What I want – Maison Martin Margiela canvas Oxfords

March 22, 2012

It’s no secret that I like a nice pair of shoes and it’s also no secret that I’m a fan of the label Maison Martin Margiela. Well that combination brings us to these, yet another take on their classic Oxford shoes for Spring/Summer 2012.

Personally I love this style of shoe and own a pair in grey leather from a few years back. These to me look perfect for Summer – light in colour and no doubt weight due to the use of natural canvas that looks like (and quite possibly is) sack cloth.

I love the way this label uses different materials and think this mix of a fabric that’s quite utilitarian with a formal shoe style works really well, it’s a nice balance and something a little out of the ordinary, but at the same time, still very wearable.

The upper is further complimented by the natural leather lining and the tonal laces, all of which sits atop a beautiful natural leather sole. The sole unit on these is thicker than previous seasons which is a good thing and would hopefully give them a longer life.

These are available now from Trés Bien Shop here. For more information on the brand or to find your nearest stockist, go to the website here: Maison Martin Margiela.
