Multi-Purpose Minimalist Sneakers

The Vibram line has come a long way since the brand was launched in 2005. Originally developed to help yacht racers stay stable on slippery decks without compromising the barefoot experience, the Vibram line now provides minimalist shoes for fitness, weight lifting running, water sports, yoga, trekking, traveling and more.

vibram furoshiki wrap shoesNamed after a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that’s used for bundling or gift-wrapping, the Furoshiki is one of the many shoes within from Vibram line you can wear anywhere or for any purpose. From traveling to weightlifting to water sports, the Furoshiki provides comfort, grip, and support in any environment or on any surface.

The bottom sole of the Furoshiki barefoot shoes come complete with Vibram’s signature WaveGrip, a lightweight and non-marking rubber compound that’s designed to help your feet grip stainless steel, smooth gel coat, wet wood, or any surface that’s either been gently kissed or harangued by water. In other words, you will not fall down unless the Earth tips over sideways.

The stretch outsole of the Furoshiki is also designed to keep you upright and shod. Designed with a hook and loop enclosure, this multipurpose minimalist sneaker wraps neatly and securely around the foot and fastens on both sides of the foot with velcro. The ability to adjust the fasteners to your foot or whatever tightness you prefer means that the sizing of this shoe is unique to the wearer and can accommodate any foot type.

New and Improved Barefoot Shoes

As a result of this change, it should be easier for everyone to get a more accurate and comfortable fit with the Furoshiki.

The shoe is also now available in six new colors. Women who are interested in purchasing the Furoshiki can choose from colors like China Jeans, Dark Jeans, Beet Red, and Black. And gents, you have your choice of either Black, Dark Jeans, Desert Script, or Olive.
