Likely to be forever associated with a special edition of Nike Sportswear‘s Foamposite One – inspired by NASA and crafted in honor of Penny Hardaway for 2012’s NBA All-Star Weekend in Orlando – an interstellar “Galaxy” motif has been adopted by Maison Martin Margiela for a 2013 fall/winter edition of its classic replica sneaker. A juxtaposition of the retro and the contemporary, this take on the army-inspired ’70s low-top trainer features a premium python leather upper with a bold galactic graphic applied throughout. Finished with a gum rubber sole and lamb leather lining, Margiela’s own “Galaxy” kicks are now available online via oki-ni for £335 GBP (approximately $522 USD).
