Japanese design company goyemon recently reinterpreted the traditional bamboo-woven sandals, implementing modern technology to increase the pair’s comfortability.

Invented in the 16th century, the setta is meant to be worn under poor weather conditions. Attached to the sole of the traditional footwear is a layer of leather which helps to keep the feet away from puddles and snow. Dubbed “Unda,” the modernized version features cushioned footbeds and midsole bubble units serving to buffer the strain from walking while logo-appliqued tags detail the heels.

Priced at ¥16,200 (approximately $147 USD), the goyemon designed “Unda” sandal is now available for purchase on Makuake’s website.
