Furoshiki Shoes Wrap Around Your Feet

We really haven’t had any major upgrade to shoe tech in a long time. There have been some ergonomic improvements, but mostly our shoes are how they have always been. They look the same, feel the same and we wear them in the same way. Furoshiki Shoes could change how you look at footwear.

First off, they look like the most comfortable shoes you could ever buy. They wrap around your feet like bandages, so they conform to your foot’s shape instead of forcing your feet to conform to the shoe.

They feature elastic velcro straps that you pull around and tie down. Once all that is done, they look similar in shapt to a normal shoe.

They were created by Japanese designer Masaya Hashimoto, and Italian company Vibram is selling them. They seem like the kind of thing that could really catch on too. They cost around $140, and come in several different colors and styles.
