ust saw these on Etsy at the beginning of the month, and I've been meaning to pass the news along to you. It's a seller in Russia named Bakezori who crafts the wooden Japanese sandal known as the geta in a range of sizes for men and women. Getting a pair for myself is on my To Do list. If you beat me to it, let me know what you think of Bakezori's craftsmanship and quality.
The two tooth geta can be found on Etsy here.
Note that the more rounded style with the thicker hanao rope is the one he crafts for women.
The more squared off style is for men. Be sure to specify.
And for the more adventurous among you wood-soled shoe lovers, there's the one tooth geta.
It looks as though it might be a challenge to walk in, but from what I've read and from the videos I've watched, they're quite functional for getting around. Standing still for long periods is tricky. But the motion of moving forward with these on your feet is not a problem.
Note that Bakezori is open to custom orders. I asked if he could make the two toothed model an inch or so higher, and he was totally comfortable with that. As it says on his Etsy page,
Geta of every size and modification may be ordered! Do not hesitate to ask the master.
