If you’re getting famed designer Ronnie Fieg’s stamp of approval on a new look, it has the potential to take off. And now on the shelves in his Kith stores is burgeoning label Brandblack’s new sock-sandal hybrid.
The Brandblack Tabi is available in Kith doors now in men’s sizing and retails for $140. It can also be purchased via kith.com. Kith launched the olive colorway on Aug. 8 and is now also selling the black iteration.

Today, the Tabi in all the colorways Brandblack has to offer — five in total — will be available via brandblack.com.
The Tabi is a hybrid between a sock and a sandal and is executed with a one-piece tubular knit upper, nylon canvas straps, neoprene harnesses and is completed with a Vibram rubber outsole unit. The Brandblack Tabi, according to the label, is one of three styles that it has done with the outsole manufacturer.
