Maison Martin Margiela 2012 Pre-Fall Paint Splatter Replica Sneakers

Maison Martin Margiela has long expressed a tendency for experimenting with various paint

Maison Martin Margiela has long expressed a tendency for experimenting with various paint application methods across the uppers of many of its shoes. Whether the aesthetics are something that would fit your personal style or not, the label’s respectable willingness to venture into a more artistic realm has allowed its footwear segment to stand apart from many of the other high-end contemporary sneaker designers. After early-2012 brought a hand-painted Hi-Top Sneaker, the brand today releases the latest pre-Fall 2012 Splatter Replica Sneakers. Both silhouettes are mocked up in neutral leather hues and set atop low profile gum outsoles. Aside from the tonal suede and leather panels that comprise the upper, the base of each shoe is rather unassuming. Hand-applied, the prominent design tenants see splattered paint of varying colors applied to the anterior portion of the shoe. Hitting mainly along the toe box, hits of paint are also seen along the midsole, tongue and ankle.
