Wrap Around Super Light Running Shoes
Take it Everywhere ... for everywhere you go and everything you do, there's Furoshiki! The concept for this type of footwear was derived from the Japanese custom of packaging items by wrapping them in cloth fabric. Furoshiki is the only sole on the market that wraps around the entire foot. Because the upper is constructed with stretch fabric, it will anatomically fit nicely on any foot type and the hook and loop closure system allows for a quick, easy fit. Powered by revolutionary Vibram soling technology, Furoshiki provides comfort in any environment! It also packs nicely for traveling and each pair comes equipped with its very own traveling case. The ultimate travel footwear companion, offering protection, grip and comfort. Sizing for Furoshiki is unisex and this product fits each foot differently. The tightness of the wrapping technology is a matter of personal preference. Please use the sizing information as a general guide in determining your size.

Common Questions & Concerns:
Although it is perfectly fine for your toes to graze the end of the toe pockets, make sure that each toe can extend fully. If any of your toes are scrunched or curled due to lack of space, you need to go up in size. Alternately, if you wiggle your toes and they slip out of the toe pockets, you need to go down in size. Ultimately, you should find a pair that you are comfortable in and that allow you to perform activities freely and naturally as if you are wearing no shoes at all!
Q: I am a male can I wear women sizes? (Or, otherwise?)
Yes, we have made this recommendation many times with great success. The best fit for your individual needs is determined by your foot measurement in inches. The only difference between male and female is that male lasts (shoe forms) are slightly wider and longer than the female models. If your foot is smaller than the smallest male size, certainly try on a female size based on your measurement in inches you may have much better luck! Alternately, if you are a woman and your foot is bigger than the largest female size, we encourage you to try one of our mens models.
