Sneakers with your kimono? No Problem!

Picture this: You’re in Japan and you’ve rented a beautiful kimono and it’s a blast walking around Kyoto, but … your feet hurt…

You could wear trainers with your kimono but it detracts from the overall look.

Enter the design collective “goyemon (ごゑもん)” who’ve come up with the rather innovative idea of combining Japanese footwear with modern trainers. These nifty shoes allow you to look effortlessly stylish in a traditional manner without hurting your feet! Oh, and did we mention they raised almost 2,000,000 JPY in crowdfunding? Check out their demo reel below!
