Maison Martin Margiela is known for minimalism with a dash of grunge. So it’s no surprise that its new, limited-edition “Replica” sneakers exclusively for Barneys follow that formula precisely. First, the Belgian brand found its inspiration: in this case 1970s GATs (German Army Trainers) worn by West German soldiers and originally hailing from Austria. The classic sports shoes were then reproduced as faithfully as possible, fashioned from lambskin and calf split and fixed with a label explaining their historical origin and time period. The MMM twist comes in with the color, however. Splashed Jackson Pollock-style with red, gray, blue or black paint, the “Replica” trainers are as effortlessly cool as they are quality. Retailing at $435, these puppies aren’t cheap—but then again, the truly covetable items never are.
