Do you have tabi socks to wear with your shoes? In Japan it is considered taboo to wear shoes without shoes. In the Edo period, high ranking courtesans would show off their bare feet. Today showing your bare feet is considered taboo and socks are worn with almost all kinds of shoes, even sandels. We have a lovely selection of tabi socks for sale i our Japanese kimono store.
