Why We Love It

Setta are comfortable traditional Japanese sandals woven from soft fibers, with cushioned protective soles. They make a great alternative to stiff wooden geta, and can be worn with any Japanese kimono, or perfect as flip-flop for your fashion wardrobe.

Sango Town in Nara Prefecture, is a craft hub with over a century of expertise in handcrafting traditional Japanese sandals. The innovative Design Setta Sango have taken this artisanal inheritance and created a style of Japanese sandal both chic and comfortable for everyday wear.

Unlike setta or geta you will find elsewhere, these original sandals have a thickly padded and rounded straps. The jet black of the straps is reflected in the name shikkoku, meaning lacquer black, and is enhanced by intricate embroidery representing the constellations in the night sky.

Instead of the flat base of most Japanese sandals, these soles are woven in a gently curved shape. The ergonomically designed padded base cushions your feet and allows you to wear them in comfort all day long. The thick hardwearing outer sole means that these sandals are suitable for any surface, indoors or outdoors, wet or dry. The embroidery may feel a little hard at first, but will get softer the more you wear them.

Why Choose Setta Sandals from Design Setta Sango?

Design Setta Sango revolutionizes traditional Japanese sandals by merging artisanal comfort with joyful style. Originating from Sango Town in Nara Prefecture, a hub of sandal-making expertise for over a century, they draw on generations of craftsmanship from partner Wasabiya, a renowned geta strap maker. Their limited collection, recognized by the Wonder 500 project, showcases innovative, handcrafted sandals. Featuring wide, soft cotton straps and padded, breathable insoles, these sandals offer all-day comfort. Unique designs by Japanese textile artists and vintage kimono fabrics make them perfect for both jeans and kimono, blending tradition with contemporary fashion.

Shikkoku Setta sandals

I was hesitant to spend this much on what I call flip-flops, but took the chance. They are beautiful. I will be careful when wearing them. I wear a women’s size 8 and purchased a Large. Fit great, feel great, and definitely look great. Highly recommend.
