Good news for vegans and those who live in non-arid climates: Maison Margiela has previewed three Tabi silhouettes made using a recycled matte rubber. Made in Italy, the three silhouettes are a side button ankle boot, Maryjane pump and a lace up oxford.
Offered in solid black or white, the split-toe shoes were previewed by fashion influencer and vintage store proprietor Brenda Weischer who spotted them on a visit to the label’s showroom in Paris. While there have been synthetic, vegan friendly versions of the beloved Tabi, this is the first time a rubber version is being offered.
Priced at $615, the oxford is now available at retail in one of four colors. As of now, there’s no pricing or timing for the boot and the pump.
Check out all three styles below.
