下駄【Geta (wooden clogs)】

Geta are worn without any socks. Usually people put on geta when they wear yukatas (informal summer kimonos). Each wooden clog is supported by two pieces that are attached under the sole and there is a thong on the top of the sole. This thong goes between the big toe and the other toes just like with thong type sandals. When you wear wooden clogs without socks, your feet do not get sweaty and the wood feels cool and comfortable. Wooden clogs are popular with many people for this reason. They are usually worn in the summer season. Geta made from paulownia wood are generally considered to be the highest quality geta available.

下駄は浴衣を着たときに素足のまま履く木製の履物です。底の裏側に2本の歯があり、鼻緒を足の親指と人差し指の間に差し入れて履きます。素足のままで履けるため足元が涼しく、木の感触が素足に心地良く感じられます。このため、夏の履物として人気があり、多くの人に愛用されています。桐でできたものが高級品とされています。
