The stones on the path tickle your feet. Your thoughts are elsewhere. A thin branch breaks, snapping into the silence. Now you’re fully present; the light of the low sun conjures up red shadows in front of your feet. Right and left, poppies in full bloom billow in the fields. The sky, the earth, everything glows. Laughing, you look at your feet and let your red Tanuki Keshis lead the way home.

You shouldn't stand in the way of light-footed little adventurers. And the deep red high-cut Tanuki Keshi (“poppy”) certainly doesn't do that. Quite the opposite. It protects little paws from injury, while the unique stretch properties of the new Washi fabric from the Japanese company Itiotex make the featherweight shoes feel like a second skin.

The insole and the microfibre padding at the heel provide wild paws with even more comfort, while protecting the shoe from abrasion at the same time. We recommend kneading the padding to soften it before the first wearing.

For even more individuality you can swap the silver-grey cotton laces for other colors or colored elastic laces.

Please note:
The color of the microfibre padding can rub off. We therefore recommend washing the shoes by hand in clear water before wearing them for the first time, and not wearing them with light-colored socks.
Due to the environmentally-friendly print on the insole, colors may rub off, too. We therefore recommend bearing that in mind when choosing which socks to wear.
Each individual shoe is a unique, handcrafted item. You may therefore find slight irregularities in texture and color.
Extensive wearing may create a kind of denim effect with a washed-out look.
This minimal shoe is water-permeable, can be worn in water and dries very quickly.

Upper:
Washi (75% paper, 25% polyester) - deep red

Insole:
Washi (75% paper, 25% polyester)

Removable insole:
80% EVA and 20% walnut shells

Synthetic rubber with approx. 50% recycled content, cork;
2.5 mm - dark brown

Additional information:
Contains no products of animal origin

Before wearing for the first time, we recommend rinsing the shoe with cold clear water and waterproofing the microfibre heel cushion to soften any discoloration of the microfibre.

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

If your little Wildling likes to drive ride-on toys, we recommend additional protection against scuffing.

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.
