Maison Martin Margiela Sci-Fi Sneaker “Metallic”

Carte Blanche X Maison Martin Margiela Sci-Fi Sneaker “Metallic”

A staple silhouette to its footwear program, Maison Martin Margiela introduce the latest adaptation of the Sci-Fi Sneaker. Living up to its futuristic title, the Sci-Fi Sneaker “Metallic” version is draped in a lustrous patent leather upper. The only deviation from the solitary silver construction is a low profile gum outsole and an interior white leather lining. While an official release date is forthcoming, expect this iteration to garner significant attention this holiday. I personally think these are very DOPE.
