Margiela and Reebok birth iconic mega-sneaker

Words by Jasmine Wallis

When two become one.

If you thought the ugly sneaker would die out in 2020, then you have been sorely mistaken.

Creative director of Maison Margiela, John Galliano, launched a collaboration in Paris yesterday between Margiela, creator of the Tabi shoe, and Reebok to create a shoe hybrid straight out of the sneakerhead future.

Both shoes are iconic in their own right.

Although seen on supermodels and street style stars and supermodels have donned a renaissance of the silhouette recently, Margiela’s Tabi was debuted way back in 1988 and the Instapump Fury sneaker has been coveted since 1994.

The line marks Galliano’s first collaboration since taking the helm at Maison Margiela in 2014, it was debuted on the runway of the brand’s haute couture collection, and is the first time the couture chief has worked with a mainstream brand.

Not many details have been shared about the hybrid, apart from what was seen on runways, which includes the shoes spotted in black and white styles.

Keep your eyes peeled for the drop of the decade.
