Maison Margiela and Reebok announce their latest collaboration which includes the Classic Leather and Club C models as part of a “Memory Of” collection. These are the first two of five new sneakers that will be released this spring 2022.
Both are dressed in white or black with their original cross-check peeled off to reveal the perforations that once held its stitching together. In its place over the classic leather, a felt lining normally hidden from view becomes visible, constructed from premium leather and featuring an EVA sole with a rubber outsole.
On the Club C, every applied leather element – including the heel tab, counter tile and eyelet tab – has undergone a reduction process. Some are peeled off to uncover silver pen marks hinting at the cobbler’s process work, while others are stripped to their structural core by peeling. The original strap of the shoe is recalled in a frayed point on the side, while the Reebok logo is cut in two and fused with that of Maison Margiela – the memory of the two labels in symbiosis. It is made of premium leather and features a rubber sole with an EVA sole inside.
Look for the Maison Margiela x Reebok Classic Leather and Club C releasing March 25 at select Maison Margiela stores and on maisonmargiela.com as well as Reebok.com. The retail price is set at US$350. More information regarding the remaining silhouettes of Memory Of will be revealed later this season.
