Vibram Furoshiki Shoe

At first glance, this is an utterly alien looking piece of technology that only gets more fascinating the deeper you go. Using a method called Furoshiki, which is using cloth to wrap and carry things, it’s a new shoe from Vibram made out nothing but a sole and a couple pieces of fabric to create the ultimate minimalist shoe. Named after the very art form that birthed its idea, the Vibram Furoshiki walks among us.

Easily adjustable to multiple foot sizes, Vibram has brought a lot of technology to bear on these shoes with their WaveGrip compound which provides a light weight while not sacrificing grip or comfort. Meant for both extreme water sports as well as casual, everyday wear, the Furoshiki can break down flat or fold up like an origami swan to create a breathable, go-anywhere piece of footwear that’s ready for action or comfortable enough for lounging.

Purchase: $60+
