The first pair of Feiyue shoes I ordered arrived in a random paper bag with some chinese print. My initial impression of the shoes were that they were cheap looking and sub par quality. Upon trying them on, despite ordering the correct size according to the site, they are about three full US sizes too small, and extremely narrow.
I requested a refund and to send the shoes back. The retailer asked that I instead take a small amount of money and "give the shoes to somebody else that can use them" as they were a new company and it would cost them too much to return the shoes. I reluctantly game them to a much younger friend and ordered another pair.
This time I ordered a three sizes larger shoe from a different retailer. The shoes arrived promptly and in different packaging (a printed black bag with a string closure). Inspection of the shoes revealed a significantly different looking shoe. Better quality, a stitched label on the tongue and a thicker canvas. THESE WERE THE SHOES I WAS EXPECTING!!!
Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), the new shoes appeared to be sized correctly according to US sizing, which meant that I had unknowingly ordered my shoes three sizes too big this time! Although they were still narrow (I do have wide feet), they were far too long for me to wear. Instead, I will inevitably end up giving these shoes to someone else as well. All said I have spent close to $60 and I have nothing to show for it.
Conclusion: Based on the widely varying reviews about these shoes on this site, it appears that some customers are receiving knock-off Feiyues, as I did my on first order. This is a quality assurance issue, and it should be addressed by Amazon.
I just received my Feiyue Martial Arts Shoes, Black, 44. I wear a size US 10.5D and this fit very well. They are light weight and seem well constructed. The canvas is somewhat thick and stiff, but will break in easily. I do find the sole to be very "grippy" so I should not be slip sliding away. Though on some moves it could be problematic if I need to slide my foot. I would think with a little wear that should not be an issue.
Although lightweight, there is a coating around the base and the rubber which prevents these from being as breathable as regular canvas shoes. For me my feet run hot so this might become an issue on long workouts.
My only complaint is the chemical smell. As with most items coming from China, there is a distinct odor that I find quite offputting. Since I have been down this path before I figure it will take a few weeks to air out. I am sure I could throw them into the washing machine but would prefer to let these mellow on their own. Minus 1/2 star
I will revisit this review in a few months and let you know how the wear and tear is going
They do have a new rubber scent but to me it smells like any other athletic shoe just after purchasing. As a reference I wear a size 11 in converse shoes and ordered a 45. My toes barely touch the end but haven't had any discomfort after 4+ hours of wear.
I love these so much that I ordered another pair in white and am trying size 46 to see if those fit better. Highly recommended!
Before I discovered these shoes, I had bought a different brand of martial arts shoes, but those shoes would start to tear so easily after minimal use, and I would have to go to class with worn out shoes, but these shoes are very durable in comparison.
The only problem I have ever had with these shoes is that after about 4 years, the bottom of the shoes started to tear open from being extremely worn out, which was why I bought a second pair of shoes. However, I have to say that they lasted me a long time before they started to wear out. These are my all-time favorite martial arts shoes, and I've recommended them to all of my classmates at martial arts.
