Reinterpreting traditional Japanese socks from the 15th century, Maison Margiela first introduced the Tabi toe into its footwear line back in 1988. Becoming a staple of the brand ever since we have seen it make a resurgence in recent times, even seen on its latest Reebok collaboration. But for its latest drop, it’s the classic “Mary Jane” silhouette that gets the split-toe treatment.

Made in Italy, the sandal boasts a soft black leather on the upper with beige insoles adding to its elegant feel. The premium leather is complemented by the silver buckles which complete its stand-alone ankle and arch straps, and a slight-stacked heel to the rear makes it that bit more formal.

The “Mary Jane” sandal is a great summer accompaniment to Maison Margiela’s Tabi collection and is currently available to purchase from MatchesFashion.com retailing for £650 GBP (approximately $887 USD).
