Maison Martin Margiela x Barney's New York Paint Sneakers

In case you haven't noticed, that whole Pollack-y paint splatter thing is having a moment now. And these new "Replica" line sneakers — a collaboration between disheveled-but-sharp master Maison Martin Margiela and Barney's New York — are one way the trend is being done right. MMM took their classic lace-less trainers, which were originally pulled on by West German soldiers in the 70s, and updated them a bit with some methodically aimless strokes of matte paint. They're not for everyday, but they're perfect for roughing up your weekend look a bit.
