1. Festival Tabi


Sole of Festival Tabi

It has a simple sole pattern with a lot of allow shape on the middle part and small dots and lines on the finger and heel part. Compared to slip-resistant tabi, it is thinner and lighter sole. 

 

2. Tabi Air-Insole V

Sole of Tabi Air Insole V

It has an obviously slip-resistant sole design with a lot of wave shape lines on the whole part. According to the maker, the slip-resistant quality is improved 15% from the conventional one. Also, it is comfortable with an arch support and a big air cushion. Over 31cm sizes are available, too. 

 

3. Kurashikiya Tabi Saiki

Sole of Kurashikiya Tabi Saiki

It has a cool and slip-resistant sole design with distinctive cross lines and zigzag patterns. As the air cushion appears on the sole, it has quality cushion function. But, the air cushion doesn't appear from the side to look it stylish (it would depend on the preference of people).  Also, relatively thinner sole looks stylish and it has a slip resistance with a newly developed rubber sole. 

 

4. Kurashikiya Tabi Saibu

Sole of Kurashikiya Tabi Saibu

It is one of our popular tabi shoes and has a lot of medium-size dots on the whole part and wave shape patterns on the outer part. It has a barefoot feeling and fits your foot well. Also, it has a shock absorber inside the heel part.

As well as the sole of Festival Tabi, it has a simple sole pattern with a lot of allow shape on the middle part and small dots and lines on the finger and heel part.

It has a beautiful and slip-resistant square pattern with a lot of smaller arrow and bigger arrow shapes. Also, it has a cup-insole with an arch support and fits your feet well.

Sole of Matsuri Air Sewn

It has a simple sole with less part touching the ground. It has a lot of small dots on the thumb, index, side, and heel part. It's very simple design. It's comfortable with shock absorbing air insole though the sole is thinner.
