• A pair of contemporary, lacquered, paulownia wood ama geta, with tsumagake (removable toe covers). Ama geta have protective toe covers for wear in rain and snow, these ones also have good, grippy robber soles, for safer walking on snowy ground
  • Traditional hanao (thong toe straps).
  • See last picture for how geta are traditionally worn, with foot hanging off back of heel. You can choose whether to wear them fully on the sole or that traditionals way.
  • Made and bought in Japan
  • Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only


Condition:
Excellent - unused


Measurements:

Length 23 cm, so to fit to about 25.5cm foot.

The Japanese wear geta with the heel hanging 2-3cm off the back, to centre gravity of the body, though this is less essential with some modern style geta, which have a heel and don't have the narrow teeth (ha) under the sole. The type with two teeth are worn this way (see diagram below this pair of geta’s photos). Measure your foot when standing (or squatting), with your weight pressing down on it.

  • The Japanese wear geta with the heel hanging 2-3cm off the back, to centre gravity of the body, though this is less essential with some modern style geta, which have a heel and don't have the narrow teeth under the sole. The type with two teeth are worn this way (see diagram above this pair of geta’s photos). Measure your foot when standing (or squatting), with your weight pressing down on it, then compare with sole length of geta. Note that a, for example, 27cm sole is suitable for a 30cm foot when worn the traditional way with the heel slightly hanging off the back of the sole.
