The concept for this type of footwear was derived from the Japanese custom of packaging items by wrapping them in cloth fabric. Furoshiki Shoes 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.
Sizing for Furoshiki Shoes is unisex, For Both Men and Women. and this product fits each foot differently. The tightness of the wrapping technology is a matter of personal preference.
- Inspiration from the Japanese tradition of wrapping, carrying, and holding objects in cloth.
- Multi-fit with anatomic shape and Furoshiki grip offering a stretch upper to fit perfectly (Unisex sizing).
- Light-Weight and Easy to Pack – take Furoshki anywhere. Before and after your activity, wrap and go!
- Low density outsole for weight reduction.
- Material Construction: 28% Elastane (Stretch Rubber / Lycra), 72% PA (polyamide & nylon).
I just want to say thank you for this amazing shoes! My girl got club feet and can’t find typical shoes to wear. She has got extra wide feet and I asked them about it, QUICK reply, FAST shipping, HASSEL free!!
I bought these for the gym, where I mostly lift free weights and do bodyweight exercise. Their flexible soles allow a deeper calf raise than my old, stiff running shoes. And their thinness makes it easier to position my feet for a side plank. Basically, if you’d have an easier time exercising barefoot but don’t want what other people might have tracked onto the gym floor, these are good shoes.

I finally got my Furoshiki shoes!! They look weird but they’re super comfortable and fit my weird shaped feet almost perfectly. I’m definitely going to order another pair in a color that isn’t so bright! If you have weirdly shaped feet or neurpathy or your feet swell I highly recommend them!

What a nice view! Let’s see if I can top my record of weirdness and actually wear them in public!

I absolutely love these shoes! It’s so convenient to fold them up & put them away. It feels as if you’re wearing socks in these shoes. So light & flexible! The only thing I can think of that could be a problem to others is that the soles are really thin.
