Industry standard sole manufacturer Vibram has unveiled a bizarre new footwear contraption. The Furoshiki shoe takes inspiration from the Japanese tradition of wrapping objects in cloth, and consists of a gripped sole unit which wraps around the foot with stretchy straps, making an innovative, adaptable shoe that Vibram promises will provide "comfort in every environment." The shoe sports an anatomically-designer sole which promises to accommodate all foot shapes without sacrificing grip or comfort, and was originally designed for use in the water sports.

Head to the Furoshiki Shoes website for more information and the chance to cop - although be warned, the website is mainly in Japanese.
