Tabi is more than just a shoe brand – it is a lifestyle based on ancient Japanese traditions and more than 15 years of personal experience. The unique and modern design combines functionality with comfort and has a sustainable production as a matter of course. Tabi is shaped after the natural structure of the foot. At the same time, it is adapted to modern life, where it is vital to stop and feel the ground beneath the feet.
From his travels in Japan, Eik Ottosen, the founder of new Danish brand Tabi Footwear, knew about a traditional type of footwear with a long story of enhancing the biomechanics of the foot and supporting natural movement. With that in mind, Tabi was designed with a focus on both modern design, functionality and comfort.
Tabi is based on the foot’s natural structure and gives a sense of walking on bare feet.
The whole idea behind the Tabi shoe is based on Innate Amplification, which means strengthening one’s innate physical abilities. The Japanese discovered it over 100 years ago, and it has since been the focal point of their traditional footwear, used by everyone from rickshaw pullers to martial artists. Being able to feel the ground under one’s feet and give the foot free movement helps create a special kind of grounding – not only physically but also mentally.
Scandinavian simplicity meets Japanese functionality with the new brand Tabi Footwear. Tabi is more than just a shoe brand – it is a lifestyle based on ancient Japanese traditions and years of personal experience. A flexible, well-de- signed shoe that is really comfortable to wear.
Created out of a passion for the good life and a love for hiking in nature, Tabi is the perfect combination between your regular sneaker and the amplification of your innate abilities. It protects your feet while allowing them to be in con- tact with the ground beneath them.
