While not nearly as coveted in the high-end sneaker world as their classic GAT-inspired high top, the Velcro strap model has been a long-time favorite from the Margiela line. And with Kanye wearing the model on his Margiela-heavy Yeezus tour, chances are that it's popularity will only increase.
We've seen many different materials used on this shoe over the years, including distressed leathers, Techno fabric, and even metallic gold and silver. This new version is done completely in black patent leather, and feature a premium leather lining. They are available now at Barneys, and retail for $890.
