Vibram, the company that brought you the peculiar Five Finger shoes that looked like gloves for your toes, is back with a new shoe that’s even more alien. Furoshiki, so named for the traditional Japanese cloth wrapping technique, is essentially the sole of a shoe with two flexible fins that you fold over your feet and attach at the heel. The millimeters thick sole makes it extremely lightweight. The myriad of color options make it functionally stylish. The fact that it accommodates different size feet means you don’t have to worry about daily sock choices, swollen feet or blisters. But the best part about these shoes is the fact that they’re ridiculously easy to travel with and will take up almost zero space in your suitcase.
