There should be no difficulty finding Tai Chi shoes for yourself or your martial arts student. They can be categorized in the traditional Chinese common shoe, and are used by almost all the martial arts as comfortable, durable, and inexpensive. They are made with comfortable cotton and rubber soles to provide flexibility and are light enough for any martial art.

Tai Chi shoes come in many sizes and two basic styles, although these can be found in different colors, decorations, and fabrics. The first style of Tai Chi shoe is a slip-on, rubber sole shoe with black colored cotton and an elastic upper edge. The second style Tai Chi shoe is similarly made, but has an adjustable band to securely hold the shoe on.

How To Purchase Tai Chi Shoes

To measure your foot's size, stand on a piece of paper and trace any foot, with your pencil held perpendicular to the floor. Measure the length of the tracing to find it's length in inches, and round up if needed. If you are planning to wear socks, measure your foot with your socks on. Bring this information to the martial arts shoes source of your choice, and they will help you purchase a good pair of Tai Chi shoes.

You can find martial arts supplies online through the pages here or by doing a web search. If you are near a Chinatown in any metropolitan area, you can also find them in person. However, for the ease of shipping and finding the right shoe store, the Internet is always the most recommended place for martial arts uniforms.
