Editor’s Notes: The latest Maison Margiela SS20 footwear drop revels in the infinite forms of the house’s famous tabi boot. Since its debut in 1998, Margiela's iconic and divisive silhouette has received numerous re-interpretations and in-house tributes including a Reebok Instapump fury collaboration, a neoprene sandal, and even a Tabi-shaped leather handbag.
We dove deep into the appeal of the Margiela tabi in our podcast, mapping out the cleft-toed shoe's cultish appeal and how it became a signifier of discerning taste in a world of flashy logos. Check out the entire collection above and shop it via the link below.
