Tabi are traditional Japanese socks dating back to the 15th century. Worn by both men and women, they are toe-dividing, separating the big toe from the others. Traditionally worn with kimonos, they perfectly accommodated thonged footwear. Recently, Tabi toe socks (including their modern five-toe socks variation) have grown in popularity around the world thanks to their many benefits:
When you use every aspect of your feet, as nature intended, your body gains more awareness and improves balance.
Separated toes reduce bacteria's ability to grow and develop common ailments, including odour issues. Toe socks make your feet feel fresh and free.
Toe freedom promotes additional movement inside your foot, which improves blood circulation. This helps your feet feel cool in the summer and warm in the winter, without the need for bulky socks or keeping the toes rigid.
