Maison margiela and reebok reveal newest collaboration

by Stephen Garner

Maison Margiela and Reebok will release the Classic Leather Tabi in white and black later this week as part of their ongoing collaboration. Drawing on codes evolved by creative director John Galliano, the sneaker expresses the characteristics of the French fashion house through one of the sportswear brand’s most recognizable designs.

The new style of the collaboration – which debuted in early 2020 – represents the most distilled take on the codes of Maison Margiela and Reebok to date. Unifying innovation with heritage, fashion meets functionality in a contemporary design with a timeless appeal.

The Classic Leather Tabi splices two icons into one. Maison Margiela created the Tabi in 1988. With its recognizable split-toe construction – and the signature footprint it creates – it represents the deconstructive design philosophy key to the house. A formidable running shoe, the Classic Leather from 1983 has become a staple in the casual wardrobe and remains one of Reebok’s most respected and recognizable shoes.

For the collaboration, the Classic Leather was entirely rebuilt to accommodate the Tabi split-toe. The style is created in nappa leather with an EVA sole. It is made available in white and black. A Tabi toe sock is offered to complement both shoes.

Maison Margiela x Reebok Classic Leather Tabi sneakers, which retail for $300, will be available from February 26th in select Maison Margiela stores and on maisonmargiela.com and reebok.com.
