Last season, Maison Margiela debuted their latest take on the chunky sneaker trend, and it was one of their most head-turning yet. Dubbed the Fusion Sneaker, the silhouette was a divisive masterpiece of industrial design.
Complete with copious amounts of visible glue, epoxy and paint, there’s nothing else like it.
The Fusion Sneaker returns to the brand’s lineup for SS19, in a myriad of off-white shades. Asymmetrical, overlapping panels in a variety of materials — from luxurious leather to honeycomb mesh — make up the uppers, while the laces are cut, frayed and knotted together, ridding them of their functionality but adding to the deconstructed aspect of the sneaker.
