Sneakers are meant to be worn and certain silhouettes look even better with age. Take the Air Jordan 1 for instance—over time, the leather gets broken in, and a scuff for two adds a bit of character. While brands have skipped the wearing process by offering distressed styled sneaker, luxury brand Maison Margiela is taking it one step further with its destroyed sneakers.
Straight out of the box, the Maison Margiela Destroyed Future sneaker comes with scrapes, scuffs, torn leather, gaping holes and exposed foam padding. To top it off, the sneakers are held together with a multitude of staples. Luxury sneakers are often thought to be overpriced to begin with and this destroyed pair won't cost you any less than normal pair. With a $1425 price tag, many people are sure to be rubbed the wrong way.
If cracked leather uppers, yellowed midsoles, or flat-out beaters aren't your thing, the Maison Margiela got you covered. The Destroyed Future sneaker is available at Antonioli and other select retailers. Or you could save your $1400 by grabbing a staple gun, a pair of scissor and getting to work.
