For Fall 2012, Maison Martin Margiela has taken a mixed-media approach to its 22 high-top. The result is never jarring however; as with the label’s other offerings, the end product is a harmonious and sophisticated mixture of textures, sheens and shades. Thoroughly modern, the 22′s coordinated material collage consists of fall-appropriate burgundy patent leather, quilted white suede on the side panels and heel, premium black leather throughout, and silver trimming. These sneakers also feature a luxuriously padded ankle area and tongue and details like the label’s signature white stitch, the entire upper package sitting atop a classic Margiela gum rubber sole. Look for the made-in-Italy 22 sneakers now at oki-ni.
