Vegan Tabi - Lilac



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.

I am the creature I wanted to be

I feel euphoric cryptid status. I run into walls cuz I just want to look at my wacky feet. Look out, world. People call it a camel toe but that's on them. No way. Not my toes. Flipper hooves. I'm ready for it all.

ripped within hours, still trying to return them days later

The fabric around the seam between the big toe and the rest of the toes ripped within a few hours (at most) of me breaking them in in my apartment. i emailed ilysm less than 24 hours after i received the shoes. it took two days to get a response requesting a return. i sent over pictures as requested, and still haven't gotten a response. i was so excited for these shoes, and i'm upset that they rip so easily and that the company is so unhelpful with returns. is it so hard to respond to people, or to just get an automated returns page?


Thank you for contacting us about your defective order. We're truly sorry this was your experience! We strive to create durable, quality products, and would like to assure you our seams should not rip. In the rare circumstance that our items are found defective, we always quickly facilitate a return or exchange, as we were happy to do in this case. While you contacted us on a weekend, we have customer service hours M-F and aim to respond to inquiries within one business day. We appreciate your feedback, and thank you for allowing us to make this right
