Your GETA "Sandals"
Here's an important consideration when wearing your traditional Japanese geta :

Your geta "Sandals" should be slightly shorter than your actual shoe size, so that your heel extends from the back of the sandal 1~1.5cm.
According to Japanese custom, this will encourage you to shift your weight to the ball (front) of your foot, making walking in your sandals more comfortable.
Of course, judge for yourself. But for hundreds of years, the Japanese have adhered to this custom.
So just give it a try...Please!!

"GETA" is a Japanese sandals.
It is said that 90 percent of ordinary households used to wear GETA in the 1955s.
You can see that it was an indispensable part of daily life.

The demand for GETA has greatly decreased.
However, not only when wearing Japanese clothes, but also when a new style of fitting GETA with jeans was established, it became popular again.
Demand from the younger generation and overseas is increasing.
While cherishing the traditions of Japanese, we also consider compatibility with Western styles.
The world of GETA, which is producing new products.
