🖖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: 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'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!
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
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!
They're great, but I only wear black shoes, all black, and they're out of my size so I guess I'll never buy anything from this company ever again, but only because they've dedicated themselves to never make any more of the one product I /would/ buy from them regularly for the rest of my life. No the metal and shadow ones are not good enough. It's a shame deserving this 1 star review, product is great, scummy company cares more about exploiting scarcity bias than repeat sales and building customer loyalty.
Thank you for your feedback and interest in our shoes. We are so glad to hear you love the product and so sorry your size is sold out of the style of tabis you'd like to purchase. Scarcity bias is not a part of our business model -- we'd love to have every size available at all times, but as a small business our resources are limited, and we’re unable to invest in having products always in stock at the moment. For this reason, our products are released in limited edition manufacturing runs, however, we're frequently releasing new styles, which often include updates and revisions on previously sold styles, such as Triple Black. We appreciate you understanding and encourage you to keep an eye on our socials and email lists for updates on new/similar styles dropping in future. Building customer loyalty is very important to us, and we want to make sure you get the all black shoe of your dreams — we’ll be reaching out to you via e-mail to explore some solutions! Thanks again
