The concept for this type of footwear was derived from the Japanese custom of packaging items by wrapping them in cloth fabric. Furoshiki is the only sole on the market that wraps around the entire foot. Because the upper is constructed with stretch fabric, it will anatomically fit nicely on any foot type and the hook and loop closure system allows for a quick, easy fit.
Powered by our revolutionary Vibram soling technology, Furoshiki provides comfort in any environment! It also packs nicely for traveling and each pair comes equipped with its very own traveling case. The ultimate travel footwear companion, offering protection, grip and comfort. Sizing for Furoshiki is unisex and this product fits each foot differently. The tightness of the wrapping technology is a matter of personal preference. Please use the sizing information as a general guide in determing your size.
Upper and Adjustment
The Vibram Furoshiki has an anatomical last that adapts to all types of feet. They are very easy to put on thanks to their wrap-around sole and the elastic fabric that ensures a quick and secure fit, while leaving you with a pleasant feeling of freedom of movement. In this new model, specific sizes are used for women and men.
The upper part is made of a mixture of polyamide-nylon and elastane, the latter standing out with 28%. The fabric composition ensures perfect fit, centred on the midfoot. This adjustment, common in many minimalist shoes, allows for the shoe to be released at the front, so as not to compress the toes and not interfere with their movements.
The 4 mm thick Vibram rubber sole has a polygon pattern. The minimalist Vibram Furoshiki shoes are very versatile and are perfect for your free time, whether you are walking around the city, working out at the gym, crossing the airport or relaxing on the beach. They represent a new turning point in the footwear sector: shoes for everyday use, with a unique and original style, equipped with the Vibram technology that has been synonymous with quality for over 75 years.
Size of the Vibram Furoshiki
The sizing of the Vibram Furoshiki originated many opinions, so Vibram has changed it. In the new model the size is more intuitive, it has gone from the classification S, M, L, most used in clothes, to the usual 40, 41, 42 .... Also, as in all the models of our catalog, you can use the Calibrator that you will find next to the size selector. You simply have to measure the foot and enter the data in centimeters in said section. More info on the sizing here.
On the other hand, sizing for Furoshiki is entirely unique. The tightness of the wrapping technology is a matter of personal preference. Please use the sizing information as a general guide in determing your size.
Weight (size 42): 220 grams
