The Holy Grail of martial arts footwear, they disappeared and were unavailable for years. They come with no arch support or cushion (you can add your own) and lack traction on smooth, wet surfaces. Not exactly selling points. Yet, many traditional Chinese martial artists and lion dancers won’t wear anything else on their feet when they perform. Why? No other footwear completes and enhances their martial look like jing wu boots. Nothing else comes close. Specify size or provide footprint when ordering.
