WABISABI+

HONSHU CO.LTD(Tokyo)

WABISABI+ dress room sandals can be worn both indoors and outdoors. The sandals look as if they have a “hanao,” which is a thong knotted in “zori” Japanese traditional footwear, but it is not actually a hanao, but designed for ease of use so that people who are not used to wear zori can also easily wear it. The sole is company’s unique “platform sole” which the front and back have been raised. The women’s version has a 6cm-heel that makes your legs appear beautiful. The shape that follows the arch adapts to the foot the moment you put them on, maintaining a comfortable and natural balance while walking. In addition, the convex finger pillow and the slope of the tip of the sole provide a smooth and comfortable walking experience by utilizing the finger force that is applied during walking.
The WABISABI+ dress turban is a headdress that employs the same designs used for the thongs. Originally a traditional style of Middle Eastern countries, turbans now attract a lot of attention as a must-have fashion item. The company also has a YouTube video tutorial to show how to tie a WABISABI+ dress turban. At first glance, these two items may not seem to have any connection, but both express Japan’s unique sense of beauty and help you enjoy an elegant lifestyle in everyday scenes.
