Why does this keep happening? More Margiela shoes I want and can’t afford. I’m not even sure what I’m looking at. I think there is a shoe hiding underneath this sort of leather curtain draped and hammered on top. Is it a heel or a wedge? A wedge, I guess, at least from up close. 
The brilliance of Margiela is that he (or whoever designs there) always finds a way to mess with your head. A little tweak here, a little tweak there and something that is quintessentially classic begins a new life as an optical puzzle. The great illusionist. A designer’s designer. 

The white one looks like a marble sculpture of sorts.
