This website and its contents were created by Aaron Bramson as a way to bring the joy of jika-tabi to people all over the world. I've been wearing the shoes consistently since I got my first pair during the summer of 1998. I have found them to be comfortable, durable, versatile and stylish - not to mention being good conversation starters.
I started Jika Tabi Inc. in September 2006 to take my jika-tabi business to the next level. As the operation has grown it has undergone many changes and improvements - which includes this new website, a deal on the production of new designs, and a streamlined wholesale order process.
Though I have the opportunity to bring many goods from Japan to America, I have focused on jika-tabi because I myself am a big fan of them. I hope this site is a useful resource for people who are interested in learning more about jika-tabi (no matter where they got them) as well as joining a community of those who share their enjoyment of the world's best shoes.
I have further plans to expand this site to be more interactive and provide more detailed industry information. Stay tuned.
