This pair of wooden geta, or traditional Japanese footwear, features dark green cloth straps. The straps have a tan pattern of hexagons with four dots inside. These geta are quite high and would have protected the wearer from rain or snow.
Geta are a form of traditional Japanese footwear that resembles both clogs and flip-flops. They are a kind of sandal with an elevated wooden base held onto the foot with a fabric thong to keep the foot well above the ground. They are worn with traditional Japanese clothing such as kimono or yukata, and also with Western clothing during the summer. Sometimes geta are worn in rain or snow to keep the feet dry due to their extra height compared to other footwear, such as zori (flat, thonged footwear).
