Outline

Slip-on sneakers that can be put on comfortable with bare feet for those who want to put on shoes without wearing socks even in a muggy season. By using a new material "Washi cloth (Fabric made from Japanese paper yarn)" which is superior in hygroscopicity, quick-drying and deodorizing properties to nearly all parts which directly touch the skin, we realized a shoe that is not sticky and hard to heat up even when we wear barefoot. In order to maximize the functionality of Washi cloth, we have considered about the structure of the shoes and parts of the details, and we also feature unprecedented breathability and lightness.
