About

Hand Dyed Tabi Socks and Tabi Boots

I first started imported Tabi Socks in 1999. In 2000 I started the website cooleastmarket.com to sell Tabi Socks only. After a few years, someone suggested Tabi Boots and I found a good source for those. People wanted different colours of the Boots and Socks so I started dyeing them.

After working from home all this time, in August 2012 I opened the Cool East Market Tabi Store at 1390 Danforth Ave. , Toronto. It's been great being part of the renaissance happening in this stretch of the Danforth and getting to know people in the neighbourhood who are very supportive of new businesses.

At first people are curious about Tabi and then they become very enthusiastic. Now in addition to customers from all over the world, more and more Torontonians are enjoying the practical, healthy and comfortable Tabi Socks.

Shipping
I'm located in Toronto, ON, Canada. Single pairs of socks for Canadian customers are sent via postage stamps. For larger Canadian orders I use Canada Post directly from Etsy so you will automatically receive a tracking number. For US orders I use a shipping service that connects to USPS and tracking is automatically provided. We deliver packages to the shipping service usually Tuesdays and Fridays. Tracking is available for some International orders for an extra fee.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to hygienic concerns, socks can not be returned. You can return the Tabi Boots if they have only been tried on for size for exchange, refund or store credit.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Please contact for custom dyeing. We can make the boots or socks most any colour you need. We can also reduce prices for bulk orders. If you have a pattern you want to add to the boots, we are interested in doing that as well.

Sizing details

Sizing is SO important with the boots. Our boots are sized in centimeters and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE measure your feet so you know Exactly the size you need. Follow the directions on the listing, measure carefully and you avoid a lot of cost and trouble. There are many charts on the internet but they do not agree. Sizes vary between brands, they are not exact and there is not an exact correspondence between sizes and CM. We allow ONE (1) exchange only so please measure carefully and you will not be disappointed.
If you need to return the boots, please contact me for instructions. You are responsible for shipping them to me and I will pay to ship the new size back to you.
Socks may not be returned since they are worn on bare skin.

Care instructions

The Tabi Socks and Tabi Boots are dyed using a colour-fast method. The colour doesn't run. But it will fade naturally over time, especially in the sun.
You can wash your boots in the washing machine but repeated hot water washing will damage the stitching. Wiping with a damp cloth is the preferred method for cleaning.

The boots are made for martial arts and are very tough. The soles never de-laminate from the shoe.

Hot water causes the Socks to shrink due to the cotton content so please wash them in cool water.

Wholesale availability

Please let us know if you want to make a bulk purchase. Wholesale rates are available.
