Japanese Flip-Flops, so called “Zori” in Japanese terms originated in the Heian Period (794-1192).
The traditional forms of zōri are seen when worn with other traditional clothing,and it was associated with the more formal kimono.
Like all Japanese sandals, zōri allow for free circulation of air around the feet, a feature that probably came about because of the humid climate that predominates throughout most of Japan. They are easily slipped on and off, which is important in a culture where shoes are constantly removed and put back on, and where tying shoelaces would be impractical in a tight kimono.
