As is the case with so many luxury shoe brands, the ever-elusive Maison Margiela label continues to create statement-making pieces including the sock-inspired Thick-Sole Rib-Knit sneakers. With the release of this trendy footwear earlier this year, Maison Margiela’s avant-garde and unconventional take on streetwear has been taken out of the runway and into the streets.
MM6 Maison Margiela Thick-Sole Rib-Knit sneakers come from the edgy and sporty collection of the nonconformist Paris-based brand. Nothing screams minimalist than Maison Margiela’s spin on the snockers trend. Boasting a rib-knit upper with a thick white midsole and rubber outsole, these sock-inspired shoes resembles your good old high-top sneakers – only it was reworked to ditch the need for laces. No worries though, because these shoes feel like a hug in sneakers. Its knit upper added with clever cushioning around the heel and the ankle, this pair ensures it can lock your feet in place once worn even without the use of laces. At a glance, these Thick-Sole Rib-Knit sneakers capture the heart of fashion folks with its sleek, minimalist design while its comfort and performance captures the attention of athletic footwear enthusiasts.
Minimalist, time-efficient, and fuss-free, snockers is a trend worth a try. If you can’t commit to what arguably is the most comfortable sneaker trend of the year, though, MM6 Maison Margiela Thick-Sole Rib-Knit sneakers may not be the most practical buy given its high price point. However, when you decide to invest on these sneakers, make sure you get a half size lower than the normal because they tend to run large in size.
