Maison Margiela Puts a Luxurious Spin on Skate Style Sneakers

Featuring the ubiquitous white sewn heel counter.

By //Footwear

Maison Margiela further explores its endeavors into luxury shoes with the release of two new hybrid-silhouettes that pull from quintessential staples.

Paying a lavish homage to tried-and-true skate style kicks from the likes of Vans, Margiela uses a black suede upper that wraps onto a buffed leather encompassing tonal stitching. The high-top varies with its ribbed collar and white detailing on the suede. The Italian label adds flourishes to the heels with a white sewn heel counter and decorative leather laces as the body sits atop a white sole.

Priced at $555 USD and the $625 USD, the sneakers can be purchased via SSENSE’s website. For more kicks, check out how CLOT and Nike have hinted at the possible reissue of the AF1 “1World.”
