"Festival" Tabi shoes
More good news about new products! We have more special order products lined up and made available to you all, dear readers~
Today's post is about "Festival" tabi shoes. You may have seen the "Festival" tabi boots available at our physical location & on the online store. If not, you can check them out here.
These tabi shoes, like the boots are made of slightly thinner material & have a slightly thinner rubber sole than the usual. Also, these shoes are made more tight fitting than usual. All this is to provide maximum flexibility for the wearer. When going out to traditional festivals in Japan, you want to have a lightweight shoe for all the activities that you would be participating in (dancing, Taiko drumming, etc).
Some more specifics on the "Festival" tabi shoes themselves:
New tabi boots manufactured by Moonstar Co. which has been producing great quality shoes since 1873 in Fukuoka Prefecture. This model is the same model which has been used for traditional Japanese festivals and thus more tight fitting than the usual.
Comes with 5 buttons that enable you to control the tightness of the shoes.
Material: Canvas Cotton; Made in Fukuoka Japan
These come in the following colors/inner-lining designs:
Black/Chrysanthemum Burst (link)
White/Glittering Light (link)
Again, these are special order products so they are only available online and made to order.
Please allow 2~3 weeks for delivery and there is the option to come pick them up at the San Francisco store once we receive it.
