Sartorially speaking, every country has their “thing”—a fashion forte mastered by none other. The French have a knack for elegant haute couture. The Americans perfect durable sportswear. Two opposite ends of the style spectrum find common ground in this season’s most exciting fusion of aesthetics. Parisian powerhouse Maison Margiela and American activewear brand, Reebok join forces for the Classic Leather Tabi Decortiqué Low, a chicly reimagined runner for the modern trendsetter.

Showcasing Maison Margiela’s trademark décortiqué technique, the sneaker transforms into a cage-like form as side leather panels are stripped away to highlight the core construction. The renowned luxury house revisits its iconic splittoe design, derived from their signature Tabi shoe circa 1988. The shoe is available in monochromatic black, white, and red leather, and is layered with the Bianchetto technique—a Maison Margiela-exclusive process that features hand-executed white paint and artful chipping with wear. Think streetwear edge meets timeless high fashion, a contemporary classic.
