“Wrap-around” shoes anyone?

The Furoshiki Shoes are just brilliant: a combination of old and new in the very best sort of way.

These wrap-around sole footwear are designed by Masaya Hashimoto for Italian brand Vibram, inspired by the traditional Japanese furoshiki wrapping cloth that has been used as a bag for carrying things like clothing or a bento for centuries.

The durable, multi-size, “wrap-around sole” adapts perfectly to the foot with its special ergonomic bands that adhere to the ankle. This provides freedom to move, comfort, and plenty of style to boot!

There are five designs: jeans, aqua, black, violet, and pearls (orange). The color variations also come in a choice of three sizes.
