* Japanese shoes (Geta, Zori, Setta) must hold your foot when you walk or when you just stand up.
They must be tightened so that your foot does not move forward in the shoes.To tighten your sandals correctly, pull the "HANAO" (thong) before putting on your shoes for the first time, then check that your foot is well maintained. Note that in the case of Zori or Geta (for women), round model, the little toe may protrude outside.
GETA are traditional sandals made of very light wood. They promote a good posture of the body because they maintain the spine straight.
Our GETA are made in Japan, in MATSUNAGA CHO (HIROSHIMA), a city specialized in the manufacture of GETA since 1778.
TAKEGAWA ZORI are bamboo bark sandals hand-woven in YAMAGATA, Japan. Our Japanese supplier has been manufacturing TAKEGAWA ZORI for more than 100 years. These comfortable Japanese flip flops are often worn by martial arts masters.
These Zori IGUSA are traditional Japanese straw sandals made of two thick and comfortable straps that start from the front of the heel and go into the sole between the big toe and the second toe. The sole is made of Igusa, which is a plant used to make Tatami. Igusa plays a bactericidal and fungicidal role.
These cheap japanese thongs, light and practical, are very adapted to the Japanese climate because they let circulate the air around the feet. They are very popular among martial arts practitioners who use them during seminars to move from one tatami to another or to get to the locker room while keeping their feet clean.
