Vibram Furoshiki

The concept of FUROSHIKI, the Wrapping Sole by Vibram, is unique in the field of footwear. This is the first shoe to take the inspiration and name from the Japanese art of Furoshiki and effectively wrap the foot. This provides a personalised fit and exceptional comfort for all shapes and sizes of feet.

Thanks to the state of the art production techniques, Vibram has revolutionised footwear design whose ergonomic uppers, made in Eurojersey sensitive fabrics, are a direct extension of the sole. The sole itself is made from Vibram XS CITY rubber compound to ensure durability and grip on urban surfaces, even when wet.

Award Winning

In 2018, the Vibram Furoshiki The Wrapping Sole won the most prestigious award in the world of design, the Compasso d’Oro. This followed a string of other successes including the Compasso d’Oro International Award on the theme of “Sports - Performance and Innovation”, the “Grand Award” of the Design for Asia Awards competition 2017 in Hong Kong, and the Design Intelligence Award in the Excellence category at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou.

Vibram have now introduced an exciting range of Furoshiki Wrap Around Autumn/Winter boots to complement the popular Spring/Summer range of Furoshiki Wrapping Sole shoes.
