Impossibly Light Tyvek Paper Shoes

You’re not going to get very far as a traveler without a good pair of shoes. Or two, three, or four pairs – but each pair you pack will also add weight. Here’s the solution: the world’s lightest shoes, made from polyethylene fibers flashspun to look like paper – though don’t worry, they’re a lot more durable than that!

A pair of the Tyvek shoes weighs in at a scarcely believable five ounces, yet they’re comfortable and attractive, making them the ideal traveler’s companions. They’re available in men’s sizes 6 to 15 and women’s 2 to 12, so there’s no reason for anyone looking to travel light to be without a pair of these little wonders.

Available from Kickstarter for $68.

    That’s amazing! I read Tyvek and was like “Isn’t that the stuff new buildings are wrapped in??” Wow I guess it is! I can’t believe someone thought of this and for what they are they are pretty cute!!
