Are you ready for a shoe that’s as light as a feather and as natural as a second skin? The first ankle-high Tanuki Keshi (“poppy”) in proud deep red is ready and waiting to take you through the wild world.

The unrivalled, supple stretch Washi from the Japanese company Itoitex protects your feet and lets them breathe, while you feel the elements right up close. In this shoe you can go through rivers and forests or along beaches, but it will also look good in the urban jungles of this world.

The insole and the microfibre padding at the heel provide your feet 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.

You can swap the dark red cotton laces for other colors or colored elastic laces to make the look your own.

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. 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.
This shoe is no longer being produced. There is only a limited stock.

Washi (75% paper, 25% polyester)

Removable insole:
80% EVA and 20% walnut shells

Synthetic rubber with approx. 50% recycled content, cork;
3.5 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.

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.
