For most Japanese, the idea that the split-toe zori sandals would be worn with anything except a kimono seems weird: this particular type of footwear has been part of Japanese tradition since the days of the samurai and even today, they are the shoes to wear when you put on a kimono or the hakama trousers usually associated with traditional weddings or the martial arts. So for the Japanese and non-Japanese alike, the Meri Anne A103 Indoor Flip-Flops are a unique item, despite being made in the heart of the old part of Tokyo.
The Meri Anne A103 Indoor Flip-Flops are a complete makeover of the classical zori: instead of leather, their sole is made of knitting yarn tied together, so walking in them feels like walking on the beach! Another feature is the positioning of the toe separator: instead of closer to the middle of the sole, the Meri Anne A103 has it nearer the big toe and that makes the sole of your feet and your toes spread and form a better arch. These amazing contemporary zori are available in a beautiful pink color and in three sizes!
