Release Date: Available now
Editor’s Notes: Though Maison Margiela’s split-toe has been around for 30 years (it first stepped onto the scene in 1988), the luxury label’s signature feature is still very much present on the luxe footwear scene, driving the fashion-conscious left and right.
To celebrate the Tabi’s 30th anniversary, Margiela recently dropped a special capsule, in collaboration with Montreal-based fashion destination SSENSE, that’s all about the divisive silhouette. The celebratory line includes everything from Tabi-shaped accessories to new iterations of the shoe. And the new Tabi offerings don’t stop there.
Made from grained leather, this latest Margiela sneaker fuses the brand’s signature toe-piece with a very familiar high-top silhouette. The shoe’s split-toe comes with a glossy rubberized trim, also featuring logo-printed detailing on the tongue and side, with stitching details throughout.
Having just landed at SSENSE, these new Tabi sneakers can be yours for $675, and are also available in a low-top version. No matter what you think of the Tabi, you can’t deny the head-turning effect of a pair of split-toe Margiela shoes. Click below for a closer look.
