Silk Tabi - Triple Black



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.


Returns or exchanges are accepted within 30 days of delivery in a like-new, unworn condition. Please try on your tabis indoors on smooth clean surfaces.

Still have no received

I’m looking forward to these arriving, but at this point I’m unsure if they ever will. I ordered these on Sep 3rd, it’s Sep 17th now and as far as UPS can tell me they haven’t even shipped.


Hi there! Thank you for alerting us regarding your order status. We're so sorry that your order has been delayed. We just reached out to you directly via email to sort this, and we're just as eager to get your tabis to you. Thank you for allowing us to make this right.

A step for me into tabi footwear!

I've been eyeing the tabi footwear trend and I thought that this was worth a shot. It's sososo comfortable for me to wear and I'm stupidly excited to create outfits with them! I was worried about lacking support (since I usually wear chunky boots and oxford heels), but it really doesn't make my feet feel flat. I will definitely be buying another pair!


We're so glad to hear that the tabis have delivered in comfort, style, AND support! We love you so much!

Sizing not consistent

My boss has a pair of the 10.5 in another color, I tried them on and they were a dream. But I ordered the black/black in the same size and they are too small, cannot wear them at all. But I noticed the next size up is a 14, which will be way too big. I generally wear 10.5-11 in men’s.


Thanks for reaching out to us about this. We're glad to hear the 10.5 was a dream fit for you, but sorry that the Triple Black tabis didn't fit well. We noticed this order was placed for size M10 rather than size10.5 which might explain the sizing mixup, but we still would love to work with you on how to get the tabis of your dream so we'll be reaching out to you via email to explore some solutions. Thanks again

Unbelievably Comfortable

I'd been looking for a slip on tabi style shoe for a while and these are like walking on clouds. There's even more arch support than I had expected, which is a nice surprise. The Triple Black styling is just how I like. So happy I didn't have to compromise style for comfort.


We love you so much! So glad you didn't have to compromise for comfort OR style!
