Geta are a style of traditional Japanese wooden sandal that, although initially designed for work, now are produced in over 200 different styles. Okobo (or Pokkuri: an onomatopoeia for the sound one’s steps make while they are being worn) are a style sandal with a thick wooden base and a fabric thong. The top surface sometimes features straw work in order to create a better grip for the foot while walking. Only women wear Okobo, and even then, they are rarely worn except for by Maiko ?? (apprentice Geisha). Sometimes, a bell is placed inside them so that a nice sound is produced whilst the wearer is in motion. They are typically worn with tabi (traditional Japanese socks). This pair appears to have two thick ha (teeth), perhaps for stylistic, aesthetic or weight reasons.
