This Trashed Maison Margiela Sneaker Costs $1,645

Exhorbantly-priced “destroyed” sneakers have been around for years. High-fashion brands like Golden Goose have a slightly odd propensity for releasing sneakers that look like they’ve been put through many months worth of hard wear and tear before they’ve even touched the pavement a single time, nodding in an offbeat way to a working-class aesthetic. These pre-distressed shoes are controversial, strangely unique, and always expensive-and now we’re getting a look at arguably the most outlandish distressed sneaker yet.

Maison Margiela has released a shocking new melted take on their “Fusion” silhouette that looks as if it’s falling apart at the seams with a chipped and scuffed outsole, large smears of glue on the midsole and upper, and even a duct-tape detail on the lateral side. An extremely abstract lacing sytstem adds to the shoe’s destroyed aesthetic, and for a final touch of ruin the white toebox is covered in black scuffs. Let us know what you think about these ravaged high-end sneakers, and if you’re a fan of the look, head over to Nordstrom now to grab a pair for a cool $1,645.
