The sock runner trend took over the footwear industry this year giving a laceless alternative to the traditional sneaker. Demna Gvasalia led the charge releasing Balenciaga‘s Speed Trainer in beach blue, black and white. Reebok and Fendi followed up with iterations of their own that serve as believable dupes of the hot silhouette. To end 2017, MM6 Maison Margiela throws its hat into the ring debuting a sleek neoprene runner.
The shoe shares similarities with the others but its midsole is deconstructed to add some of the brand’s unconventional elegance. The all-black upper is interrupted with a small white thread detail on the rear that is both minimal and chic. A premium rubber sole completes the runner.
