoes. Light and flexible. Great for martial arts training.
Quality product - just as they said it would be. Very reliable. strongly recommended. Will definitely be using again
I got the shoe for a different use case compared to most. I got it for benching for powerlifting. The grip on these shoes are second to non - they even struggle to slide on carpet. A very similar feel to a lot of western shoes such as Converse. These are definitely better for sports in terms of functionality and comfort. Enso is definitely my go to for this product, as they're the official top one shoes. The shoes catered for athletics not for fashion.
The price is also undeniable. Even with next day delivery (which was literally next day delivery) plus the price of the shoe, this is a very competitive price, considering the authentic version of Feiyue's you're purchasing compared to other retailers. Always nice to help out an independent business as well! I
I would recommend these to anyone in either the black or white version! I will be purchasing again when I eventually need a replacement.
Excellent Customer Service, thank you so much for your generous gift! Good price. Quick delivery. Would recommend this trainer shoe for working out.
Don't last too long, but these aren't really designed for heavy outdoor use so perfectly understandable. Absolutely brilliant besides.
I bought the Black Feiyue shoes and have been incredibly happy with result! They fit perfectly, are comfortable and are perfectly suitable for training. I’m currently using mine whilst training for shaolin kungfu and have found that they have the appropriate flexibility.
The customer service here is also really excellent if your not sure which size to buy then they’re able to help you out so that you have the right size.
When I need a new pair of shoes I will be coming back here to buy them.
These are really great shoes. Incredibly stable and perfect for bodyweight exercise. I'm a size 8 and 42 was a perfect fit.
