The house’s SS21 show debuted the new silhouette, which fuses the Tabi with the sneaker’s trademark Pump technology and a retro derby shoe
While we can’t be thankful for many things that came out of 2020, one thing that brought a little more light into our lives emerged at Maison Margiela’s SS20 Couture show – a new, must-have shoe created in collaboration with Reebok that took the form of the Tabi Instapump Fury.
An instant fave for its retro aesthetic, it melded Margiela’s signature Tabi boot with Reebook’s 90s Instapump Fury silhouette and came in all-black, all-white, and a colour version that paid homage to the OG sneaker.
You might be thinking: ‘How the hell could they improve on that?’ Enter stage left: the Tabi Instapump Fury Oxford. Taking all the best parts of the original hybrid (i.e. all of it), the new silhouette throws a low-top leather derby into the mix too.

The newest iteration of the collaboration is brought to life by artist and photographer Jean-Vincent Simonet.
Known for his colourful, trippy work, Simonet’s series of still life portraits of each colourway melds the retrofuturistic vibe of the Instapump Fury Oxford with more natural elements – nestled among it all like a flower from a faraway planet.
The Maison Margiela x Reebok Tabi Instapump Fury Oxford officially drops on April 30 – get your hands on yours here before they concoct up the next iteration.
