Maison Martin Margiela loves their white — the more white, the better. Taking this mindset to an extreme, MMM took some already off-white suede high-top sneakers and slathered them in white paint, creating their aptly named White Painted High-tops for their Spring/Summer 2011 collection. The shoes feature a natural gum rubber sole which is partly covered with white paint that has dripped on it from the upper, and are laced up with beige cotton shoelaces. As usual with Margiela, everything is subtle but the price: $530 (£335).
