Sporty Color-Blocked Sandals

These New Maison Margiela Sandals Boast a Statement Cork Design

These Maison Margiela sandals blend a unique combination of different styles, with the subtle leather straps offering an elegant aesthetic, while the chunky color-blocked platform heels mix together cork and athletic outsoles that provide plenty of support and traction.

The leather straps are stitched into the soles with a lighter-hued thread, which is brought out again on the backs of the heels to offer some more uniformity to the design. At the ankle is a sleek silver buckle, which allows the Maison Margiela sandals to be tightened or loosened with ease.

The unique sandals are currently available from luxury retailers like Farfetch, where they sell for approximately $785 USD for a pair and ship internationally.
