I think this is the first time in Star Trek history that a costume piece is cool enough to wear in every day public. Let alone something i would wear every day. and i do

Thanks again to the people who discussed those cool boots here.

Thanks to this GREAT thread, I'm going to hunt down some
jikatabi boots in my town, (so that I DON'T have to buy them online).

Lots of reviews rave about how silent and comfortable they are.
The key is buying 'em too small as they take a week to stretch to full size. If you wear a size 12, buy size 11.5.

You are most likely going to have to buy them online. They are really difficult to find at a local store.

You can get really cheap tabi at Amazon or CoolEastMarket.com

However, you will have to pay more for higher quality tabi.

I really want you to stop necroing these shoe-whoring threads. Either you're trying to sell them, or... well, let me draw you a picture. A man sits cross-legged on a wooden stool. He is in a room, its walls unpainted. A dim lightbulb swings above him, imparting an eerie life - or at least, a creeping movement - to the many shadows, a pair of which hide his eyes. He cradles a pair of tabi, lovingly, gently, as one would a tiny child. He sings to them - a lullaby. Such a soft sound.

Then he sees you. The lullaby ends. His mouth slides open, exposing rows of metallic, razor teeth. And then there is nothing.

So which is it? Are you trying to flog these shoes, or do you harbour an obsession bordering on insanity?
