With the Tanuki Niji, you can show your true colors and still roam through the summer in style. The natural white Tanuki made of stretch washi features an extra little highlight: On the left shoe, you’ll find an embroidered rainbow flag.

This minimal shoe is ultra-lightweight and is a real treat for your feet thanks to its unique washi fabric, which is made of 75% paper. Especially in summer, we enjoy the benefits of its antibacterial properties, its air permeability, and the way it dries so quickly.

The cream cotton laces can be exchanged for other laces to suit your preference.

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 Wildling shoes outdoors in cool, wet conditions, you’ll find the right washi replacement sole here.

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

does not contain materials of animal origin, water-permeable

This minimal shoe is water-permeable. Combined with the "Washi" insole, it can also be worn in water and dries in no time. Consequently, waterproofing is not necessary.

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 and 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.
