What’s the story of this thing?
– I bought these Martin Margiela Tabi Boots in 2004 when I was working in London. An edition in thin gloves leather, a low cut boot with the significant split toe.
Why is it special to you?
– They are of such good quality. A beautiful object and amazing comfort – perfect combination. The leather is very dark and they have aged so beautifully. These shoes has been worn more than anything else I own. Martin Margiela was a huge inspiration for me when I started, mainly for the poetry, the tactile poetry that was such a big part of what he did. It had such a soul. Such beauty. I have never bought anything else that I have loved and worn so much.
