🖖Why ILYSM Tabi Sneakers?
Not like the others
Inspired by traditional Japanese Tabi socks and designed by alumni of Yeezy and Proenza Schouler, the ILYSM Tabi is the most comfortable statement shoe you’ve ever met. Its distinctive split-toe design is great for socially distancing your big toes from your other toes, and for setting yourself apart from the crowd.
Better for your feet
Unlike regular shoes, which squeeze your toes and constrain your feet, the Tabi Sneakers split-toe design allows your feet and toes to move freely as nature intended them to, with better mobility, balance and comfort.
A conscious choice
Thoughtful consumption - The ILYSM Tabi is constructed using a 3D knitting technology that saves 30% of waste material over traditional sneaker upper construction. Whenever is possible, we use recycled, low impact, and naturally derived materials.
Supports emerging artists
ILYSM puts our community and artists first. Our mission is to create and sell sustainable and alternative fashion (for statement makers and comfort lovers alike) that give us the means to support artists through collaboration and mutual aid. As a response to the COVID-19 crisis, we began offering a weekly $500 grant for artists in financial need. We funded the grants by diverting budgets from our daily operations, and we continued the grant for 14 weeks.
Upper: 80% polyester, 20% elastic
Interior Lining: Tencel lyocell, from renewable wood pulp via sustainable processes
Insole: A layer of comfortable, renewable cork over two layers of recycled foam: a base layer of high-density foam for support, and a midlayer of springy foam for cushioning in a low-drop design.
Sole: Opaque solid black rubber for range of motion, traction, durability and comfort.
The Tabi runs true to size.
The Tabi runs true to size. Please order true to size. If you size down, your foot will likely "fit" due to the upper's ability to stretch, but you may experience rubbing at the heel.

I haven’t taken them off....
And you never have to!
I had my eyes on the silk tabis forever but they were always sold out. So once the preorder for these shoes came out I said **** it and got em. They are my first pair of tabi shoes and I love them so much. They elevate my outfits and have this understated edge to them. I have pretty non existent arches but walking around in these feel so natural and supportive. I like that the sole is made of cork, cus it allows me to wear them comfortably sans-socks when I run out of my tabi socks.
These were my first Tabis (Since then I've ordered 4 more)! Maybe I'm just attracted to shiny things, but when I saw these available for pre-order, I knew I had to ****** them up. These tabis were my gateway into ILYSM! I was hesitant on the sizing, but I trusted their recommendation and went with my true to size, W9. They fit like a glove (sock?) Lol. :) I love the packaging, the tyty cards, and the ankle cushions they provide. The color on these is perfect! I love the subtle black, and the metallic look. These literally go with anything. This definitely won't be my last pair.
I may have ordered a half size too big, but they are still really comfortable with socks. I love the look so much!
Best shoe purchase ever...very comfy and edgy. I love it.
