Maison Margiela upset the fashion industry nearly 25 years ago when he introduced his now-iconic Tabi silhouette, a split toe-styled footwear staple that still, to this day, has yet to be copied. A concept so outlandish and so uniquely Margiela that it’s hard not to look in amazement at the renown designer’s off-kilter work. This time, the Tabi boot is arriving in a fitting distressed suede and leather iteration, offering it up in Cow and Sheep leather that stays true to the split-toe odyssey.

The newly released iteration dons a 60mm heel, sporting a variety of typography hits on the lateral side. In deconstructed fashion, the suede upper is met with a loose-laying smooth leather in brown, finally finishing off with a similarly colored outsole. Details include a concealed side hook closure on the medial side, as well as intentional distressing that’s unique on each pair.

If you’re interested in purchasing the made-in-Italy Tabi boots, head over to LUISAVIAROMA’s web store where they are currently retailing for $1,455 USD.
