For the past few seasons, Martin Margiela had been releasing solid collections of footwear, especially his sneakers which are extremely well-received. This season we see a strong line-up of motorcycle boots inspired hi-top sneakers other than the usual hi-top silhouette and the low-top model. The hi-top sneakers are kept clean in a monotone with padded leather upper that are strapped to the shoe body in a bondage/rock-and-roll style. Part futuristic and part grunge but 100% cool, the hi-top sneaker boots come in rusty red and olive colorways. Other interesting kicks from this collection include a black pony hair low-top with translucent gum soles a la Where The Wild Things Are. For those who are still looking for something less avant-garde and more mainstream, Margiela's standard hi-top is done up in red this season to match the falling leaves.
