Japanese-Inspired Shoes That Wrap Around Your Feet
Store bought shoes rarely fit perfectly, and bespoke options are too expensive for many. Italian shoe maker Vibram, more commonly known for its military footwear, has come up with a solution to this problem with its Furoshiki Shoes. Furoshiki (風呂敷) are a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth used for transporting goods. Furoshiki shoes, created by Japanese designer Masaya Hashimoto, have no laces and instead wrap around the foot–hence the name–fastening with velcro.
