Jika-tabi (地下足袋?, "tabi that contact the ground") is a type of outdoor footwear worn in Japan. It was invented in the 20th century.
Also known (outside Japan) as "tabi boots", they are modelled on tabi, traditional split-toe Japanese socks. Like other tabi, jika-tabi have a divided toe area so that they can in theory be worn with slip-on thonged footwear, but they are heavy-duty, and resemble boots.
An authentic reproduction of a real ninja boot in every way. The split toe feature is designed to improve the foot's gripping ability. The ridged rubber soles improve traction and are virtually soundless. High top covers the calf. Fastened by hook and loop enclosure. Full sizes only.
