Gion is Kyoto's geisha district and one indispensable part of a geisha outfit is zori, the split-toe sandals that allegedly were the inspiration for the beach flip-flops seen all over the world. So it is fitting that from Gion also come these JoJo Flip-flops, a variation on the zori theme combining a traditional idea, modern materials and an ergonomic design that takes the concept to a whole new level.
Changing the material and shape of the center strap to make it less tiring and more comfortable, and then adding natural cork and SBR and EVA rubber (usually found in tires) for extra elasticity and durability, and less soreness, the creators of the JoJo Flip-flops have created something that will become your feet's new best friends for many years. They can adapt to various kinds of terrain while remaining as stylish as the geisha zori they were modeled after. This isn't something you just wear casually on the beach, but an exquisite piece of footwear that could only have come from Japan.
