Tabi socks are split-toe socks for indoor wear and have been a tradition in Japan for centuries. These Japanese socks are worn by women and men and make the perfect accessory for a kimono or yukata. Tabi can be worn with thong sandals or without shoes while relaxing or lounging. While white was once a common color for spiritual reasons, today Tabi socks come in a variety of colors, prints, and patterns. They are worn with many different outfits and considered fashion flair. Toe socks make a great gift.
