Model: Classic Leather Tabi
Release Date: February 26
What the Internet Is Saying: The silhouette's initial reception was generally mixed, though the shoe got a lot of attention thanks to Kim Kardashian teasing it on her stories. The most commonly asked question: “Wtf kind of socks do you wear with that?” The answer? Tabi socks.
What We’re Saying: Reebok’s fashion collaborations are second to none, as the New England sportswear company is not averse to throwing out the rule book and trying something different. Following a Tabi, platform InstaPump Fury, Reebok and Maison Margiela have given the Classic Leather a split-toe makeover.
The Classic Leather Tabi first released in Margiela’s signature hand-painted “Bianchetto” aesthetic, and now, two new colorways are on the horizon. The collaborative shoe will soon be available in tonal white and black iterations, crafted from nappa leather and featuring an EVA sole.
Both the Tabi and the Classic Leather were born in the ’80s (1988 and 1983, respectively) and are central to each brand’s lasting identity. This collaboration is therefore the coming together of two era-defining icons, and couldn’t be more fitting.
Look for the Maison Margiela x Reebok Classic Leather Tabi to drop in white and black colorways through Highsnobiety Shop on February 26.
