Cloth shoes are exquisitely made from cloth. Sturdy materials and no heels make them both comfortable and durable.
Many celebrities and leaders love the brand. Its registered trademark was handwritten by the famous writer Guo Moruo. And even Chairman Mao enjoyed wearing them.
I visited its branch near the Drum Tower. The shop assistant recommended the multilayer sole cloth shoes with flower embroidery, priced at RMB 200. She told me proudly, "the handmade multi-layer shoes have 81 inter-stitches , which cover every inch of the shoe. It took four to five days to finish that one pair." This kind of shoes cost from RMB 180 to RMB 300. Non- multilayered shoes would set you back RMB 80 to RMB 100.
Besides cloth shoes, Neiliansheng also sells leather shoes and monk's shoes. They cost around RMB 300. You may not haggle, and shop assistants, unfortunately, cannot speak English.
