Fusing three highlighted styles of today’s fashion – sneakers, stars, and skin – Maison Martin Magiela‘s latest creation is sure to be a hit for the classiest and the hood rich. The snake skinned sneakers will be the brightest sneakers in the streets and the best part? You don’t have to be a star to wear them.
Maison Martin Margiela rings a bell in every educated, fashion-passioned individual’s head – for me it has been the brand that I only hope to clad myself in one day – but if this is your first time hearing about it, then you chimed in at the perfect time. The Galaxy Print Leather Sneakers are made for the man who can mix the trends with the timeless, and rock them no matter the context.
The European style sneakers are covered in snakeskin and decorated with a galaxy pattern that will have you dreaming for days. With parallel fitted laces and a thick rubber sole, you can go from roaming the streets to arriving at dinner reservations not only a la mode, but also without feeling like you’ve worn your feet down to the sole within a matter of hours. The shoes aren’t for everyone, and if you’re looking to purchase the flashy pair just for the name, please refrain from doing so. But if you are genuinely appreciative of the art and beauty of such a pair, indulge yourself in them via Mr. Porter and other select retailers.
