Vibram Furoshiki East Traveler Mid Fall Boot *CLEARANCE = FINAL SALE*
Priced to sell! Just a few pairs left.
The Eastern Traveler is the perfect boot for Fall! Featuring the Furoshiki wrapping style closure inspired by the Japanese scarf tie used to carry small parcels. You can roll the top down to expose the fashionable lining or leave it up for coziness.
The Gray model has a colourful, patterned cotton lining.
The Black model has fuzzy lining fabric with a soft wooly feeling.
Weather readiness: this boot is better suited for sunny Fall days due to the ventilation pinholes above the toe area. Stepping in small puddles should be fine, and the soles are designed to grip wet surfaces to meet the needs of a city lifestyle.
Upper Material: Eco Suede
Lining: Eco Fur / Cotton Fabric
Outsole: XS City
Minimal Shoe Report Card:
Not advertised as Zero Drop but we believe they are at least very close.
Toe box width: Like all Vibram Furoshikis, these are suited for average to narrow width feet.
Flexibility: The soles have less flexibility than the classic Furoshiki shoes, but more than a standard shoe.
Barefoot feel: The sole allows for minimal sensory input when you step on an object.
Overall: a great choice for folks with narrower feet who want to move into zero drop footwear that looks stylish. Since they have less flexibility and less feedback from the ground they could also be a good choice for folks whose feet are starting out very sensitive as you build up experience with ground textures at your own pace.
Sizing info: the fuzzy lining (Black model only) takes up more room so you may want to order a size up if you get the Black Furoshiki Eastern Traveler. For both models, you might go a size up if planning to wear them with very thick socks.
