The geta (Japanese clogs) have a long history, going back to the Yayoi era. But they became widely popular only in the Edo era. During the reign of the Shogun Yoshimune, the "sanmaiba geta" became the footwear for prostitutes. Red high-heeled pokkuri (sandals) became a trend among young girls, and geta became an important fashion item. When Japanese women dressed mainly in kimono, geta craftsmen had a variety of geta in their shops.
