Traditional Japanese footwear providing comfort to your feet
Gion Naito has been a favorite of people who love kimono (traditional Japanese clothing) in Kyoto. They offer made-to-order traditional Japanese footwear called zori. The 5th generation owner, Seiji Naito says, “I can tell what kind person he/she is by only looking at their feet.” Not only do they carefully measure all parts of the foot, but they also ask which is your dominant foot and your weight. “The more I speak with my customer, the more I can understand him/her.” The strap is made with fine cotton and Naito hits it with a wooden hammer to achieve the perfect softness to fit smoothly on the customer’s foot. The complete footwear fit on your feet as comfortably as if you have worn it for many years. Also, Naito can give you a lot of ideas and suggestions how to wear kimono and zori with his deep knowledge and appreciation of traditional clothing.
