At only 56-151 grams, this night-black minimal shoe is one of the lightest shoes in the world. This provides a completely new feeling of freedom – like having bare feet, yet protected. And its small size makes this minimalistic model the perfect companion for trips and wild adventures in the great outdoors.

The low-cut shoe made of a very special and innovative Japanese Stretch Washi fabric is 75% paper, temperature-regulating, breathable and quick-drying. Its 25% polyester content,makes the fabric more durable.

Thanks to the material’s anti-bacterial characteristics (a natural effect – nothing chemical!), the shoes are great for wearing without socks, too.

The paper and polyester are woven in such a way that the synthetic fibre lies on the outside – your skin itself only comes into contact with the paper – with the exception of the integrated microfibre padding at the heel. We recommend kneading the padding to soften it before the first wearing. Wearing your Tanukis in well makes them even more supple.

Elastic laces, available separately, make the shoes easier to put on.

Please note:
Each individual shoe is a unique, handcrafted.
You may therefore find slight irregularities in texture and color.
Extended use can lead to a kind of denim effect.
This minimal shoe is water-permeable, can be worn in water and dries very quickly

This minimal shoe is water-permeable, can be worn in water and dries very quickly. You therefore don't need to treat it with waterproofing spray.

Dirty shoes are best brushed carefully when dry or can be washed gently by hand. Not suitable for machine washing.

The insole is also washable and should be taken out for drying. It protects wild paws and the inside of the sole from wear and tear.

If this minimal shoe has been with you on any saltwater adventures, be sure to rinse it thoroughly afterwards with normal water.

A little bigger than usual due to the extraordinarily thin washi fabric. If you are between sizes, we recommend choosing the smaller of the two.
