Made in Italy, the shoe is constructed with sleek black Nappa calfskin and suede. Maison Margiela’s arithmetic logo is stamped at the top of the tongue, followed by a set of tonal laces that cover the forefoot. Delicate suede panels appear at the backstay, eyelets, sidewalls and toecap, offsetting the smooth textures of the shoe’s full-grain leather uppers. All of these details rest over a darkly tinted “Black Caviar” midsole, cushioned with the label’s Super Bounce Air technology.
Maison Margiela’s High-Top Replica “Black Caviar” is currently available on SSENSE’s website for $960 USD.
