Let's be honest, hip-hop was first introduced to Maison Martin Margiela when Jay-Z rapped about it in "Run This Town." He and Kanye West were even spotted wearing sneakers from the fashion house soon after. It looks like the hype around the shoes never really went away. We've recently noticed a few hip-hop artists rock the Mirror Sneakers by the Belgian brand.
Swizz Beatz, who is definitely no stranger to ultra-expensive kicks, celebrated New Year's Eve in a pair of the metallic leather sneakers. Guess he liked them so much that he even picked up a pair for his wife Alicia Keys for some good old 'his and hers' footwear.
Early last month Busta Rhymes made an appearance on BET's 106 & Park also wearing the same pair of shoes. More recently, P. Diddy was spotted arriving at the airport in Paris for Fashion Week in the Margiela sneakers.
The chrome look might be a bit much, but we salute you if you can pull it off. You can cop a pair of the sneakers now at Saks Fifth Avenue's online shop for $680.
