Lightweight NINJA Shoes by UT.Lab

View all 15 Photos

New from the UT.Lab, THE NINJA shoe follows in the path of the paper-thin Light Wings. With an upper made entirely of microfiber, THE NINJA is even more lightweight than its Tyvek predecessor and more minimalist in both design and production. The soft, stretchy fabric increases the shoes’ comfort, durability, and style, while slimming down the design to a weight of less than 260 grams.

The travel-ready footwear is water-resistant and compresses almost flat inside a bag. Available in four staple colors, the shoes are priced at $55 on Kickstarter, where, as of this writing, the UT.Lab has raised almost ten times the amount of their initial funding goal. Each pair of shoes will ship in a reusable Tyvek bag.
