Tabi Rela a Good Compromise between East and West
Our Taiko group (based in Canada) has resisted wearing traditional Tabi, but are finding that the Tabi Rela are a good compromise because they look like tabi but have the convenience of western-style slip-on shoes. The online conversion table between Japanese to North American shoe sizes was very helpful and fit has generally been good, the exception being that half sizes were not available when we ordered so we went down to the closest whole number and we should have gone up.
