Model: Instapump Fury Tabi
Key Features: Each design blends elements from Margiela’s signature split-toed shoe, the Tabi, and Reebok’s trailblazing silhouette, the Instapump Fury. Outfitted with co-branding, the collaborative shoe from Maison Margiela and Rebook is optioned in six colorways for both the flat and heeled versions.
Release Date: September 2020
Editor’s Notes: After debuting an all-new footwear collaboration with Reebok last month, Maison Margiela just previewed the Tabi x Instapump Fury collab again as part of the French luxury fashion house’s ready-to-wear collection at Paris Fashion Week. As you can see in the pictures above, these shoes a completely wild. According to the French fashion house, the collaboration draws on key themes from the Artisanal show, as the result is a statement shoe for the age of the cyber-industrial revolution.
The hybrid shoe from Maison Margiela and Rebook pairs the split-toed upper of the Tabi with Reebok’s pump tooling. This technology was developed in 1989 to allow athletes to manually adjust the fit of the sneakers. For this particular silhouette, a small pump fills the patch that is wrapped around the upper, while a neighboring button is utilized to deflate it.
The flat–reminiscent of the former’s Retro Fit sneaker– and the heeled silhouettes will be available September 2020 in all six colorways including solid black and solid white in two textures, as well as yellow, black and red, and white, blue and red, which celebrate Reebok’s OG colorways.
A sheet of Hexalite improves flexibility and stability on the first model, while a Graphlite carbon shank connects the plateau and the heel of the sole on the heeled variation.
