Description

This pair of white nylon tabi covers would be worn over tabi socks to keep them clean. They are made like the socks, with a split toe that would allow them to be worn with geta or zori.

Tabi are traditional Japanese ankle-height, split-toe socks. They are unisex and worn with traditional thonged footwear, zori and geta. Most tabi are white, but patterned and colored tabi are becoming increasingly popular.
