The Reebok Classic Leather Gets the Maison Margiela Tabi TouchRelease: 30 January 2021
If you’re the type of sneakerhead who dabbles in both the high-fashion and sneaker world, then we bet you were excited when legendary French luxury house Maison Margiela officially announced that they were partnering with Reebok. After the duo announced their first collaborative project – the Tabi Instapump – we realised that this link-up would be out-of-this-world! Their next project, despite still being extreme AF, is thankfully a lot more approachable and sees the Reebok Classic Leather given that Margiela Tabi touch.
Although a Reebok silhouette, fans of Maison Margiela are titillated by the slew of if-you-know-you-know references that have been infused into this obscure creation. First up, we’ve got the Tabi toe which, despite not originating with Margiela, has become a signature that can be seen across many of his in-line footwear. From what we can tell, the Classic Leather has been blessed with an all-black base, however paint has been cascaded over the whole model. This is yet another classic move by Margiela, which has seen them use a technique called ‘Bianchetto’ – meaning the paint chips away with wear. Look familiar? That’s because it’s been used many times by the luxury house, and most famously on their Converse colab.
If you’re obsessed with the obscure, and have passion for fashion, then these are definitely the shoes for you. The Maison Margiela x Reebok Classic Leather Tabi will retail for $350 and be available at select retailers on January 30.
