Formal Ball kimono/yukata sandals

Post by moekou » Sun Nov 29, 2015 8:24 pm

Hi, for kimonos and yukatas, what sort of footwear are considered formal and what aren't? Kimonos usually are worn with tabi and traditional flip-flop-like sandals.

Although the formal ball page is not yet ready for 2016, according to the dress code from last year:
Those dressed in formal Japanese clothing may wear zori sandals with tabi socks for footwear. Geta sandals are difficult to dance in and thus not recommended. All other forms of sandals are not suitable for this event.
So I would make sure that your sandals are in fact, traditional style zori and not actually flip-flops.
