You open your bag. Your clothes and book have soaked up the warmth and scent of the sun and the sea. Carefully you pick up one item after another, enjoying the vividness of the memory. Your Tanuki Sunas, with the color and lightness of sand, are the last things to appear. You quickly slip into them, and this time you enjoy the little stones and the sand that await your feet.

This featherweight low-cut shoe made of stretch Washi from the Japanese company Itoitex caresses your feet like a second skin. When you wear this minimal shoe, its innovative paper and polyester construction gives an incomparable feeling of lightness. As the Washi is breathable and water-permeable with anti-bacterial properties (natural, not chemical), Tanuki Suna (“sand”) is the perfect companion for wild summer adventures. The insole is there to protect bare feet and can be taken out to help the shoes dry more quickly.

Microfibre padding at the heel provides additional comfort. We recommend kneading the padding to soften it before the first wearing.

You can swap the silver-grey cotton laces for other colors or colored elastic laces as the mood takes you.

Please note:
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.

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.
