MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

Money Back Guarantee at Tai Chi Tranquility

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful uniforms. It's tough to find things my size in off the shelf clothing, and your prices for custom garments is a great value. The craftsmanship and quality of the materials and fantastic. It's rare in today's world that things live up to old school expectations. I really appreciate your approach, care, and compassion for what you're doing.  Attached is a picture of me wearing one of your wonderful uniforms at Tiger Claw Elite 2018.
Thanks again,

Custom Made Shoes for Tai Chi

Finally our hand made custom measure Tai Chi shoes are once again available.

Thanks to all our customers who have provided feedback on our custom made Tai Chi shoes over the years. We have had many compliments (especially from people with hard to fit feet). We also receive constructive comments which help us improve the quality of our shoe, we are alway happy to receive feedback or any kind.

I recenlty visited our shoemaker to continue the process of improvement. We discussed sizing and fit and also looked at new design options. You will see in the shoe selection below we now have fully laced leather shoes, covered single lace and velcro closure. Leather shoes are availabe with or without decorative stitching. You may also wish to embelish your shoes with embroidered badges such as yin yang, Chinese calligraphy or your school loge (depending on complexity).

These Tai Chi shoes are perfect for competition, demonstration or the daily practice of Tai Chi.  The shoes are equally appropriate as Kung Fu shoes or, more generally, as martial arts shoes. The Tai chi shoes have a leather upper, a thin ayer of cellolite cushioning for comfort a low rug 3mm rubber sole. A pivot point option will be availabe very soon and I know this option will be extremely popular.

Our simple light cotton slipper is still availabe. Once again they are custom made to measure so we cannot compete on price with some of the very cheap shoes available, however we have kept the price as low as possible. 

Just a note regarding measuring your feet, it is important to measure accurately following the instructions below. If incorrect measurements are provided and we are required to manufacture replacement shoes, we will request a contribution to cover costs and freight.

STEP 1 - Measure your feet

BEFORE STARTING
You need –    
·      A tape measure or piece of string and ruler
·      2 pieces of paper slightly larger than you foot
·      A slim pen or pencil (no ergonomic padding etc.)
·      Wear the type of socks you will wear with you new Tai Chi shoes
 
FOR UNUSUAL FEET
If there is something unusual about your foot/feet please make comment on the form where you enter your measurements.
 
IF YOU WEAR AN ORTHOTIC
We have had great success fitting shoes for people that wear orthotics. Generally the best thing to do is measure with the orthotic (so the tape measure goes around your foot and the orthotic as well).
 
WHEN MEASURING
·      For all measurement, you MUST be standing with your weight evenly balanced between both feet.
 
·      You must measure both feet.
 
·      Please take care because if you do not measure properly your shoes will not fit.
 
·      Metric - measure to the mm (not to the closest cm)    Imperial – measure to the 1/8”

           
TAKING THE MEASUREMENTS REQUIRED
 
Length  -  
Stand on a piece of paper and draw around the top of your toes and around your heel. The pen or pencil that you use to measure MUST BE at a straight up and down angle (i.e. perpendicular / 90 degrees to the floor).
 
Next, measure the longest point on the page, from the big toe (or longest toe) to the heel and record that measurement on the piece of paper.
 
If you have a toe longer than your big toe please let us know (in the comment box on form below, we can widen the toe box).

Width -           
With the zero end of the tape measure facing upwards take the tape across, under and back around the other side of the foot at the widest point. You will be standing on the tape measure with your weight evenly balanced as it forms a circle around your foot.
Measure the full circumference of your foot (i.e. where the toes join the foot). This means measuring from the bunion joint on the big toe around the widest part of the foot encompassing the joint where the small toe joins the foot.

Arch/Height -

Measure the full circumference of your foot around the arch.
