Maison Martin Margiela presents this attention-grabbing high-top patent leather sneakers in metallic pewter. Details include a concealed brown lace up closure with extended tonal leather eyerow, tonal leather logo patch at tongue. Made in Italy, these sneakers are available now at Ssense for roughly $700 USD.
From the Maison Martin Margiela Autumn/Winter 2012 Pre-Collection we present the latest versions of the brand’s military low top sneaker. As usual they have interesting new material ideas and present the sneaker in an ‘enamel effect’ option in two colors and in two complete gum versions, featuring gum all over the upper, which obviously results in an interesting look.
A fresh drop for the Spring/Summer 2012 season, Maison Margiela has reinvented their replica sneaker, giving it a digital overhaul. The pixelated sneaker features a woven canvas exterior, with a mixture of black and white squares dispersed from toe to heel. By incorporating elastics attached to the tongue, your foot will stay snug and in place without the use of laces. Reminiscent of something right out of the film Tron, Maison Margiela’s Pixelated Sneaker is an innovative take on a classic design.
Laceless designs have been coming to prominence as of late, and Maison Martin Margiela has long been one of the front runners in trend. This latest release, a laceless leather loafer, is a pretty cool piece for Summer. Featuring a distressed leather finished in a gold, mustard, & brown patchwork pattern, these shoes certainly aren’t for the sartorially shy. Still, they’re sure to be a piece that would set off any outfit, particularly one that is otherwise conservative.

Maison Martin Margiela has already released their fall 2011 lookbook, but we wanted to focus on the Replica sneaker for a moment. One of the fashion house’s biggest hits has been its “Replica” series which sets out to create new, high-quality reinterpretations of vintage pieces found all over the world by their globetrotting design team. For the new seasonl, MMM introduces a pair of black suede low-top sneakers with an elastic, laceless closure system as well as a single signature Margiela stitch on the upper heel. Available now through Maison Martin Margiela stockists.
We tend to hit Maison Martin Margiela much more on The Carry than we do here on The Shoe Buff. Nevertheless, we just found these latest fall 2011, Italian leather boots from the ‘Maison’.
In a military jackboot style, the upper is covered with a detachable woolen sock. A trend we’d seen on several women’s styles last winter, this is a manly take on the same idea. Indeed the wool is intended as an aesthetic detail as much as it is an insulator. Fastened in place with four pressed snaps, when the sock is removed the boot reveals a soft leather lining.
These days it seems no one can properly predict the weather. Having functionally versatile footwear is always a plus. Available online.
