These natural Maison Margiela leather running shoes are impressive in their simplicity, as one of our favourite French Realist authors famously said: "To be simple is no small matter." Crafted in Italy from butter-soft leather, the trainers feature a comfortable rubber sole and all features have been pared back- indeed the laces have been concealed by two flaps of leather- to produce an elegant ultra-modern shoe. We're styling our Maison Margiela trainers with black chinos and knitwear to our next gallery opening.

MEET THE DESIGNER
Martin Margiela graduated from Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts, alongside the legendary Antwerp Six and soon after founded the house in his name but remained a secretive and mysterious figure throughout much of his time there. Maison Margiela are renowned for their avant-garde approach to design often featuring the process of deconstruction and subtle twists on convention. Garments and objects are often taken apart and redesigned with oversized proportions, manipulated shapes, ingenious wit and perplexing details to the amazement of their cult audience. In 2015 John Galliano joined the house as creative director.
