Cheap Stuff I Like

Best $15 you ever spent!

Best $15 you ever spent!

This is one in an occasional series of posts on really cheap things that I like – either because they have an incredible price to performance ratio or they just look great. This first item delivers on both.

They are the Feiyue Brand Wushu Shoes. They’re intended for Kung Fu training but they excel for just walking around and looking great. I get frequent compliments on them and last year they were all the rage in the UK hipster scene (which drove the price to about $60). They are simple Chinese-made shoes constructed of rubber and cotton but have shown little wear after 6 months of regular use. They also provide a comfortable fit (although not a lot of arch support). I wore them all 4 days of Comic-Con and just tramped around San Francisco in them. They make great travel shoes since putting them on and off is slipper-like. Perfect for those annoying airport security checks. The only negative is the strong rubber smell when you first get them, but that wears off after a couple of weeks. Price: $14.99. Comfy, cheap shoes with a martial arts heritage. Highly recommended. Link
