Meri T011 Children's Indoor Flip-Flops

Modern version of traditional Japanese sandals for kids

In Japan, most children get to wear their first kimono when they are three or five and their parents take them to a local Shinto shrine for their Shichi-Go-San (7-5-3) ceremony. It is then that they first get to also wear zori sandals, the footwear that goes with traditional clothing in Japan. Zori is the Japanese version of the split-toe sandals called flip-flops in the West and are likewise casual, hence the Meri T011 Children's Indoor Flip-Flops using this name despite the fact that they are handmade in Tokyo!

What makes the Meri T011 Children's Indoor Flip-Flops different from the usual zori sandals is that they are made using knitting yarn: the whole sole is made up of a special 50% cotton, 50% polyester yarn that is as sturdy as it is beautiful. It isn't just about appearances and style, though: the uneven surface of the zori's sole massages your children's feet as they walk and helps improve their balance and posture! They come in a green color with an adjustable strap with a triangular pattern and in 21-22 cm (8.3-8.7") size.
