What is it about those distinctive, translucent heels that have been calling designers’ names this year? Naturally, Nike has long been a pioneer of the look with its signature Air technology, but high-fashion names like Prada and Maison Margiela have also put their own spin on the modernized detail recently. As for the latter, the French luxury house reworked its popular Tabi shoe with a “Bounce” heel last month, and has since followed up with the release of loafers that come stacked with the same transparent foundation.

The shoes are made of patent black leather for an elevated look, while the clear rubber Bounce sole gives it a slightly sporty edge for those who simply want to take their everyday attire up a notch. They’re made with a classic slip-on silhouette and feature a logo-printed insole, as well as tonal stitching all along the upper. Meanwhile, Margiela’s usual numbered branding along the heel nods to the loafers’ corresponding footwear range, “22.”

Maison Margiela’s Bounce Bubble-Heel Leather Loafers are priced at $845 USD and available now at Moda Operandi’s webstore.

The experimental label also took an updated approach with some of its recent sneakers, dropping a pair of inflated Puffer Sneakers in September.
