MM6 Maison Margiela Goes Gorpcore With Its Après Ski Boot

 

The anonymously-ran sub-label MM6 Maison Margiela is often overlooked in the fashion sphere — like most affordable off-shoots, it’s pigeonholed into the depths of fashion reserved for those looking for an entry point into something more luxurious. But what’s wrong with that when labels such as MM6 Maison Margiela are dropping shoes like this, the all-new Après Ski boot?

 

While the entire Fall/Winter 2023 collection is incredibly noteworthy — feeling closer than ever before to a “real” Maison Margiela offering — it’s the shoes that have taken the spotlight. More specifically, this Après Ski duo adheres to strict gorpcore trend rules, making it a well-timed footwear drop for the House.

MM6 Maison Margiela’s boot is reminiscent of a black nylon puffer jacket, using this very material to construct its upper. It comes with a padded round toe and a thick rubber sole unit, as well as the House’s signature branding embedded into the fibers on the lateral panel.
