Maison Margiela shoes spring 2017 at Paris fashion week are sporty and strange. It’s an upside down remix of athletic leisure wear and streetwear to create something which is beyond your wild imagination but amazingly wearable.
The first look is the split-toe boots in the silhouette of scuba boots featuring printed fabric upper and sneaker rubber sole with a pull tab. Later in the show, they were updated with Velcro straps across upper, rhinestone encrusted or bold color patchworks in a further nod to sports footwear:
Then for dressy looks, there are curved heel thick platform brogues with chained up front and back zipper opening:
The summer sandals came in bright colors with a strap-through front and high edges around the insole. Multi-color outersoles were finished with a stitched welt. When paired with colorful socks, they looked particularly dramatic, fun and joyful:
For the clogs, screw head studs and Lucite base are refreshing approach, with rubber straps buttoned down on the side for more sports vibe:
Maison Margiela shoes spring 2017 are a fabulous collection of mix and match with an intention on the challenge of mixing up everyday clothes in ways we’ve never seen before.
“Our evolving proposition stimulates nostalgia and innovation in equal parts. We believe that familiarity must be unsettled and spontaneous, with an intrinsic strangeness” as explained by the show notes of Maison Margiela.
