Maison Margiela showcased the new look on the runway today during its Paris Couture Week presentation, a silhouette that marries its classic split-toe Tabi with the aggressive and futuristic Reebok Instapump Fury. The collab, according to the French luxury fashion house, plays on the idea of analyzing “the conversation between humanity and technology in the digital age.” Maison Margiela proclaimed the look the “statement shoe for the age of the cyber-industrial revolution.”

The look features the signature split-toed calfskin upper of the Tabi, the Pump tech from Reebok and sit atop reimagined sneaker-style midsoles and outsoles (one flat and the other heeled). The collab is also executed with classic Reebok technologies such as Hexalite cushioning and a Graphlite carbon shank. Aesthetically speaking, the shoe features both Maison Margiela and Reebok’s logos — the luxury brand’s stitched in white on the back of the upper and the athletic company’s Vector branding embroidered on the heel.
The look will debut in six colorways, which includes nods to the original looks of the sneaker delivered by Reebok starting in 1994.
