These Japanese Wrapping Cloth-inspired Shoes are Worn by Wrapping Around Your Feet

Shoe sizing is a complicated business. Traditionally, sizing is based the length and to some extend, width, which seems to work fine so far, but what shoe size did not and will not take into consideration is the shape of the foot above the sole. With the Furoshiki Shoes, however, it will be a definite fit as long you get the right sole size, because you will be wrapping your foot as opposed to slipping your feet into the shoes. Inspired by traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that was used to hold and carry clothes and stuff when folks of the olden days travel (hence the name), Furoshiki Shoes is the brainchild of Japanese designer Masaya Hashimoto and leverages on the traction and reliability of Vibram soles, but with outstretching bands/fabric instead of laces that wraps around your feet to ensures the shoes conform to your feet and not the other way round.

Bombas Socks – An Engineered Socks

socks. an item that we hardly give a damn about, but the guys behind the Bombas Socks are so serious about this seemingly minute everyday wear that we think they deserves to be called socks engineers. beyond its colorful and attractive styling lies a series of “sock engineering” that you will never look at another pair of socks the same again. the guys are calling the Bombas Socks the game-changing socks and looking at the specs and features (yes. it has both), there’s no reason to doubt that statement. crafted from long staple peruvian pima cotton which let you feel cool in the heat of the summer and warm in the cold of the winter, this particular material is said to wick moisture better over traditional cotton which translates to a comfy wear throughout the day, anytime of the year.
