1. zōri; traditional Japanese thronged sandals
Wikipedia definition
2. Zōriare flat and thonged Japanese sandals made of rice straw or other plant fibers, cloth, lacquered wood, leather, rubber, or—increasingly—synthetic materials. Zōri are quite similar to flip-flops, which first appeared in New Zealand and the United States sometime around World War II as rubber imitations of the wooden thong sandals long worn in Japan. The traditional forms of zōri are seen when worn with other traditional clothing; modern forms are fairly common, especially in summer.
