Manufacture Full Description

At only 56-151 grams, this night-black minimal shoe is one of the lightest shoes in the world. This provides a completely new feeling of freedom – like having bare feet, yet protected. And its small size makes this minimalistic model the perfect companion for trips and wild adventures in the great outdoors.

The low-cut shoe made of a very special and innovative Japanese Stretch Washi fabric is 75% paper, temperature-regulating, breathable and quick-drying. Its 25% polyester content,makes the fabric more durable.

Thanks to the material’s anti-bacterial characteristics (a natural effect – nothing chemical!), the shoes are great for wearing without socks, too.

The paper and polyester are woven in such a way that the synthetic fibre lies on the outside – your skin itself only comes into contact with the paper – with the exception of the integrated microfibre padding at the heel. We recommend kneading the padding to soften it before the first wearing. Wearing your Tanukis in well makes them even more supple.

Elastic laces, available separately, make the shoes easier to put on.

Please note:
Each individual shoe is a unique, handcrafted.
You may therefore find slight irregularities in texture and color.
Extended use can lead to a kind of denim effect.
This minimal shoe is water-permeable, can be worn in water and dries very quickly

1 review for TANUKI YORU

  1. Jacob

    Received theses shoes about one week ago and I am really disappointed with the build quality. each shoe already has significant ~1cm tears on the ankle stitching, torn stitching on the tread, and current tread wear indicates overly soft material was used in construction.

    The fit and feel of the shoe is great however if your goal is to find a long lasting shoe at a quality price point this is not it. If your goal is to save the planet or reduce your carbon “shoe” print this also does not do the job as you would need several pairs (likely shipped across the world each time) to last as long as a quality synthetic barefoot shoe. Finally if your goal is to find a vegan or ethical barefoot shoe it is worth noting that most synthetic shoes contain no animal products and make similar ethical claims.

    Only if you have a very large shoe budget or don’t leave the house much can I really suggest these shoes.
