As shown during Maison Margiela’s Fall/Winter 2020 runway show at Paris Fashion Week, the eight-piece collection fuses Reebok’s trailblazing sneaker from 1994 with Margiela’s signature split-toe tabi design from 1988. Coming in two heights — one flat-heeled version and another with a block heel — the sneaker-boot hybrids will be available in all-black or all-white in homage to Margiela’s color palette, as well as ones that pay respect to Reebok with yellow, black and red, or white, blue and red versions.
The sneaker-boots are a perfect marriage of the two brands, utilizing the Instapump Fury‘s signature rubber midsole design that sports a sheet of Hexalite in inside. The heeled version uses a Graphlite carbon shank that connects the plateau and the heel of the sole together.
Additionally, the silhouette keeps the Instapump Fury’s expansive foam mechanism which controls how the shoe will fit. Maison Margiela adds its classic single white stitch at the rear of the collar of each pair, while Reebok’s Vector logo is embroidered on the heel.
The Maison Margiela x Reebok Tabi Instapump Fury shoe will retail for $1,150 USD for the flat version, while the heeled pair will cost $1,490 USD. Pairs are releasing on September 23, 2020, and will be available from Maison Margiela’s website and in its stores worldwide.
