    Though the stylist may have been drunk for that shoot, there still looks to be several nice pieces featured there; not a total loss.
  3. I WEAR JIKA–TABI [地下足袋]

    Although I think the five fingers are hideous, the socks that have all the toes separated are really comfortable, I recommend those instead of tabi socks.

    Cool stuff Dolphinski, the olive looks rad. In case you or anyone else wants a pair before the Maha SS18 drop, Marugo has had them out for a while sans olive cw. Heres the shorter version in black, white, and navy, and then the taller version in black or white.

    That was fast! They'll grow on her, they look better once they're broken in too
  6. I WEAR JIKA–TABI [地下足袋]

    //JIKATABI INFO DUMP// RETAILERS/SELLERS: Japan-Zone, Jika-Tabi.com, SOU SOU, Maison Margiela, Assaboots, Ayya Wear, Amazon, Ebay. In my experience Japan Zone has the most to offer in terms of selection, never had any shipping issues either, cant speak to the others as I haven't ordered from them. BRANDS/MANUFACTURERES: Rikio, Suokaido, Marugo, Takesyo, SOU SOU, Ayya Wear, Lafeet, Maison Margiela, Abasi Rosborough, There are typically three different types or styles of Tabi that you can find with the first three makers listed, those being: The traditional and most recognizable style, ranging from knee height to below the ankle, usually very thin soled with minimal padding unless stated otherwise. The Safety Tabi, these are tabi that are outfitted with various levels of protection ranging from a resin or steel toe cap, spiked/reinforced tread, big bulky straps, or all three. The Sneaker Style, much more like running shoes, thicker soles, laces, designs akin to your typical New Balance or Asics. BACKGROUND ON ME AND MY TABI EXPERIENCES/RIKIO VS SUOKAIDO: My first pair of Jikatabi were passed down to me from my Dad (yes seriously he used to wear them for rock climbing and hiking in his teens) I wore them sparingly and not in public. They were from Suokaido and are probably the most common tabi in the US, velcro fastened with a very thin sole, the rubber wasnt flexible and they didnt fit very well in the calf. Eventually I wanted another pair, something with more padding and a more adjustable fit. I bought a pair of Rikio Fighter Tabi and found them to be much more comfortable and well fitted in the leg, the sole was still quite thin so I bought a pair of insoles and cut a split in them to match the tabi design. After a year of solid everyday wear my custom insoles had to be replaced twice, the tread was holding up just fine and so was the stitching but I decided I wanted another pair. The summer rolled around and I bought a pair of Rikio Air Fit Short, these have a padded insole built for shock absorption and comfort. The padding is glued to the sole from the inside and it gives the entire shoe a more rigid fit that forms to your foot and gives you arch support, the rubber sole is soft but strong, it holds up against asphalt but will still bend with your foot instead of restricting it. The most comfortable shoe I've ever worn, I've had two pair in the last 3 years, the first being the initial pair I bought which lasted me 2 years with constant everyday wear, the other is still in near perfect condition after a year of 80% daily wear. CLOSING/SHUT UP ALREADY: Theres many different Tabi to choose from in various colors and styles, I hope this long post will help you narrow down a pair that suit you. Feel free to DM me with any questions or post them here, I'd be happy to help. //JIKATABI INFO DUMP// -5

    If anyone has any questions about wearing Jikatabi shoes/boots, what brands are out there that produce tabi shoes and which brands are trusted/popular feel free to ask me. I've been wearing Jikatabi for close to 5 years now and have been through several pair and gone between 2 brands, have done lots of long searching the weird dusty corners of google images for what brand makes what and if I dont know the answer to your question I could probably point you in the right direction. Just thought I'd throw that out there since @danii brought them up in lieu of Maha's models. I did it before it was cool ! !1

    Wheres the zipper?
  12. Acronym.

    Joke around a little in acrhive comments and you'll be blocked. Seems that Blee is a fairly strict comment curator. (Don't worry though, he'll continue to use your jokes after you're gone.)
  13. Acronym.

    I think my endgame piece is the P10A-CH. I love acronym with a passion but 90% of their stuff is priced too highly for me to be able to justify purchasing. Though i would love to own it all I couldnt sleep at night if I spent that much money on clothing. ( runner up endgame piece would be the J39)

    I feel bad for whoever did the sound/editing for that video. They are obviously a pro but good grief I cant imagine how tedious that was. Cool video, nice looking bag. erlsn with hair puts it at a 7/10
  15. Acronym.

    Im not exactly sure who the 'correct' audience is but I'd rather it not get exposure to people who will ride a hype wave and to people who buy a product only to then resell at double or triple the retail price. I've always been in the camp of if something is cool everyone should know about it but at the same time, the more people know about it the less a community aspect can surround said thing. It feels kind of inevitable though due to the pros and cons being almost inseparable.
