Japanese-Inspired Shoes That Literally Wrap Around Your Feet

Published 8 years ago

Furoshiki is the tradition of wrapping, holding, and carrying things in decorative pieces of cloth. Vibram Furoshiki, on the other hand, is their newest wrap-around shoe. Or, as they like to call it, the first wrap-around sole, since, technically, it’s a sole with wraps attached. They’re secured in place with Velcro patches, so putting the Furoshiki can hardly be any easier. They look comfy, too.

Vibram is also proud of their WaveGrip compound, which makes shoes lighter, as well as providing good grip on water sports surfaces. Of course, they’re even better for non-extreme sports use! The Furoshiki is a modern concept that’s much prettier than the footwraps used by certain armies (as late as 2013 in Russia), and which weren’t an actual shoe substitute.
