The Beauty of Traditional Geta Re-Interpreted
Young and talented shoe designer Yasuo Takamoto had always dreamed of using modern shoe-making techniques to re-interpret the beauty of traditional Geta which is one of the symbols of Japanese culture. In 2005, he took over his family’s well-established footwear business which founded by his father, Shigeo Takamoto, since 1968. Based on the original products and technology, Yasuo Takamoto continues to evolve and design a new series of ergonomic footwear inspired by traditional Geta, In 2007, his first inspiration of Regettacanoe was introduced to the market and in 2012 the company had the first attempt to challenge the global market and started from Korea, and expanded the distribution into Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia by 2014.
