Japanese-Inspired Sneakers Wrap Around Your Feet For An Absolute Perfect Fit

Furoshiki Shoes has turned traditional Japanese wrapping cloth, used for transporting goods, into shoes. Furoshiki shoes, were created by Japanese designer Masaya Hashimoto, and have no laces and instead wrap around the foot, fastening with velcro.

They’re called the first ever “wrapping sole.” These novel shoes come in at least five colors, can be bought from the Japanese Vibram store for about $140 USD.
