Founded in 2019, Tabito is a young brand still finding its feet in the wider world of sneaker fashion. Standing out in a saturated market is no easy task, but the ambitious folks at Tabito have already made inroads to design, and create a range of products that bridge the gap between unique aesthetics and construction.
The foundations for the brand lie in their Okayama-based factory, that have been producing high-quality sneakers for athletes since the early 1960s. In the lead-up to the brand's inception, Tabito's lead designer, Teruyoshi Ochi spend months training at the factory in order to gain first-hand experience with the various unique construction elements of the sneakers he had dreamt up.
The high-cut "Brace" sneakers are made from domestically sourced steerhide leather, giving the sneakers a luxurious look and feel. A unique design aspect of these sneakers is the metal zipper opening on the side of the shoe, further elevating aesthetics and functionality.
