With these types of shoes, where the toes are split, it allows you to move your toes more independently than if you were using normal shoes, which in turn lets you grip the ground more easily. This means especially on rough ground, you can move your weight with ease, helping you to keep your balance, and making you feel more secure while you move about! This special shape, characteristic of the Tabi shoes, also has the merits of improving your ability to work out, reduce abrasion and protecting your feet. Thanks to the use of mesh like fabric, these sneakers are also breathable and comfortable to wear, making them especially appropriate for outdoor use or when working out.

Functionalities perfect for running and outdoor scenes

Japanese TABI Sneakers-Sports Jog AIRⅡ

Updated to help support you in your outdoor and running activities even more, with increased functionality, after a first successful Kickstarter campaign that received a lot of positive feedback! The Sports Jog AIR looks to be a bridge between the old and the new, looking to take on this old design, keeping the older beneficial functions of the traditional tabi, and combine them with modern upgrades and functions. Experience traditional Japanese footwear in a whole new light! 

We're launching soon so enter your email to be notified when the campaign launches, so you can lock yourself in for an exclusive discount! The Kickstarter Pre Page is live so go check it out!

Function and form brought together with the Sanada Himo cord

A Sanada Himo cord is a long and narrow woven cord made from thread made of cotton or silk. It is strong and has a very interesting design! By using this cord as one of the shoelace holes, the shoes feel more fit on your feet, and reduce the stress you feel with other shoes as your feet can’t move around as much. The Sanada Himo cord also has a very long history in Japan going back to the Warring States period.
