🖖Why ILYSM Tabi Sneaker?
Inspired by traditional Japanese Tabi socks and designed by a former Yeezy and Proenza Schouler designer, 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.
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.
Thoughtful consumption - Our Vegan Tabi is knit from recycled water bottles and we use 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.
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.
