Introduced for 2005 spring/summer season "Replica" series, which was part and essential idea of the 14 line, contained a group of clothes that Margiela had found and loved, yet felt that their strength and allure were such that they should remain exactly as they are.
Only during that first season of summer 2005's, line 14 consisted footwear, as for the following season of winter 2005 company introduced line 22 dedicated only to the footwear. Just two shoe designs where established for that season as 14 replica wardrobe line and here you see one of them in dead-stock collectible condition. The white golfing shoes were part of many looks of that season as well as included in 2005 Pitti Imagine Uomo presentation in Italy that consisted selection of the favorite menswear pieces dating back to 1999.
They have become one of our beloved footwear items, as they express the conceptual replica character of the house, especially when combined in an outfit with Artisanal deconstructed quality.
