草履 - Zori (Japanese sandals)
Japanese sandals called zori are worn with formal Japanese kimonos unlike the wooden clogs called geta that are worn with yukatas. Like geta, the sandals have thongs that are put between the big toe and the other toes. Japanese sandals are worn with white Japanese socks called tabi while wooden clogs are worn without socks. Various materials ranging from expensive ox hide to relatively cheap vinyl are used for Japanese sandals. There are also deluxe beautifully embroidered sandals. Long ago sandals were made of straw, rush, and bamboo. They were called waraji and were used as daily footwear.
