Have you heard of winter sandals? The idea was born in Japan – a country where sandals are far more than just shoes. They’re a centuries-old tradition: an inextricable part of a kimono outfit; the footgear of Buddhist monks on their spiritual journeys; and a symbol of freedom to go wherever you like. But come November, the temperature in Tokyo often falls below 10°C. Enter the SUBU, a hybrid between sandals and sneakers – ultra warm and easy to slip on. In fact, the name is a shortened version of the Japanese “sutto haku būtsu”, which means slip-on shoes.
