Zori by Kuroda Shoten
Just For You, From Countless Samples
I have been to Takamatsu, Kagawa. That place is, as you know, very famous for Sanuki Udon. But I found the prefecture also produced special zori.
Zori is necessary when you wear kimono or yukata. And it is said zori is good for building up your physique and preventing hallux valgus. Somehow some are afraid the thongs scrub toes. Surely, it is easily imagined that cheap straps are so bad to our feet anyway.
It means you have to find someone who blows away that worry before you get zori. The one is Kuroda Shoten which has been established in Takamatsu, Kagawa since 1916. Visiting there, you will be closer to meeting your precious zori.
Entering the footwear shop, you will first be surprised at their lineup which overwhelms others. Kuroda Shoten is always abundant in the thongs and the materials. Within the mountain of treasure, you can find Obi Retainers made of leftovers of the hanao.
I believe you will be satisfied feeling like you come to a tailor or a dressmaker, because you can test to your heart content. Exactly, it is a joy on fashion.
Lately, with the third president Kuroda Shogenori and his wife Megumi at the head of the list, they have uniquely developed My Sole Geta that’s for walking and for everyday use. They say they are very busy with the publicity activities overseas like New York, Singapore and so on.
Wanting zori only for you, you are welcome to Kuroda Shoten.
