In Other Shoes – Japanese Tabis

Leave a comment

For me, socks in sandals have always been equivalent with either geeky science teachers or dorky dads (or actually just my own dorky dad, who is in fact a science teacher).

But here’s something that might change your mind about the whole socks in sandals concept: Socks made specifically for Japanese Geta sandals.

“Japanese Getas socks, black canvas lined with white canvas, no leg, the big toe is free. The socks are called Tabi, and the black colour shows that they are for men.” – Søren L. Tuxen

Let us know what you think about socks in sandals and check out our other post about Japanese Getas here.
