Dark stained and lacquered traditional Japanese footwear. Features a cloth strap with a traditional Japanese motif on the cotton covering, and fine black velvet lining over any part that is in direct contact with the foot. The wooden block base, also called the "dai" is in an more rounded, oval shape, traditionally interpreted as more feminine. The dai and the teeth are carved from a single piece of wood. Notice the continuous grain visible throughout the carefully stained out sole. The in sole is lacquer painted in shiny black for a clean, perfectly smooth, resilient finish, and has the "Visvim" insignia hand-carved beneath the heel. These Geta have a small natural leather covering under the toe tip, secured with silver tone nails for durability. The base of the shoe shows the traditional knotting, affixing the "Hanao" or strap to the base of the shoe. The toe divider is affixed with a special gold tone metal piece, covering and protecting the knot beneath. The rear teeth of the shoes are reinforced with small wooden pegs. 100% Wood Made in Japan

The first Mona Moore was a shoe store in Montreal, 2002-2010. After the family move to Los Angeles, they opened on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice Beach in 2009. Then in October of 2017 they moved to their permanent home and flagship store at 208 Lincoln Boulevard, Venice CA. Behind the white painted cinder blocks and metal roll down doors is a little piece of fashion paradise.
Considerably respected and rapidly devoured by the fashion world, Tokyo’s Visvim has earned a cult status (and it’s really big cult). Designer Hiroki Nakamura founded the brand back in 2002, inspired by the world over, with a soft spot for traditional Native American clothing. Its iconic moccasin sneaker is testament to just that, which you’ve probably seen on your local hypebeast.
