Feiyue Shaolin Soul vintage-style trainers

Shaolinsoul

Outside of China, the Feiyue name isn’t widely known, but in that country, it has been synonymous with casual footwear since 1920, gaining a reputation in martial arts circles in the 1930s for producing flexible and lightweight shoes.

And the shoes are still being made in China, using the same shoe-making techniques and factories that made them famous all those years ago. Some of the designs are contemporary, others, like the wonderfully-named Shaolin Soul (pictured above), have a stripped-down design with echoes of a bygone era.

And they’re priced well too – £40 a pair.
