One thing that I do not like about Feiyue's is the way people look & comments, and the way some other traceurs talk. One guy mocked me making "Ninja" & Asian jokes about them/me. Needless to say I will not be training with him if he is going to talk and act like that, /rant.


Whaaaat?

People will find ANYTHING to make fun of. I'm surprised they can find a way to tease Feiyues. They look like Converse ffs. But don't just walk away from one of your friends just because he makes Asian jokes. Make sure you've at least told him you don't appreciate the jokes. I noticed with pretty much everyone I know can be stereotypical like that, including me, without noticing sometimes. After all, it's a joke. But if he understands that it's bugging you and continues to do it, make an even better joke and poke his eye out with a chopstick  :-Sarcasm or better yet, 540 kick him with your Feiyues on.

My first Feiyues are due to arrive next week, and if they work out that will probably be the only type of shoes I will wear for the rest of my life.

I haven't had a chance to pressure test them yet but the Saucony Bullets are feeling amazing.



Dont they feel like they slide around alot? They work...But how long will the traction last and I felt kinda out of control while sprinting in them.

Undeclared Winner, I got a totally different reaction from my Feiyues than you did :P.

A lot of people thought they were really cool-looking shoes (although any white shoes pop out anyway) and one guy who claims he does parkour actually immediately asked if they were my "parkour shoes". He ended up ordering some the same night lol.

I haven't even used them for parkour yet but I still suggest that anyone who has ~$25 to spare should try a pair. They're really comfortable with an extra 2-3mm in the heel/ankle area so it makes them easy to slip on and off. They have never fallen off by accident though, so it makes for a pair of shoes that you forget you have on. /review

Ive trained in tigers for about a year and my insoles started falling apart under the balls of my feet, resulting in some serious leg pain that I had to take about 3 weeks off to remedy, I ripped the insoles out of them to extend their life but its just not the same

just ordered some aqualites so ill post up a review of those once I use them for a while, for sure they arent in the low price demographic though

also, those bullets look just like tigers with different tread

Glad my post helped clear some things out for people ^^

They slide around a little more than other, more structured shoes but not enough to make me use something else. The feel I get from the ground and the light weight make up for the looser feel. And I haven't had a problem with grip yet, I actually just ran the American Ninja Warrior course in these and they performed great.
