No, this isn’t a sneak peek at one of the shoes from the upcoming H&M + Maison Martin Margiela collab collection (we could only be so lucky); instead it’s a pair of paint-splattered leather high top sneakers from Maison Martin Margiela that I believe I spotted someone in Paris wearing.
Thing is, I can’t be 100% sure if it’s the same pair since the guy who was wearing it could genuinely have been an artist or someone who works in the paint industry. Which could also explain why this particular pair is so cool, with all the splats and spills in all the right places.
Priced at GBP355, you can now buy it online via Mr Porter. Or pay much less and create your own pair, but I’ve a feeling it just won’t be the same. Ironic, isn’t it?
