FAQ

What is a tabi?

The tabi is a style of footwear with a split toe that dates back to 15th Century Japan when it was originally designed as a split-toe cotton sock to be worn with geta, or wooden sandals. Our tabi is an eco-friendly take on a time-honored classic, with all the comfort and style of a modern shoe.

Do I have to wear socks with my tabi?

We designed our tabi sneakers so that they could be worn barefoot. Our insole and lining materials have anti-microbial properties, and the insole is removable so you can throw the shoe (minus insole) into the wash to freshen them up. For those of you that cannot go without socks, we make those!

How do I take care of my tabis?

It’s super easy - just throw 'em in the washing machine! We made sure that the insole is removable and hand washable as a first line of defense when it's time to clean your tabis. After you’ve removed your insole, place your whole shoe in the wash - treat it like a sweater. Wash on delicate cycle in cold water. We recommend a gentle detergent and tumble dry on low or air dry in a warm, sunny place.

What are your tabis made out of?

The vegan tabis are either knit from recycled water bottles or polyester and elastic. The silk tabis are made with a blend of recycled polyester, viscose, and silk yarn. All of our tabis are 3d-knit.

These shoes look so sick, the shipping was incredibly fast, and the packaging was next level. I love these shoes! The only downside is the big toe section is tight on my toe and my big toes start to hurt after awhile. The rest of my foot feels really comfortable though. I hope I just need to break them in.

I wish the soles were thinner and more flexible

These shoes are very comfortable but the fit is hard to explain. The bottom of the shoes are pretty thick and are too similar to a standard sneaker, which makes the sides where the sole connects to the fabric a weird transition. If I could make any change to these it would be to make the bottom thinner and less rigid. Since the rest of the shoe is stretchy fabric, having such a hard sole is awkward, if that makes sense.

Excellent item, probably should have sized up though. Also, please include cleaning instructions on such a fab pair of shoes. I used my Vans brand shoe shield to prime. Love them!
