Contemporary take on the Japanese "Bensan" slip-on PVC sandals by Bench. Style D with double fringes in size 3L.
“Bensan” is a truncated word for benjyo-sandaru, literally meaning bathroom-sandals. They are typical indoor/outdoor slippers, widely used in the bathrooms of showa-era inns or bars; hospitals or schools. The common footwear quietly prizes in comfort, durability and anti-bacterial function.
Bench, a design brand that promotes goods made in Nara Prefecture of Japan, collaborated with Nishibe Chemical of Nara, a renowned maker of high quality toilet sandals with 40 years of history. Now made fashionably available in various styles and color palettes, the retro bathroom footwear has been elevated to walk on the runway.
Made in Japan.
