Yes, just like the wrap of a spring roll, this shoe cradles your foot after being wound around it, using a method called Furoshiki. With nothing but a sole and a few pieces of cloth, it brings minimalism to a whole new level.
Of course the utilitarian aspects of it are pretty important. As a shoe, it's both lightweight and durable. The sole has enough traction for water sports but the style also folds down for easy carrying. For those of you who like to wear as little as possible, socks are a non-factor for these kicks.
