Maison Margiela is no stranger to deconstruction, in fact it’s long been a key component of the brand’s work and the current impetus on ultra-chunky sneakers provides the perfect playground for Margiela’s unique techniques.
We recently saw the brand reveal those disassembled Fusion sneakers however the newest attempt is focussed much more on a minimalist approach. Arriving in mostly white leather, the silhouette features carefully placed cut-outs upon the midfoot, sidewall, heel and tongue that expose the core, sponge-like fabric that’s usually hidden beneath. Sturdy laces and an additional hook-and-loop strap across the top will help keep your feet in place and the exposed black fabric around the heel collar brings both a contrast and addition to the torn-apart style. The entire disheveled unit sits upon an bulky, 70mm midsole that’s in keeping with the ongoing dad shoe trend.
