When I was 11 years old, my family moved from sunny Florida in the United States all the way to Tokyo, Japan. All 7 years I lived there, I absolutely loved it. Nothing stood out more than the incredible people I met and the adorable characters, products, fashion, and art. Everything had that "kawaii" effect (or "cute" in Japanese).
I walked by a store that was selling the funniest little toe socks I'd ever seen and I had to get them all. There were singing pandas, dancing pigs, and sleeping giraffes... I'd never seen anything like these socks before. And not only were they cute and could make anyone who would see them laugh, but they were also surprisingly comfortable. I found myself beginning to prefer the feel of toe socks since I didn't get the sweaty feeling between my toes anymore.
Flash forward to when I moved back to the United States. I began to notice that fun and colorful socks were becoming more and more in style, but none were ever as fun or creative as the toe socks I saw in Japan. I searched the internet high and low for them.. Amazon, Ebay, Target, Etsy.. no where sold the toe socks that I had bought in Japan.
"Why don't you just make your own?" my parents asked.
A light went off in my head. If I could no longer buy these socks, then I would make them. And why not let other people enjoy them, too?
Tabi Toes was born.
You may think the socks are silly, strange, funny, or a bit too out there. Good. Because they are. And that's exactly how we want them to be. We love those people who don't take themselves too seriously and find that they get a good laugh when they see our socks! The sillier the better in our opinion! That's what made them so special in Japan and that's what makes our socks unlike anything else you will find on the market today. Not only are Tabi Toes comfortable, but they leave an impression and if we've made you smile today, then our job has been accomplished.
Arigato and happy shopping!
Once upon a time, before I lived in Japan, I would've thought the same thing. Something between my toes? No way. That can't be comfortable.
I was a skeptic, raising an eyebrow at those who walked by with their toe shoes and socks.
But then, something happened. I tried them on. Yep, that's right folks. I saw the cutest little pair of toe socks with the funniest little characters on each toe at a store in Japan and I couldn't resist trying them on.
My feet were warmer. I didn't get that weird sweaty feeling between my toes. And my toes felt, well, free. I was lighter on my feet, a bounce in my step. And every time I took off my shoes and saw those adorable little characters on my toes, I smiled.
You may still think I'm crazy and that is absolutely okay. But, I dare everyone to try them. See what you think for yourself! Hey, you may not fall in love like I did! But one thing is for sure. Your toes will never have looked cuter and there will be a smile on your face the moment you open up your Tabi Toes package.
So, I dare you to dive in. Toes first ;)
