- I'm working on making a pair of waraji out of raffia (easiest to
obtain for me). Now that I've finished one, I just had to try it out
to see what it feels like, so I walked just a little bit out around
my pool, on the concreate. The sole is so SOFT! It's very "cushioney"!
The only thing that I can see that would ever be a REAL problem
wearing these is if wearing tabi, the toes would wear out fairly
quick, and trying to walk on anything smooth (tile floor) would be
dangerous. Just thought I'd make a little post
