These are shoes made from tabi fabric. They are available in many styles and are easy to wear. One stylish way to wear them is to detach the Kohaze clasp and show off a bit of the lining. Because these are made from cloth, they are best not worn on rainy days.
Tabi socks are sold here under the name of “Tabishita.” There is a wide array of colors and patterns, so you can take the time to choose the one you like best. They stock everything from children’s to adults’ sizes.
Smartphone covers in dazzling pop-styled patterns. There are tons, and they’re all super cute. They are sized for different iPhone and Android devices.
