5 Things You Can Put in Between Your Tabi Boots

The Tabi boot is undoubtedly one of the most iconic designs in the history of footwear. It was first introduced by Martin Margiela during his S/S89 runway show in Paris and celebrated its 30th birthday in 2019. Right now they are worn by admirers all around the world.

Margiela obviously didn’t ‘invent’ the Tabi, it’s a traditional Japanese worker’s shoe that has existed for at least four centuries. He just did what he does best: deconstructing established forms in order to construct something new. The idea behind the Tabi boot was to create an invisible shoe, the illusion of a bare foot walking on a chunky heel.

“The Tabi boot is the most important footprint of my career: it’s recognizable, it still goes on after 25 years, and it has never been copied” – Martin Margiela

More than just a shoe

Besides a beautiful piece of footwear, Tabi’s also tend to be an interesting topic of conversation (“funny boots you’re wearing”) and the ideal accessory to carry along small accessories. Money, cigarettes, a knife, flowers, bank cards and even little shoulder bags. You name it, Tabi can handle it.

Invest in a pair of your own via maisonmargiela.com, we can assure you you won’t regret it.
