Product information

Lightweight and breathable
Kokoro is among the Tanuki models that are exceptionally lightweight and breathable. 

The shoe that likes water
This Wildling minimal shoe is water permeable and quick drying. Using a (replaceable) Washi insole, you can also wear it in water.

Washi paper from Japan
Washi is composed of 75% paper. Its antibacterial properties make it a wonderfully light companion, especially in the summer.


Washi (75% paper, 25% polyester) – boysenberry

100% certified organically grown cotton

Hemp-flax fleece (50% hemp, 50% flax) [removable]

60% synthetic rubber from approximately 33% recycled material, 25% silica, 15% recycled cork – caramel


True to size as measured with the Fitkit.

Video tutorials explaining how to use the Fitkit and determine the correct fit are available on the Wildling Shoes YouTube channel.


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.

You can find shoe care products for your Wildling shoes here.

Video tutorials explaining how to waterproof, cleaning and care, and how to insert the elastic laces are available on the Wildling Shoes YouTube channel.

If your little Wildling loves ride-on toys or balance bikes, we recommend additional protection against abrasion.
