Pitti Uomo

Tradition and innovation at the Vibram booth of Pitti Uomo last edition. The Furoshiki shoes was introduced to the fashion system at the Florence fair, from 17th to 20th June . In the Japanese culture the term Furoshiki refers to the custom of wrapping, holding and carrying the most varied objects, bending and knotting a cloth that is transformed into a bag. Inspired by this Asiatic habit, Vibram has created the first wraparound outsole that fits comfortably on the foot thanks to special ergonomic bands that adhere to the ankle, ensuring maximum comfort and freedom of movement . The easy fit -guaranteed by the absence of strings- and the flexibility of this shoe, make it an extremely versatile footwear.
