Comfortable and reliable hand-made sandals
Itochu is a long established sandal store founded in 1895. This store has a solid reputation for the quality of their original sandals, and is a favorite among kimono wearing customers. They also sell bags and traditional Japanese accessories. The reason why this store is favorite of discerning Kyoto customers is because of their careful consideration to detail that goes into making each sandal. One particular line of sandal is called ‘Sandal containing pure cotton’, which is individually hand-sewn with thick layers of cotton-insole for extra comfort and good fitting that reduces pressure on the feet. Sandals made using pure lacquer look attractive when welcoming guests at an entrance hall. Itochu can accommodate any order to meet customers’ preferences by adjusting the size and material. They also carry out repairs and alterations even for those who were given the sandals as a gift. For a very long time Itochu has always provided reliable sandals that are very comfortable to wear.
