After Kim Kardashian teased a first look recently, Maison Margiela and Reebok have come together to officially launch the CLassic Leather Tabi. The design is a combination of two famed Maison Margiela house codes with one of Reebok’s best-known silhouettes.
The stand-out feature of the sneaker is the Tabi split-toe construction, first introduced by Maison Margiela in 1988. The Classic Leather silhouette was entirely rebuilt to create the split-toe design, while the sneaker itself is constructed from nappa leather and an EVA midsole. Finishing off the design, the sneaker’s black leather base is covered in a hand-painted white coating to recall Margiela’s “Bianchetto” technique that chips with wear.
The sneaker also features hits of branding, including a Reebok logo on the lateral side. The tongue hosts both Reebok’s signature vector logo and Margiela’s classic branding.
In other footwear news, Reebok also recently gave the DMX Trail Shadow a ’90s-inspired hiking rework.
