We have all felt bad when dealing with ill-fitting shoes. In fact, it is very rare thing for a shoe to fit perfectly and comfortably the first time. That is why the Italian shoe maker Vibram decided to change all that. He invented the new Furoshiki Shoes, which wrap around the feet and guarantee comfort whatever your foot shape.
The shoe maker calls it the first ever “wrapping sole”, since the soles have wraps attached, which are then fastened with velcro. Furoshiki is the name of a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth used for transporting goods.
The new Furoshiki shoe has been invented by Japanese designer Masaya Hashimoto, who took the bright idea of taking the concept of Furoshiki and applying it to feet. The one-of-a-kind shoes can be bought from the Japanese Vibram store for about 140 USD, and comes in five colors.
