Waterproof, Durable Wraparound Shoes
You probably have a pair of lace ups and a pair of slip-ons, but what about a pair of wraparounds?
It may be hard to believe that this is a shoe, but that’s because this is unlike any shoe you’ve ever seen before. Designed by the Italian company Vibram, this Japanese-inspired Furoshiki shoe is made of a hard sole with a flexible wrapping on either side. Simply wrap the two ends around your feet and bam! – You’ve got a comfortable, flexible, adaptable shoe.
Furoshiki are a type of cloth commonly used to wrap and transport things in Japan. Why not wrap the ultimate transportation method – the foot – in the same way? Unlike a store-bought shoe, these puppies form perfectly to your feet.
Made of 28% Elastane (Stretch Rubber / Lycra), 72% PA (polyamide & nylon) and available in Eurpoean shoe sizes 36-47, these shoes come in three styles: Furoshiki, Furoshiki Shearling Boot Mid, and Furoshiki Shearling Boot High.
They also come in a variety of colors, from elegant black to a more daring shiny pink variety. Each pair is also equipped with hook and loop closures to ensure the perfect fit.
They’re so durable and weatherproof, you can even wear them in the wintertime!
