Iroh's sandal was a piece of footwear worn by Iroh that seemed to favor comfort over beauty. It was evident that this sandal was worn frequently by Iroh, as his foot's stench was practically embedded into it.
When Iroh was captured by an earthbender captain and his men, he cunningly left his sandal on the road, enabling Zuko to easily track down his uncle. This proved successful, as without Zuko's intervention, Iroh's hands would have been crushed by the captain.
Just before Sozin's Comet returned, Zuko used this in a similar situation when he and Team Avatar needed to find Iroh once more. Zuko produced this sandal as a smell sample for June's shirshu, Nyla, in order to find his uncle. After the team found Iroh, Zuko remarked that it was not that hard to find him as he had a very strong scent.
Iroh's sandal was beige in color. The design was very simple, basically consisting of a sole and two straps that went between the toes. The shoe gave off a very strong odor of Iroh's foot.
- Iroh's sandals bear a close resemblance to Chinese straw sandals.
