Salomon uses its quicklace system giving the all terrain running shoes a tight fit. As the last thing you want is to stumble over your shoelaces when you’re doing your round. And besides the practicality of the trail running shoes, they are really funky and available in many colours.

The Cyber London by Asics is a good alternative for the Lunarfly by Nike. Both have a big Velcro closure that seals the shoe and gives you the comfort of a personal sneaker fit.

It’s a well appraised sport shoe with 4.5 stars on Amazon and lots of user reviews.

The Adidas Performance Trainer is also an option. These trainers have the same grand gesture as the Nike shoes. In the end it all depends on personal taste.

That’s why it’s so great that you have such a huge choice of sneakers. In the end you definitely find something that represents who you are and what you feel comfortable with.

The Furoshiki sneakers by Vibram are inspired by the Japanese art of wrapping.  The Japanese are masters in wrapping up packages and who doesn’t know the art of origami. Folding paper into beautiful animals, flowers and other natural forms. Vibram had a good look at the Japanese tradition. The word Furoshiki (風呂敷) stands for a Japanese way of wrapping cloth. It is traditionally used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods.

The tradition goes back to AD 750 when the Japanese had the practice of bundling up their cloths when going to a public bath house. As to prevent a mix-up of other bathers’ cloth people started to wrap their own cloths in a personal way. Eventually the Furoshiki was adopted and served as a means of wrapping and decorating gifts.
