Editor’s Notes: The Maison Margiela Fusion sneakers, released as part of the fashion house’s FW18 collection, look like they’ve either been lifted from the set of a sci-fi movie or attacked with a hot glue gun. But in the best way possible. Oh, and A$AP Rocky was spotted rocking the sneakers at an ALYX afterparty in Paris during Fashion Week.
While this design isn’t quite as distressed as last year’s Future “destroyed sneaker,” it’s still off-the-charts nuts. The rounded toe and heel look like they’re held together by duct tape, while the sole seems to have been dipped and set in plaster.
Would you cop these sneakers for a cool $1,645? Let us know in the comments.
