sou sou :: tabi short boots
These irresistably comfortable boots are my latest infatuation. The split-toe style might take some getting used to, but the flexible soles and comfortable construction didn't even need wearing-in. These split toes were originally designed for construction workers, who had to balance on scaffolding made of bamboo poles. Clever! I recommend getting the insoles for a little extra support. Don't forget to buy some tabi socks so you have toe-mittens to fit perfectly in your shoes. Made with cotton canvas uppers and rubber soles. Available in plum, green, white, and black.
