Novelty apparel has seen a surge in the past few years, creating the perfect environment for these cat-shaped sandals to capture the hearts of feline lovers everywhere.

The shoes, which originated in Japan are an adorable twist on Geta sandals - popular footwear that sits somewhere between a flip flop and a clog and are typically made with a wooden sole. These particularly playful shoes feature the silhouette of a cat, and are available in a variety of colors, allowing users to express their carefree nature with every step they take.

The cat-shaped sandals are dubbed the 'Nyarageta' - a word derived from 'Nya' which means 'Meow,' 'Nara,' the city the shoes were made in and, naturally, geta, to pay homage to the shoe's inspiration.

These novelty shoes combine comfort and silliness, to put a playful twist on traditional apparel.
