Maison Margiela and Reebok Releasing New Collection
Maison Margiela and Reebok announce the Classic Leather Memory Of and Club C Memory Of: the newest trainers conceived through their ongoing creative dialogue. These shoes are the first two of five new sneaker designs launching this Spring 2022.
Highlighted in your choice of White or Black with the original cross-check peeled off to reveal the punch-holes that once held its stitching. In its place on the Classic Leather, a felt liner normally hidden from view becomes visible, constructed with premium leather and an EVA sole.
On the Club C, each applied leather element – including the heel tab, the cross-check, and the eyelet tab – has undergone a reduction process. Some are peeled off to uncover the silver pen markings hinting at the shoemaker’s process work, while others are cut down to their structural core by way of decortiqué. The shoe’s original webbing is remembered in a frayed stitch along the side, while the Reebok logo is slashed in half and fused with that of Maison Margiela – the memory of both labels in symbiosis. The Club C Memory Of is constructed in a premium leather and features a rubber cup sole with an EVA sole on the inside.
You can expect the Maison Margiela x Reebok Classic Leather and Club C to release at select Maison Margiela stores, maisonmargiela.com, and Reebok.com on March 25th. The retail price is $350. Make sure to check back with us for the rest of the Memory Of collection.
Release Date: March 25, 2022
