Chinese footwear has different meanings due to the symbols on the sole. A dragon is the highest mascot while the combination of the pine and crane symbolizes good wishes for a long life. You will give these different soles depending on what message you would like to portray. This is very similar to shoes in the United States. If I were to give a pair of PF Flyers to someone they would thank me for the increased athletic ability. On the other hand, if I gave someone a pair of slippers they would be thanking me for increased comfort as they walked around their house. The main difference is that the Chinese sole has a much deeper meaning than the US shoe.
