themightygnome asked: Hello! I'd just like to say i bought a pair of okobo's online, they're not exactly the same as the unpolished wooden one, but more similar to the black lacquered ones, they're about 10.5cm! And they're quite difficult to walk it, I can't walk on a flat surface without being scared! My respect for Maiko's and Geiko's just went up another 100 levels! Hahaha!
Oh yes! and now imagine how hard is to walk in them wearing heavy kimono! ;)
