For its upcoming season, high fashion label Maison Margiela debuted a curious split-toe boot design and now, the brand is continuing the design movement with a pair of split-toe sneakers. The luxurious silhouette bears casual sensibilities and eerily reminds one of the iconic construction of Vans snickers. The tabi toe is definitely a point of interest that makes the offering radically unconventional for its category.

The low-top sneakers boast a canvas upper and when determining the aesthetic, Maison Margiela looked for inspiration toward traditional Japanese footwear, as well as classic skateboard shoes. The split-toe sneakers are available in two colorways — one is all-black, while the other is a combination of black and blue. The label's branding adorns the sole of the shoe, offering a stamp-like element to the model.
