Vibram Furoshiki Oslo Waterproof Wrap Boots

The now-famous Vibram rubber outsoles that grace the bottom of countless hiking boots were developed with a life-saving purpose in 1937. Inventor Vitale Bramani lost six friends on the Italian Alps whose deaths were partially blamed on inadequate footwear — the tragedy inspired him to launch the first rubber lug soles. Today, his innovative gift to the outdoor world is no less desirable, as evidenced by Vibram’s new Furoshiki Oslo Waterproof Wrap Boots.

These newly updated winter essentials are made to keep you standing dry and steady on wet and icy surfaces, something that’s accomplished by the fully gusseted upper and a sole that features Vibram’s most advanced cold weather gripping system called Acritic Grip. The unique wrap entry and closure system is designed to provide the warmth of a winter boot without any additional bulk, with a minimal look that’s reminiscent of a ninja’s shoe. The wrap closure system works by stepping into the base of the shoe and then wrapping the shoe’s material around your leg and foot for a snug and waterproof fit.
