The Unique Vibram Furoshiki Can Change Everything

Sometimes different is good. It will just be up to the larger sneaker community to decide if the new Vibram Furoshiki fits that criteria. Inspired by the traditional Japanese wrapping cloth used for a range of purposes, this Masaya Hashimoto-designed footwear option stretches to fit and flex to almost all foot types due to structure of the sole and the wrapping nature of the minimalist fabric that hugs your foot. Meant for everyday wear, off-beat trekking, and even water sports, the Furoshiki can break down flat, fold up, or wrap to fit any style or function open to a shoe of this type. Although it doesn't have the signature five-toe design, Vibram's proprietary rubber compound called WaveGrip is in place underfoot as to not sacrifice any grip or comfort even with the lightweight design.
