After initially previewing Brandblack‘s innovative Tabi Sock Sandal early this year, the sock-in-sandal hybrid has finally launched just in time for fall, and it’s one of the dopest pieces of footwear this season.
The LA-based footwear-turned-sportswear label first dropped an olive colorway with KITH last week to mark its official launch, and today sees the cozy sock/sandal Vibram-soled combo dropping in four additional colorways giving you plenty of fall options to flex in.
The Tabi’s DNA takes direct influence from the fashion world as it was originally made for fashion designer Willy Chavarria for his NYFW debut earlier this year. The sandals’ technical elements combined with its fashion sensibilities make the Tabi a killer statement piece with endless ways to style. Both equal parts avant-garde and goth ninja, the Tabi’s thick Vibram sole and completely enclosed sock lining make them as sturdy as regular kicks.
Although style is uniquely personal, the best way to wear these would probably be with cropped pants, be it billowy trousers or rolled up denim so you can show off just how unique these are.
All five colorways retail for $140 and you can cop right now at Brandblack’s website.
