The Maison Margiela Tabi Boot has been a cult-loved footwear silhouette for years. The split-toe design, inspired by Japanese tabi socks, first made its appearance in the Belgian designer’s inaugural show back in 1989. Three decades later, the relevance of these avant-garde boots in fashion and street style has remained stronger than ever – its reflective design from Fall/Winter 2018 especially resonated with the Instagram-obsessed millennial generation, with the color-shifting shoes popping up here and there on the social media profiles of young, stylish fashion fiends.
This season, Maison Margiela has continued to reimagine the classic boot in unexpected ways. With a clean, white leather makeup, the Tabis have been given another photo-worthy (or should we say, Boomerang-appropriate?) makeover, this time with hologram heels that feature different logos and signature motifs of the fashion house as the wearer walks.
Here are what the boots look like in action:
Perfect for minimalists who also enjoy a little bit of style statement, these Maison Margiela Tabi boots can now be purchased online at lagarconne.com for $1,160 USD.
