Luxury fashion house Maison Margiela works in collaboration with sportswear brand Reebok on a pair of unique hybrid shoes. The design made its debut during the Spring/Summer 2020 Artisanal show, tapping into components from iconic footwear by both brands.
The Tabi split-toe design is informed on the Instapump Fury by Reebok, explained by the fashion house that it is a statement shoe designed for the age of the cyber-industrial revolution. The pump tooling technology by the sportswear brand was originally developed in 1989 so that athletes are able to manually adjust the fit of the shoe. There are two iterations of the hybrid model -- one that boasts a classic silhouette referencing the Retro Fit shoe and the other has a heel
