Metal Tabi - Galaxy



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.

Good if you like them

I ordered a pair of shoes and socks (6 pairs of socks were about $50). I did not like them (both shoes and socks were tight on the ankle cutting off my circulation and leaving a mark, and the shoes didn't fit my food at the big toe) so I started a return. The process to get a return label took about 3 days, and it shows a refund for the shoes only. The socks were all packaged separately (each pair separate), so even if they accepted 5 of the 6 back, that would be ok. But they're not refunding them at all even though like I said I only opened 1 of the 6 (how am I supposed to try it on without opening it?). So I guess I'm getting a refund, minus $8 processing fee and minus $50 for socks I don't like and won't wear. So I guess if they fit you and you keep them that's great, but if you don't it sucks for you. $58 out of pocket to try on and return. Not ok.


Hi Anna! We're sorry to hear that your tabis weren't a great fit, it sounds like you might've gotten the wrong size! While we're always glad to accept returns and exchanges on tabis that don't fit, for hygienic reasons, our socks are final sale. We just sent you an email to try and make this right, however! Let us know if there's anything else we can assist you with in the meantime, we're always glad to help

Pretty good! Looks better than it feels

Love the look of the shoe, tried wearing them sockless and was only comfortable for a short walk. Wouldn’t be an issue but it seems like the style is supposed to be comfortable sockless so that was a bit disappointing. But love the look and will just invest in tabi socks

Not for everyone, but def for me!

I love my first pair of Tabis. they seem really high quality with just the right balance of support and weight i was worried that i might not like the split toe feeling, but it’s easy to get used to

Great shoes.

I love them. So very comfy and they form to my feet. I love the style and the feeling. They go well with all my outfits. One of the best things I have ever spent money on.

Exquisitely Gorgeous Colorway!

I currently own 14 pairs of the iLYSM Tabi, these shoes are the only shoes I wear and will ever wear, I used to be a leather boots kinda guy but everything I wore hurt my feet, until, I meet these genuinely comfortable exotic speakers! I don't enjoy lases either so these shoes are everything my feet was craving for. They are orthopedic too, my feet no longer hurt! The dark disco colorway is exquisitely sexy! Go ahead, buy a pair or 10! I am actively only using the camel shadow, shadow stripe & cloud stripe and have already machine washed them 2 times and they are still fresh. There is only one thing I don't enjoy, the sole traps tiny rocks, dirt, mud & grass buurs stickers, however, it is quite therapeutic to sit and take everything out... yes I wash the soles every now and again. I haven't used my other pairs because I want to purchase sole protectors so I can keep the soles clean and clear of stains, the semi transparent soles do absorb stains. Still ♡♡♡♡♡ heart rating as they are the best shoes for my feet! Thank you iLYSM for existing!
