Tabis" boots are nowadays Martin Margiela's inseparable accessories. However, while retaining this model, from 2000 onwards he devoted himself to the creation of more "classic" shoes from which he diverted the structure: pumps or santiags with torn off heels (spring-summer 2000), industrially pre-destroyed "after party" stilettos (autumn-winter 2005-06) or boots entirely wrapped in crepe (autumn-winter 2007-08)...

For his penultimate fashion show, Martin Margiela imagined these brown leather boots whose stiletto heels have been replaced by metal studs, head downwards.
