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.

Not a good for people with large digits.

I wear a size 13w and can barely fit my big toe into the slot.

Super Comfy but …

First of all, nice branding. I love the vibe! I love the package design, the experience, and the shoe design. The shoes fit perfect for me. Shoes US men 14 -> exactly my size. The upper material is super Comfy, but the Sole… I really don’t like the bump below the arch of the feet. Furthermore, the sole is very thick and stiff at the heel, so that, when I’m walking, my heel slips slightly up. Maybe the version 2022 will have a more “Barefootshoe-Like-Sole”. By that I just mean: Super Flexible all over! (Not just at the tiptoe) Thank you for putting your vision out to the world! I’m a fan of Tabi! Best wishes Levon Germany

Hi Levon! I'm so glad to hear that you love your tabis so much, though I'm sorry to hear about the slight issues you're having with the fit. If slippage at the heel is a primary issue, I would recommend getting a pair of heel huggers (or similar adhesive stickers to put on the back of the tabis to hold them in place better). If you have any other questions about the fit, you're more than welcome to email us at dm@ilysm.com I hope this helps!

The Last Shoe You'll Need For Everyday Use. Until You Buy More ILSYM!

I've grown sick of how compressed my feet will feel after hours of wearing shoes. Especially in an office setting where I am sitting for most of the day. I often found myself taking off my shoes under my desk! I tried different knit shoes, but none came close to how these tabi feel. Truly like wearing socks. I also have the Hydrangea colorway, and these are a lovely more "lowkey" colorway.
