About Us

Video by Pedro Ferreira

Cool East Market was the first website in the world to specialize in Japanese Style split-toe Tabi products.  We Know Tabi!  We've been importing and selling Tabi Socks since 2000 and Jikatabi Boots since 2006.

Since locating our office in a retail location at 1390 Danforth Ave. in Toronto, we've added other types of healthy minimal footwear to the collection.  Kigo eco shoes and Xero barefoot Shoes are practical, comfortable and well-priced, great for running or any outdoor activity.

New additions to the Cool East Market store are  Eco Wings Canada Re-purposed Tire Tube Accessories and PodoSense Natural Skin Care Products.

We have a wide variety of Tabi Socks that are comfortable, good for health and a cool fashion statement. Our Jikatabi Boots are very well made and are popular for many Martial Arts such as Ninjitsu, Aikido, Shintaido, Hapkido.   People also like them for performing Japanese Theatre, Taiko Drumming, etc. because they are so durable and comfortable.

We always have something good for sale at the eBay Canadian Tabi Shop. Please come visit.

If you are in Toronto, please drop by to see the products up close or give us a call 416-462-3509 

Store Hours:   Tuesday to Friday  11 am to 6 pm
Saturday 11 am to 5 pm
