These shoes are based on the traditional black temple shoes of the Wudang monks. In this version, we use the traditional hand-sewn cotton sole. The traditional cotton sole is usually for indoor use. However, we added a lightweight, flexible rubber sole so you can wear it either indoors or on the street. As a result, this shoe has increased stability and comfort and is specially optimized for Kung Fu and Tai Chi practitioners. The cut should correspond to normal EU sizes.
