Expanding their ongoing collaboration, Maison Margiela and Reebok present the second evolution of the Tabi Instapump Fury. The shoe -first launched in early 2020- builds on the fusion between the sportswear studio’s classic Instapump Fury sneaker and the French Haute Couture house’s timeless split-toed Tabi shoe.
Spring-Summer 2021 introduces the Tabi Instapump Fury Oxford, a glazed calf leather low-top derby featuring Reebok‘s trademark The Pump Technology and a chunky sole; available in black, white and yellow colorways.
The Haute Couture values of Maison Margiela inspire a collaboration devoted to expert and progressive craftmanship; fusing the technical inventions of Reebok with the continuous analysis of the relationships between humanity and technology in the digital age; themes central to the practice of Maison Margiela.
Hybridising the most familiar shoe codes of the two collaborations, the Instapump Fury –Reebok‘s trailblazing sneaker from 1994- unites with Maison Margiela‘s signature Tabi from 1988. The Tabi’s split-toed calfskin upper creates the foundation for the new derby; morphed with Reebok‘s The Pump Technology, an inflation technology developed in 1989 to offer athletes a customized, locked-in fit. The transformative function echoes elements key to the philosophies of Maison Margiela.
The derby is placed on a sole design native to the Retro Fit, the sneaker launched by Maison Margiela in 2018; while the heeled boot interprets the Instapump Fury. Like the original Reebok sneaker, the outer-sole and midsole are constructed from rubber and expansive foam across different colour variations. For optimised flexibility and stability, a sheet of Hexalite is integrated in the sole.
