impossibly light

January 09 2014
This team has designed what's potentially the lightest shoe on the planet. It's made of Tyvek paper, which is actually a sheet of polypropylene (plastic) fibers woven into a fabric-type material that's super strong, waterproof, and extremely lightweight. Each shoe released through the Kickstater campaign is numbered and only 2013 are available, starting at $50. Project currently trending toward $236,003.
Unbelievable Testing Laboratory has created Tyvek paper shoes weighing in at 150g. Support our Limited Edition Light Wing project.
