A sassy leprechaun waits at the end of the rainbow, guarding his greatest treasure. The trail leading there cuts straight through the tallest summer grass, passing babbling brooks that want to gush right out of the rain barrel and spill straight onto our feet. But we’re as swift as the wind, speeding ahead towards the leprechaun and the rainbow.

Have you ever walked on a rainbow? The colorful sole of this Tanuki model serves as its visual highlight, and thanks to the special Washi material made by Itoitex in Japan – composed of 75% paper and 25% polyester – this featherweight minimal shoe hugs nimble feet to cozy perfection while still giving them room to breathe.

Thanks to this material’s innovative processing, skin only comes into contact with the paper, while the polyester on the outside of the Tanuki makes the shoe resistant to abrasion. What’s more, this unique fabric from Japan regulates in-shoe temperature and boasts naturally antibacterial properties. 

The microfiber heel cushion provides protection for sensitive paws. We recommend kneading it gently prior to first-time wear to make sure it’s supple and pliable. 

The cream colored elastic laces can be swapped out for other laces any time for an added pop of color. 

Please note:
To ensure the best possible comfort, the Tanuki models are now equipped with an insole made of temperature- and moisture-balancing hemp-flax fleece. If you want to wear the water-permeable, quick-drying Wildlings outdoors in cool, wet conditions, you’ll find the right washi replacement sole here

Every shoe is a handmade one of a kind. The structure and coloration may exhibit minor irregularities.

Upper / edging:

stretch washi (75% paper, 25% polyester) – off-white

100% certified organically grown cotton

hemp-flax fleece (50% hemp, 50% flax) [removable]

80% synthetic rubber from 50% recycled material, 20% cork; 2.5mm – pastel rainbow

Further information:
does not contain materials of animal origin, water permeable, limited edition

This minimal shoe is water permeable and, in combination with the insole “Washi”, can even be worn in water and will dry in no time at all. This means that there is no need for waterproofing.

If the shoes get soiled, it’s best to brush them clean gently when they’re dry or wash them gently by hand. Not machine washable.

The insole is also washable and should be removed after use for proper drying and airing out. It protects wild paws as well as the inner sole from wear and tear.

If this minimal shoe walks through salt water with you, we recommend rinsing it well with fresh water afterwards.

If your little Wildling loves ride-on toys or balance bikes, we recommend additional protection against abrasion.
