I have wide feet, but it stretched to fit my feet, due to leather uppers. I do have size 11 shoes and length was perfect fit. I used them for TaiChi practice and exhibition and worked out well. Light and stylish. Have been using them on carpet and indoors only so should last me for years/years. Zappos has best price for these shoes. Was hesitant to get at first, but the return policy made it easier to get and try out.

Well, they killed Bill. It looks the same on the outside, but the February 2013 version of this shoe added 9-10mm of heel wedge inside the shoe. What used to be the most stylish zero-drop shoe on the market is now just another uncomfortable, faux-retro wedge. As of this writing you can still get the classic flat style in white (identifiable by the perforated insole), but it looks like the mass market monster has finally killed the Tai Chi. Not that it will do any good, but everyone who loved the minimalist classic version should write Asics and let them know that The Bride is not happy about what they did to her shoes.

These shoes fit a little big, but they're still great looking. Many compliments. Even though there's no arch support, my feet don't get tired and I can still wear them all day long. I am seriously thinking about getting another pair!

I am looking for a shoe to train in for martial arts. Although this shoe is comfortable and made of very soft pliable leather the tread got in the way of pivots that are necessary for my practice.

For Tai Chi these shoes rock. Very soft leather, comfortable, and hug well to give just enough stability so you can feel your moves with confidence. Does that make sense? I just can't say enough

I'd also recommend: Brooks

I love the Tai Chi shoe, but I wish it came in black with white strip.
