FAQ

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.

Silk Tabis Review

First off, the tabis are amazing and are very comfortable! I worn it for a couple outings and they broke in very easily. I would definitely recommend getting tabi socks to go with it because regular socks do not work so well in my experience. I also noticed that these shoes do not slide easily either so that's pretty neat! As comfortable as it is, my big toes felt uncomfortable at the part that separates it from the rest of my other toes. I feel that some extra cushioning at that area could remedy this problem! Otherwise, I feel that these shoes are perfect!

We're so happy that you love your tabis even though we make tabi socks, we've designed our ILYSM tabis to be worn barefoot so we'd definitely encourage that if you're having discomfort! (the knit is antimicrobial too so you don't have to worry about stinky feet ). If you have any other questions about fit or comfort, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at dm@ilysm.com !

So different, and I like it!

I wasn't sure what to expect with these shoes. They aren't like anything I've ever worn before... but I like it! They are comfortable, unique, and perfect for adding a little something extra to my style.

The First Kind to Try - Very Soft

Perfect fit, and the silk inner material makes these feel like slipper socks with a more durable outsole. Bottom cushioning is limited, so you should expect these to feel like wearing any minimalist sneaker. They breathe really well and stay cool during the summer.

Super comfortable - no breaking in required!

These are super comfortable walking shoes. Usually I have to break in even sneakers and other supposedly comfortable shoes, and get blisters in the process, but nothing like that happened with these. These shoes saved my feet on an international trip where there was lots of hiking and I had brought hiking shoes, sneakers and these Tabis. I ended up mostly wearing the Tabis!
