Setta, Zori & Tabi

Setta, Zori & Tabi

The Japanese Zori/Setta are flat sandals topped with two straps passing between the big and second toe and can be worn with or without Tabi (socks with toes separated). The zori consisted of either tatami (rice straw) or "Igusa" (rods) on the upper sole, and leather for the bottom flange. Nowadays the bottom flange is generally made ​​of rubber. Useful for martial artists to move outside the Tatami, Zori are also perfectly suitable for use in everyday life.

Tabi literally means "foot bag" it is therefore a sock. The particularity of Tabi is having the big toe separated from the other toes. Tabi are generally used as socks with Geta, Zori or Setta but are also worn on their own in certain martial arts to protect the feet. Always white in formal situations, there are nowadays many variations, such as black Tabi in some martial arts.
