Maison Margiela reaffirms its fascination with the tabi silhouette – creating yet another take on the cultural footwear model. Traditionally worn in Japan, tabi’s have been characterized as ankle socks that have a separate section for the big toe. As much a part of the high-end luxury house’s footwear archives as any other model on record, Martin Margiela himself, has continuously found ways to reimagine the boot since the early ‘90s. In looking ahead to next spring, the label offers a new iteration — ideal for upscale casual and formal-type ensembles.
The ankle boots are crafted from premium calf leather and sport a tonal black color scheme all the way around. Set to a price of $688 USD, you can find these available online now at such retailers as SHOWstudio.
