The Maison Margiela x Reebok Classic Leather ‘Black’ reinterprets the classic silhouette via the French luxury house’s ‘Memory Of’ concept. A stealthy one-note finish is applied to the leather upper, which has been stripped of the eyestay, side stripes, heel overlay, and back tab. The memory of those familiar elements is visually encoded in what’s left behind: frayed threads, exposed felt liners, tattered remnants, and leftover punch-holes that once held stitching. Atop the tongue, a woven Reebok tag is slashed in half, revealing a Margiela label underneath. The sneaker rests on a matching black EVA midsole and durable rubber outsole.
