Ever since I started Cool East Market over ten years ago, I have been looking for the soft-soled Chinese shoes, also known as "kung fu" shoes. They were hard to find and always out of reach. Finally, I found a source with a good price. There are just a few sizes so far but I hope to get more in the future. The soft cotton sole molds itself to the contours of your feet, making for a perfect fit. This traditional style of shoe used to be handmade, made of up layer upon layer of carefully stitched cotton soles. It is still carefully made and has become very popular, both as an indoor training shoe and for slippers.
