These shoes are a part of collaboration between Gypsy & Sons and Moonstar. Moonstar is a shoemaker founded in 1873, around 150 years ago. They started with Tabi production in Kurume, and now manufacturing vulcanized shoes. Moonstar purchased german-made sewing machines and started mass-merchandized manufacture of Tabi for the first time in Japan. In 1925, finally they started to use rubber sole attached to the outsole part of Tabi shoes. Now they still work with the same manufacturing method, which is called vulcanization, rubber sole is molded by vulcanizing and pressure-bonding. Thus the outsole is hard enough to hold the shape as well as durable.
