They are mostly associated with construction workers, rickshaw drivers, festival goers, and martial artists (and ninja!), but the truth is that the jikatabi shoes with the split-toe design (similar to the tabi socks worn with kimono and zori sandals) are very practical and very good for the feet because they allow for a broader range of motion as you walk. The Marugo Sports Jog Air Tabi Shoes are a more imaginative take on the jikatabi concept with a design that brings them closer to modern fashion!
Of course, the split-toe design is there but besides that, the Marugo Sports Jog Air Tabi Shoes are a pair of sneakers made of polyester with a rubber sole and flexible pouch between its layers for extra cushioning for your feet. They come in three basic colors to match any wardrobe (black, white and red) and in a variety of sizes, covering all the common choices in Japan, Europe, and the United States. Whether it's everyday walking or light running, whether in the city, on the beach, or in the countryside, these shoes allow you to move freer and more comfortably!
