View Full Version : What Kind of Shoes/Sandals Should I Wear with This?

06-16-2012, 11:36 PM
So, I've been looking around on the internet for just random costume-type things and I came across this and I have absolutely fallen in love with it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kimono-Purple-Dress-Rock-Cosplay-Costum-Made-HanFu-/250869936307?pt=US_CSA_WC_Dresses&hash=item3a690370b3

While I do plan on getting this, I can't figure out what type of shoes/sandals to wear with something like this. Please help?

That's pretty well a Chinese hanfu; women usually wore simple, slipper-like shoes with it, usually in either black or with embroidered brocades, depending on the wearer. Or had bound feet, but obviously that's not possible to recreate.:P

Yeah, I actually forgot about the fact that they had bound feet. I have a pair of black slipper shoes that might work just as well, or at least I hope, haha.

Yeah, at the very least you'd want a very basic, simple/soft shoe. Similar to something like a ballet slipper or gymnastic shoe.

Okay. Thanks so much for the info! :D
