Japanese Geta Mules by Chiezo

Geta are a form of traditional Japanese footwear, similar to a sandal type design, with an elevated wooden base. Held onto the foot with a fabric thong, this allows the feet to feel free but fitted at the same time. Geta mules are customarily worn with traditional Japanese clothing such as kimono or yukata, though the current trend (in Japan and the west) shows they match well with Western clothing during the summer months.  Chiezo, a geta specialist in Fukuoka, Japan, successfully transformed the Japanese footwear from the traditional shoes into the modern and styled mules.  The Ergonomic designs and curves allows for “long wear”, free from stress and fatigue, benefiting those who may suffer from Hallux valgus.   Since these mules are hand made by skilled Japanese artisans, there is a 2-3 week wait from order to delivery. Option of sizes we offer are SS, S, M, L, LL, You will be contacted when your order has been made. In the case of sizes being out of stock, please allow two weeks extra weeks for dispatching from Japan.  If you have a look and touch Geta mules, please visit Chi Yu salon, London (Japanese oriental wellness centre clinic spa; 36 George St, London W1U 7DR  T. 020 7486 0304).  We also have a stall at Spitalfields Market (in the City)  from time to time.
