London-based fashion label maharishi unveils its own version of the iconic Tabi boot. The shoe silhouette boasts a split-toe design and is based on the traditional Japanese 'jika-tabi,' hence the name of the model. The jika-tabi was made famous by Maison Margiela and the latest iteration by the label taps back to the boot's utilitarian heritage. There is a deeper focus on the Tabi boot being functional for construction workers, gardeners, soldiers, and farmers.
The Tabi split toe boot is available in either a black or white colorway and has an upper constructed from canvas. It also has a classic gum sole as its foundation and adjustable heel fasteners with the Japanese "MILTYPE" design. The shoes will be launching exclusively at maharishi's London retail location and online beginning May 4 and will also come with a dust bag and Jason Markk travel cleaning pack.
