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.
