The fit for these is snug. They will adapt to your feet in time.

  2. I has some similar shoes to the VGEBY TaiChi Kung Fu Shoes you have there when I was practicing Tae kwon do many years ago and I agree that these types of shoes are very comfortable and great for the job. You just need to get a pair that your feet will feel comfortable in and soon you will not be able to do without them. For many years i was not using any shoes but when i tried them out I never looked back.
