Outdoor training sessions can be some of the best classes you’ll ever have as a Ninjutsu practitioner, but awful with the wrong footwear. Trainers especially can be nasty to train in. Get yourself some Outdoor Ninja Tabi Boots. These unique split toes shoes have long been associated with Ninjutsu and are now classed as the traditional footwear to help with learning those Ninjustu techniques. They have amazing hard wearing, grippy soles, that will need to stand up to the punishment of training. They’re amazingly comfy, give you great awareness of the floor and look great. These are the real deal and what every outdoor Ninjutsu training session needs.
Tabi Boots have been around in Japan for over hundred years and are commonly seen on construction sites. Ninjutsu have adopted them, partly due to their need for a durable outdoor shoe but also because of the maneuverability and flexibility they offer. The split toe style allows additional grip that you wouldn't get from a regular shoe.
Made from a soft canvas fabric top with a tough durable rubber sole, that’s textured for supreme grip. These are a long length Ninja Tabi Boots, going up the calf on the leg with a Velcro backing for fastening. The design of the boot means you can walking almost silently, a great feature for Ninjutsu. The flat sole allows you to feel the floor and have perfect foot placement on the ground underneath.
“People can be pretty picky when it comes to Tabi Boots, so my best advice can be to know what you’re buying. These are the Calf length, velcro backed, grippy rubber soled outdoor Ninja Tabi Boots. They are not great for indoor and for that buy our indoor option.”
