A Split-Toe Story
Introduced at the very first show of the Maison, for the Spring-Summer 1989 season, the Tabi shoe takes inspiration from the traditional Japanese split-toe sock, bearing the same name. A “heritage classic” of the Maison, which perfectly captures its avant-garde and insubordinate spirit, this footwear piece has been revisited in different traditions throughout the history of the fashion house. A nod to the styles seen on the SS20 runway, which referenced the uniforms of those who fought to protect their country during the French Resistance. The iconic split-toe silhouette is set on a stacked air-bubble heel that’s embossed with the signature numbers logo.
