🖖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
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: 25% recycled polyester, 36% polyester, 20% viscose, 14% spandex, 5% silk
Interior Lining: biodegradable UMORFIL Beauty Fiber, a collagen-infused yarn suitable for next to skin wear, even for sensitive skin!
Insole: Felted Australian merino wool top for next-to-skin softness. 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: Matte 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 wish the material hugged the ankle more, it’s a little ill fitting….ON ME. Ended up returning. Would buy again if they made a new version or something.
Hi there, we’re sorry that the tabis weren’t a good fit for you. We appreciate the feedback, the tabis conform to everybody’s feet but we understand that the fit wasn’t quite what you expected particularly at the ankle. We have new styles in the works and hopefully we will be able to find the perfect tabi for you in the future.
These shoes are so comfortable and interesting. I had to exchange for a smaller size and the whole process went very smoothly!
From the packaging, style, quality, comfort to brand ethic, everything is spot on.
We love you so much! So happy that you enjoy
I absolutely love my tabis! I typically only buy minimalist shoes or something specifically designed with a large toe box so as not to smash my toes together, and these are the perfect shoe for someone with those preferences. Not to mention much more stylish than most minimal shoes!! Very comfortable and wearble out of the box. I've already walked miles in them with no rubbing, smashing, blisters, etc. A beautiful marriage of style and function. Thank you ILYSM!
We love you so much! So glad that the tabis were such a good fit for you and that they fit so well with your own aesthetic!
I love my new shoes. They are so comfortable, and unusual looking. I am recommending them to everyone! Will buy more pairs, they are my new go to comfy shoe. Wearing them at work in the office right now :-)
Heck yeah! We love you so much, comfort and unusualness: that's our specialty!
