The Tanuki is one of the lightest shoes in the world, and that's not the only reason it can claim the minimal-shoe label. Its small packing size and understated design make it a perfect companion, whatever you’re doing: whether at home, on your travels, in the office, in town or in nature.

This forest-green lowcut is made of stretch washi from the Japanese company Itoi. Washi is an innovative fabric that consists of 75% paper and 25% polyester. Thanks to the special weave, your feet only come into contact with the paper part.

This Tanuki is great for wearing barefoot. Stretch washi has an antibacterial effect without the need for chemicals. You can also remove the insole for airing.

As soon as your Tanukis have been worn in, they gently embrace your feet without getting too tight. Before you wear your Tanukis for the first time, we recommend that you knead the heel pads a little bit to soften them.

If you want to give your Tanukis a more individual look, you can of course switch the petrol-colored flat cotton laces for other elastic or cotton laces.

Please note:
Each individual shoe is a handmade unique specimen, its upper material consists of a natural material. You may therefore find slight irregularities in texture and color.
This shoe is no longer being produced. There is only a limited stock.

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 amazingly thin washi fabric. If you are between sizes, we recommend choosing the smaller of the two.
