Thank you for your feedback.
Shoe fits well and is exactly as described on the page.
The shoes fit perfectly--like a glove--and just what I wanted.
The only reason that I did not give them five stars is that I find them a bit slippery on wood and tile floors.

    There are apparently two different sizing charts on the internet and I have no idea why they differ. If I ordered based on the chart given here I would have a bad fit (too small). It went to shoes.com and used their chart and the shoe fits perfectly. On some charts (like this one) a size 44 fits US 11, but on other charts a size 44 fits 10-10.5. Using this chart I should have ordered a size 43 but it would have been too small.

    Great shoes! They are the only shoes I use these days. Comfortable, simplistic, durable (enough). I don't see a reason to have any other shoes.

    This shoe is very comfortable once one gets one that will fit. It is my opinion that it runs small as I used to wear size 42, but a 43 would not even fit the ball of my foot here. I bought it to do nighttime home care nursing, and the one that fits is somewhat large, but it is comfortable. It is not the best for traction though. When moving my client, I feel these shoes sliding, causing me to have to use more strength to do so. When practicing any forms, I have to keep my stances narrow because these shoes will continue sliding if I get wider than shoulder width. When kicking, I can go about as high as the bottom of the chest of the average man. Any higher, and these shoes will slip, and there goes balance.

    These shoes are good tor doing splits though. Be advised that if you don't have something to stop you, you won't be able to control the stretch.

    These assessments were made with a tile floor as the primary surface. Previously I had a pair of shoes like these, and the stitching at the bottom started to wear out as soon as I started walking on concrete.

    If you decide to order this shoes order 1/2 size bigger. They are tight on y feet, other than that they are ok

    These shoes fit perfectly. I wear size 10 US and bought size 43 international. I use them for my tai chi class. On humid days the shoes would be tacky on wooden floors because the cloth soles. Likewise, on cool dry days the shoes would be slippery. Haven't tried shoes made of vinyl bottoms to see if they do the same.

    I've worn these shoes for years now. They are NOT for outdoor wear - unless it's a really dry day! Enough water to saturate the sole and the shoe becomes stiff and (in my opinion) unwearable. But that is NOT a flaw in the shoe!

    They are narrow, but being 100% cotton they will stretch to fit your foot - give it a few days (3, maybe?) and they slip on with comfort. I also have a spot on the left foot where (on every pair!) my baby toe wears through the top of the shoe. So, I suppose these things do have a bit of eccentricity, but again, this is not a flaw, just the way of 100% cotton shoes!

    Depending on how much I wear them (most of every day for me!) they will last at least 3 or 4 months (if I wear them till they drop off my feet I can get 6 months or more, but people begin to make comments...). Now that may not sound like a lot, but back when I only used a pair for Tai Chi (a long time ago!), they lasted more than a year. And for the price that's not bad at all!

    And remember: These work as a wonderful everyday slipper (I even wear them to the grocery on occasion...) as well as a Tai Chi shoe.

    Just stay out of the rain.

    These shoes are great and perfect if you are training indoors.
    These shoes are NOT good for training outside.The shoes are completely made of fabric and fall apart really quick when walking over pavement & concrete.
    Lasted me One month before the bottoms wore through.

    Nice, supple shoe. I only use them indoors for taichi. I like how the cotton allows an ease of pivot rather than grabbing the floor and resisting like rubber soles.
    Simple shoes.. why get all fancy for indoor shoes?

    Id imagine the soles wouldnt last too long on a concrete/asphalt environment, but they would probably hold up fine on grass and dirt or smooth surfaces.
