Story & Recommendation
SOU・SOU – Experience modern takes on Japanese classics
Traditional Japanese footwear is synonymous with geta and zori sandals. And when wearing these, one dons “tabi” socks.
One of the only remaining producers of these socks in Japan is SOU・SOU tabi. Situated inside of one of the local Kyoto clothing brand SOU・SOU’s many stylish and minimalist stores, SOU・SOU tabi focuses solely on the brand’s most popular item, “Tabi Shoes” and socks.
Made from special “tabi fabric,” the shoes are lightweight, easy to wear and come in a range of funky designs that include everything from solid colors to traditional Kyoto-esque patterns. With other items and accessories including kimono and yukata, also on sale, SOU・SOU is a must-visit for any fan of traditional Japanese clothing.
