Zoori are traditional Japanese sandals, their quality is the result of know-how passed down for 150 years and which dates back to the Edo period.
Comfortable and elegant, they are the essential companion for any martial arts practitioner. Essential for getting from the changing rooms to the tatami, they are also perfectly suited for use in everyday life.
The Zoori can be worn in the West, heel resting entirely on the sole, but also in the traditional Japanese way, the heel then protruding widely at the back. This then requires adopting the traditional Japanese way of walking, the weight slightly on the front. This rather confusing approach at first will quickly become a very useful part of your martial practice. It will improve your movements and your posture.
