Black Paulownia Zori & Bag
Zori are usually quite narrow and the toe post is in the centre of the sole, not offset to the side, which means the outer edge of the foot hangs slightly over the side of the shoe.
They are worn with tabi (split toe socks) which also help the foot slide in, making them easier to put on.
They do not come in western world shoe sizes, they are sized in length (cm). It is not unusual for them to be worn with the heel extending slightly beyond the back of the shoe. Measure your foot flat on the floor, with your weight on it, and compare with the given shoe measurement.
