Coming in tonal “Black” and “White,” the new style serves as a distilled take on the signature codes of the fashion house and sportswear name. Building on the evolved design language from Margiela Creative Director John Galliano, the Classic Leather Tabi is an innovation marked with heritage, where fashion and functionality collide for contemporary yet timeless appeal.
The collaboration sees Reebok’s iconic Classic Leather running shoe from 1983 reimagined with Maison Margiela’s Tabi created in 1988. Constructed of premium nappe leather, the entire silhouette has been deconstructed for the distinct split-toe design. Branding comes in the form of dynamic Vector logos formed by overlays on the sides, Reebok badges, co-branded tongue tags and Margiela’s stitching on the rear above the printed heel tabs.
Rounding up the design of the shoe is a plush matching sockliner and solid EVA sole that helps express the signature footprint that serves to mark the collision between Margiela and Reebok. Additionally, each shoe comes complete with a tabi toe sock for comfortable wear.
Priced at $300 USD, the Maison Margiela x Reebok Classic Leather Tabi will be available from February 26 on Maison Margiela and Reebok’s websites, with a wider release at select Maison Margiela locations and retailers like HBX.
