Arguably one of the most unique additions to the footwear realm in recent memory, Maison Margiela’s Fusion Low sneakers take deconstructed maximalism to the outer-rims of design through its off-kilter hodgepodge of diverse materials. From the super glue that drips down the shoe to sewn on duct tape additives, the sneaker is haphazardly constructed in a meticulously avant-garde fashion.
Various pieces of the shoes design appear to be torn off and then seemingly re-attached, with cracked paint and immense scuffing adding to a uniquely pre-worn look. In this specific “Bubblegum Mix” iteration, a swathe of pink, gum-like material marks the midsole. Carbon fiber panels meet the lacing system, overlaying the upper that is constructed mainly of cow leather in white. The outer cage, which can be seen via the medial side, utilizes a similar pink, which various overlapping attachments offering a contrast. Finishing off the design is an asymmetrical lacing system which goes between the carbon fiber panels and leather eyelets.
