Furoshiki cloth has been used to wrap just about everything in Japan since the Edo period, but never for any footwear uses. Vibram has taken this traditional concept and applied it to an innovative sole design, resulting in a bespoke fit that easily adapts to any surface. The unique Furoshiki shoes utilize the Italian shoemaker’s 75 years of experience to guarantee unmatched comfort and durability through an anatomic sole construction and a stretchy upper material. Available in five different colorways, purchase this innovative piece of footwear at select retailers for $140 USD. Head over to the company’s website for more information.
