Feiyue is a popular sneaker brand that originated in Shanghai in the 1920's. They are very popular in the street fashion scene, as well as being a top choice for martial artists for their lightweight feel and flexible sole.
If you've been living in China, you've probably seen them around! They've got a long history of being actually kind of all right shoes, a particular favorite among wushu practitioners. The 2,008 Taichi performers wore the classic white Feiyue shoes during the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremony.
Since 2005, they've also been produced by a (separate, technically legal but unaffiliated) French company (it's complicated), resulting in there being two kinds of Feiyue available in the world. The familiar is the green triangle worn by most martial artists and now the improved red circle brand. The difference is more eco friendly as well as there being an improvement on the quality of manufacture.
But do not despair we can get both for your convenience. For how long we are not sure. Clubs may bulk purchase if needed.
Did you know that Feiyue is headed by a female production manager and has a 90% female compliment in its factory? Did you also know that the revival of Feiyue in SA is run by a woman? So by supporting us in Cape Town you are empowering woman from China to SA.
