As 2015 wraps up and brands slow down on sneaker releases, these knit running shoes by Maison Margiela may prove to be the year's most unorthodox and imaginative.

At first glance this sneaker may look like a cozy house slipper, but it is actually designed with optimal athletic performance in mind. Aesthetically, the light gray colorway features a unique knitted detailing on the exterior, resembling a cable-knit sweater. The shoe is also lace-less, allowing for the flush felt texture to remain consistent throughout the entire shoe. This unique knit running shoe may not appeal to all, but the high-end brand has been known to have quite a dedicated following.

With Christmas around the corner, this luxury running shoe may just be the perfect last minute gift for the sneaker heads in your life.
