UT Labs was founded by Token Hu, a native of Anhui province who moved to Shanghai and worked for Frog Design. Whilst there, his colleagues encouraged him to experiment with new materials, and the LIGHT WING shoes were born. LIGHT WING shoes are made from Tyvek paper, and weigh less than 150g per shoe.

More on their story and shoes on their website here.
