Celebrating the Spirit of Martial Arts since 1999, Cool East Market has footwear that is durable, flexible and affordable.
Our customers appreciate the tough but flexible sole of the Jikatabi which is expertly bonded to the uppers and will not separate. Our Jikatabi wear well under the toughest training conditions. The flat sole keeps you well grounded and the split toe allows for movement and flexibility.
All our Jikatabi feature traditional light metal clasps called Kohase to fasten. They all have the same reliable construction. The tallest Jikatabi with 12-fasteners is available in size 23 to 30 cm.
Most sizes are available in the 10-fastener Jikatabi.
The Low-Top Jikatabi with 5-fasteners has all sizes 23 to 30 cm. and features slightly different styled uppers.
