Thanks for the review. These are definitely not for me. The price point is nice, but the narrow toe box is a deal breaker. I am also not a fan of the aesthetics of these.

These remind me of the Asics Onitsuka Tigers, only with mesh uppers instead of leather.

Yeah, the narrow toe box killed me too, cramped the hell outta my pinky toe.

Martial arts shoes are a good way to go for low budget options. most of them are naturally zero-drop simply due to the nature of the art.
the brand fei yue is a good example--the sole is somewhat "rounded", which makes balancing interesting, but it is zero-drop as far as i can tell.
wrestling shoes are great, too, except that i think the sole wouldn't last long outside the gym. never tried, though. any thoughts?

a similar pair of shoes were my first 'barefoot shoes' ever, back in 2002, long before there was anything avaiable. I loved them, and wore them out completely, but nowadays I might object to the narrwo toebox... good memories...

yea, I need EE most of the time and usually only the New Balance gives you that choice. So tempting, these shoes look great and the price point is excellent.

What is the sole made of? Is it some kind of rubber or is it a plastic like TPU?

The sole is made of rubber that is similar to a gym shoe, but allows for maximum flexibility. I do want to thank all of you guys for the comments on the shoes, and do not hesitate to contact us directly at In regards to the martial arts look, see

The shoes are very comfortable and I have what you say normal feet. I do not have narrow or wide feet. I always buy size 12 shoes and these shoes fit me perfect. Great side protection with the leather. Bravo!

I am a runner and am always looking for lightweight shoes to train in that are not spikes. I have used these shoes during training and they work AMAZING! They are lightweight enough and give me the support on the outside to run around curves. I have always worn Adidas shoes because i do have wide feet, but the toebox feels fine to me.
