Geta for contemporary lifestyle

現代のための下駄

The Geta of Mizutori has a unique feature in that they fit the left and right foot differently. The shape of traditional Geta is flat and it is difficult to continue to wear the Geta for many hours. However, Mizutori Geta is made to fit each foot shape and we can be worn for many hours. The wooden base is made carefully by hand and the strap is designed in-house. Traditionally, geta strap is a string, but the strap of Mizutori geta has a cushion padding in the fabric to allow for foot comfort.

Geta of Mizutori continue to evolve to meet the contemporary lifestyle.

水鳥の下駄は、左右の足にフィットする形状が特徴である。これまでの下駄は足裏部分がフラットで、靴に比べると長時間履くことが難しかったが、この下駄は、右足・左足それぞれの型に合わせて作られており、長時間履くことができる。手彫りで丁寧に掘られた木地に、独自のデザインの鼻緒。伝統的な下駄の鼻緒は紐であるが、水鳥の鼻緒は、布の中にクッション性の素材を入れることで、快適な履き心地を実現した。水鳥の下駄は、現代のライフスタイルに合わせ、形を変えて、進化を続けている。
