The Demna Gvasalia-designed sneaker is constructed from faux leather and mesh, which combine to create a multi-layered, paneled upper that oozes technical trekking vibes. Panels weave in and out of each other, while black has been used to highlight the depths and shadows around the shoe’s upper.
As with many of Balenciaga’s designs, branding is center-stage. The house’s moniker appears on a 3M panel on the medial front-quarter, on the outsole, and its “BB” insignia is even embossed into the sole unit’s toe. A final touch of branding appears in black on the tongue.
Take a look at the latest Balenciaga Track Sneaker in “Silver” in the gallery above, and pick up a pair for yourself at retailers such as Browns for $756 USD.
