Way back in 2002, during Martin Margiela's tenure at the celebrated mainstay, Maison Margiela's Replica Sneaker surfaced with hand-drawn etchings, thus turning the German army trainer–inspired silhouette into a piece of wearable art. Now, under the tutelage of John Galliano, Margiela have reinterpreted the design for an exclusive release alongside END.
Hand-painted for an artisanal finish, each pair sports a graffiti-style 'MARGIELA' tag and touches of black spray paint atop the white calfskin base. Additional details include light grey suede overlays throughout and, in true Replica fashion, gum rubber outsoles.
The exclusive kicks are set to drop on June 29.
