It may have been the Ancient Greeks that were constantly casting things in Bronze (the shields for those Spartan guys’, those huge statues of Aphrodite, those weirdly-prevalent statues of naked boys), but it’s the Belgians at Maison Martin Margiela who’re bringing bronze into 2013.

They’ve flipped their signature high top sneakers into the color of the Greeks’ favorite metal and, though the shoes aren’t actually dipped into vats of molten bronze, the painting process leaves them with the metallic shimmer.

THEY’RE BASICALLY STATUES FOR YOUR FEET. THAT’S BALLER.

Get them for $950 from CNCPTS, right here.
