Memory-Inspired Leather Sneakers

Maison Margiela and Reebok Launch the 'Memory Of' Collaboration

— October 5, 2022 — Fashion
Maison Margiela and Reebok have collaborated on two new iterations of the ‘Classic Leather’ and ‘Club C’ as a part of their ‘Memory Of’ line. The first version features leather paneling that partially hides a transparent nylon underlay, while an unfinished toe box gives this iteration a rugged look. A standout detail is zig-zag stitching on the interiors, while the rest of the sneaker opts for a minimalist approach through an all-black or all-white color palette.

The second iteration of the ‘Classic Leather’ and ‘Club C’ reimagines the sneakers through a deconstructive lens, drawing inspiration from the idea of familiarity that is still evident within a garment or accessory. In other words, “an echo of something that once was, evoked within the creation of something new.”

The new ‘Classic Leather’ and ‘Club C’ “Memory Of” are now available on the Maison Margiela website.
