The KAMO-GUTSU shoe brand is designed in Belgium, produced in Italy and inspired by

the casual/sports shoes of the 20’s and 30’s.

The brand name derives from the ancient Japanese footwear to play kemari,

the seventh century primal version of today’s football (or soccer).

​For the members of the ancient Japanese upper class, kemari was regarded

as a refined game of skill and grace. 

​The original shoe looked like the beak of a duck, hence the name of our brand:

​kamo = duck

gutsu = shoe

TOGETHER: duck shoe

​Kemari is kept alive till today thanks to the Emperor and the Kemari Pre
