Replica runner in painted silver
These Replica runners are iconic to Maison Margiela going back to 1999. They have been in the collection ever since. Dating back from the '70, the original vintage ones were cleaned, painted and numbered by Margiela in the first period. Afterwards new ones were produced in different leathers and qualities, as Margiela has done with many other creations, using traditional techniques and craftsmanship, reinventing them.
This season the painted silver one is a new addition, it is clearly painted on top of a black coloured leather, crackly and looking vintage already while it is brand new. The silver comes back in other creations, both in ready to wear and accessories throughout the complete Autumn/Winter 2022-23 collection.
We have other colour versions too: the classic dirty white ones, the classic black version, an all leather brown one, a blue one, and a vieux-rose version.
They are lightweight but very solid, also they keep an elegant line to them with the oval shaped toe. You can wear them all year round, season after season.
The sole is in a supple rubber, the upper is full leather, to be worn with or without laces.
Sizing is normal. Made in Italy.
