Description

Our latest and greatest innovation in alternative footwear!   We have a great assortment of Furoshiki colors and styles available NOW!  We had our assortment arrive early - these make great Holiday Gifts!  Take it Everywhere ... for everywhere you go and everything you do, there's Furoshiki! 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.

Details

  • Inspiration from Japanese tradition of wrapping, carrying and holding objects in cloth.
  • Multi-fit with anatomic shape and Vibram grip offering a stretch upper to fit perfectly (Unisex sizing)
  • Easy on, easy off – take Furoshki anywhere. Before and after your activity, wrap and go!
  • Low density Vibram outsole for weight reduction.
  • Material Construction: 28% Elastane (Stretch Rubber / Lycra), 72% PA (polyamide & nylon)

Barefoot runner review

4

I have been a barefoot runner for over 5 years and only use a foot covering when running off road through forests and gravel paths. In the past I have used a Vibram New Balance minimus. Things I love about the Furoshiki - incredibly lightweight on my foot - easy to carry in my bag/car/hiking pack - they dry incredibly quickly - great protection for the soles of my feet from sticks and stones Things it took awhile to get used to - it felt unusual running down hill without a toe box, felt like I was going to slip past the front of the shoe - because it isn't a super tight wrap to my foot, the bottom of the shoe tends to lift slower/stick to wet muddy surfaces which feels like I'm leaving the heel behind when I lift my foot Things I would improve - the finishing inside the toe box area was quite rough and irritated the tips of my toes for awhile until they got used to it - the velcro pieces are very short. I wear a xs and would like to be able to wrap the sides tighter but I'm out of velcro. I think as the shoes natural stretch this will become even worse. Extending the velcro on the back of the shoes and on the sides would be an easy fix. Overall they are a great barefoot substitute, lightweight but giving me protection when I need it.

Fantastic quality and comfort!

I bought these for my daughter who is in a wheelchair. She is unable to walk and her feet are not typical, the sizes not exactly the same. I was unable to find any shoes which were comfortable and adjustable....until I found these amazing shoes! She gets compliments all the time and she loves them. I encourage more people with atypical feet to try these. This is her second pair and definitely will not be her last. I'm so thankful to find them.

Sizing not intuitive, but a great shoe!

I wear a US women's 10, and was nervous looking at the size chart because medium "felt right" but it technically listed a size 10 as needing a large. I decided to look at what would fit me in US mens sizes (8). An 8 in mens was clearly a medium...so thats what I decided to get. They fit perfectly, not too big and not too small. If your a woman, I'd consider looking at your corresponding size in mens to get a more accurate read on what the proper size is.

Wish I knew about theses shoes sooner

loving furoshiki "shoes" more like a sock with gripping power, I previously had a pair of the Five fingered Vibrams but out grew them after my pregnancy. Wish i knew about these when I was pregnant they would have been perfect for my swelling feet. Had my mom try these on and she loved them so we bought her a pair. fits true to size, no squishing of toes, no rubbing and my foot can actually work like a foot, i can feel what i am stepping on so i can properly balance myself.

Best. Footwear. Ever.

I got this shoe with high expectations, anything Vibram is going to be good, yet i was blown away by how amazing the shoe really was. I use it to workout and even though the shoe isn't sold as a high impact shoe the Furoshiki has a good grip and allows me to jump around in style!

After intense research bought these fir my daughter who has stage 3 kidney cancer and must have her extremely swollen legs and feet wrapped so shoes are impossible to fit until now!!! These are great, comfortable, and have peppy colors! Her medical team loves them! Everyone with lymphedema, sprained ankkes, casts etc should try them! Vibram you are missing your calling! These should be in every medical supply store and catalog! Bless you for this wonderfully innovative solution that can help so many!

I don't wear shoes...

I walk barefoot all the time. Well, nearly all the time. I have to wear something at the gym and when entering or leaving work. I gave these a try and discovered I am quite happy with the fit. I was interested in one comment of the soles being "too thin" and gave them a try across some gravel and unpaved terrain. You would have to be really tender footed to think the sole was thin ( I would have liked the Signa to have a thiner sole and they are the thinest made). They are nice to keep in the car when someone decides we need to go out to eat as well. They work with slacks or jeans.

Super comfortable, but . . .

The Furoshiki are super comfortable, but . . . the sole is too thin, and they need a solid toe covering. They are only fit for walking of smooth surfaces, not on anything like gravel. If you understand their limits, then they are excellent.

What wonderful footwear!

I have two pairs of toed shoes that I thought were like walking barefoot. But my new Furoshikis are far more comfortable and way easier to put on than I ever thought possible. I love my new footwear and will definitely get more.
