    • Editor's Description
      Also known as CM Feiyue, this chain of sneaker shops is the main retail outlet for the Shanghainese shoe brand that dates back to the 1920s. 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. Culture Matters/CM Feiyue sells the Chinese-made kind; thinner soles, more flexible canvas material, in the original black or white, high- or low-ankle versions, as well as some newer, slicker versions. Shoes go for as cheap as 98rmb, up to 500rmb-ish.
