Reebok Now Makes Split-Toe Maison Margiela Sneakers
Maison Margiela collaborated with Reebok to recreate its iconic Tabi, updating it in sneaker form as part of its Spring/Summer 2020 collection. Reebok, an increasing presence at Paris Fashion Week, ignites the dialogue between a classic American sneaker and French haute couture.
The Tabi was first launched in 1988 and appeared on the runway as a pump, boot, ballet flat, and a mule. Today, the shoe is upgraded in a chunky sneaker style that mixes its shape with Reebok’s Instapump Fury model from 1994. The collaboration with Reebok actually marks Margiela’s first since creative director John Galliano joined the brand in 2014.
The artisanal values of the brand follow through as per usual and in the collaboration with Reebok, the quality is supreme. The shoe is made exclusively with the sole design native to the RetroFit. The sneaker features the logos of both brands and comes in six colorways, and is available in a flat and heeled option. The shoe will be available in Maison Margiela stores and will surely inspire a cult following throughout the year.
