Editor’s Notes: Maison Margiela unveiled its latest chunky sneaker, the Retro Fit, on social media late last week. The new model, which the brand says was “crafted from house codes established by creative director John Galliano,” is available online in three distinct colorways: “America silver,” white, and black.
According to the French luxury fashion house, the sneaker is a fusion of lo-fi design and hi-fi development. The result is an on-trend pair of kicks that are likely to appeal to sneakerheads thanks to their chunky silhouette and deconstructed detailing.
Retailing for $895, the Maison Margiela Retro Fit can be purchased through Margiela’s online store as part of its FW18-19 collection.
