Rikio Ansen Jika-Tabi: Black 12-tab
These shoes have a reinforced front for both the big toe and the smaller toes. The two toe segments can still move independently, so the improved balance and comfort is not impaired. Other than the reinforcement, they appear all together identical to Fighter jika-tabi. Currently Ansen jika-tabi are made in sizes from 24cm through to 28cm and a height of 12-tabs.
The external material is black (purple available by special order), 100% cotton with a tan-colored, flexible-rubber bottom. The inside is lined with a thin, white, cotton material and the insole is a thick cotton padding. The toe-boxes are constructed with rigid steel for your protection.
