Answer to some FAQs

The original purpose since I started my blog in early 2008 is to not about selling but to spread Feiyue/Warrior stories to the world. However, as you might know, I receive lots of concerns from people who also want to wholesale the shoes and inquire me about some trading information. I tried to offer my help to as many people as possible, and I did made some successsful deals with poeple from overseas. But since Feiyue/Warrior is only my interest and I'm still a full-time student with personal job to do, I was not able to give my response to all of you in time. Following are some FAQ from readers, and I think it's good to put some of my answers here for your information.

Q: Can you tell me the contact of Feiyue/Warrior's manufacturer ?

A:There were quite a lot of people inquired about the traditional Feiyue and Warrior sneakers and want to get shoes from the company directly, assuming that a direct deal would mean a more reasonable price. In fact it is not.
Take Warrior shoe company for example, if someone from abroad contact them, they will offered you a much higher export price (they sell higher price abroad than home, eg 30% or higher than domestic price). For Feiyue, they don't even have a company website.... Usually the best way I recommend (as I helped some buyers from Canada, United states) is to buy the shoes from local sales channels and ship them abroad. That's the most cost-saving method.

Q:I am looking for manufacturer who can make these shoes in high quality but at a good cost, and I worry if local sales channel is able to provide large quantity. A:Let me expain this way. Feiyue's original manufacturer is very difficult to find, in fact I tried to get in contact with them about a year ago for several times (someone from Canada and the US already contact me for this reason already). But the feedback from the company was negative: Their factory seldom deal directly overseas sales (the management team are some about-to retire people, and don't even have professional people to develop sales channel). There was even no one can speak good English. Most of the time, they took order directly from other local trading companies or footwear distributors. So you see, many of you want to deal directly with Feiyue company, but I can ensure you, I've tried this way, but it's very difficult.
So the best possible way is to do overseas trading with trading companies or footwear distributors who already have partnership with Feiyue, and that's how I helped my friend from Canada and US get Feiyue. About the quantities, they make production based on the requirement of order, so quantity won't be a problem, but prices and production time need further negotiation.

Other concerns pls email to me, if I don't answer please do not hesitate to resend me the email, don't be afraid to bother...I would try my best to help if you really want it !!!

Some photos of the basketball game with Kyle

Some photos of the basketball game today with Kyle and his friends.
Kyle used to teach parkour and Kungfu in Canada (their training center). Last year I helped him to ship hundred of Feiyue shoes to Canada for students in his training center. At that time I had no previous experience in overseas shipment and we did encounter some problems. Luckily we were able to solve it all and made the deal finally.
Now Kyle has moved to Shanghai and planned to live here. He's a martial art trainer and also work as stunt actor!

Shout out to our program-Shanghai Summer Intensive Program (SSIP)

Over the last few months, it was pleased to see many of you contacted me and showed interest for the sneakers. Some of you even endeavored to spread the shoes around the world by actions. I'm truthfully glad to have worked and became friends with you all.

This time, I'd like to introduce you to a fresh new project I have been working on with my fellow entrepreneurs recently- the Shanghai Summer Intensive Program(SSIP).
With the World Expo 2010 about to come this summer in Shanghai, we tailor-make this program for those who want to join the fabulous event.
For more, please visit our site, or feel free to contact me via my personal email steward.du[at]

About the program
Shanghai Summer Intensive Program (SSIP) was conceptualized and made a reality inspired by the upcoming 2010 Shanghai EXPO and the need from international students to understand China. The program began as an academic project 3 years ago, then became a campus club that as assisted international students in Shanghai to get better adaptable in the new environment.

The main organizers of the program are people from various backgrounds, including young entrepreneur Eric Hu (who founded a service firm for soon-to-graduate students during college), student leader Yangdong Zhang (who's the chairman of the student association in Tongji University) and Xiaodong Du (who has much experience in English education and also works in different instructive projects on topics about China).

We're passionate about what we have been doing in promoting exchange for students around the world. We have proved it can work, and we've scaling up now. SSIP is still relatively small, but if it grows as rapidly as we hope, it could begin to do a whole lot of good. On this note, we wish all of our participants a fantastic and relaxing summer stay in China.

Interview with Chestnut, a girl wears Warrior sneakers

We recently caught up with Chestnut (a versatile girl love art&design) to discuss warrior sneakers. I recognized warrior sneakers in some of her photo and I am sure it would be interesting to have a small interview with her here for all fans.

1. Can you briefly introduce yourself ?

I’m an ordinary girl in college, China. I like graphic design, film post-production and photography. That's all my interests but I am pretty sure I am still amateur of all aspect :)

2. I saw your photos with warror sneakers,that's awesome! When was the first time you notice Warriors sneakers and why did you choose them in your photos?

I wore Warriors(Huili-回力) sneakers when I was a kid and I'm sure everybody of our age has a big impression on the shoes. In fact I didn't have much idea about when it came into popularity again. I like its style and think they look good on young people so bought a pair for my own. Another reason add to my affection to Warriors sneakers may be my best friend- he's also called Huili (回力) and yes, he wears Huili too :)

In recent year, many Classical Chinese brands like Feiyue, sailor's striped shirt(海魂衫) and warriors are attracting more and more public/media attention, even create craze in Europe. I wasn't too much surprised at that time, I believe trend is a cyclical process and these brands are getting recognition they deserve. But knowing his/her own style is important for an individual, you don't have to follow others by grabbing yourself warriors and Feiyue, in order not to be left outdated.

3. You have your dress shop online and part-time model, could you share your advice on the dress style of warriors sneakers?
Warriors were originally designed as sport shoes, yet not only for sports and physical exercise purpose. It's important to have one's own style, and Warriors sneakers have chemistry on different people, thus I think it's special for any individual!

4. If there's any reader come across this post and find this interesting, how can they contact you?
Sure, welcome to visit my blog I don’t mean to glorify any fashion hit but I hope everyone is confident with our own brands, they rock !

Thanks a lot
It's a pleasure!
