If you’re a fan of both sports footwear silhouettes (such as the adidas NMD City Sock, Nike LunarEpic and Y-3 Qasa) and luxury fashion, you’re in luck: Balenciaga has just dropped the perfect pair of kicks for you.
Dubbed the “Speed Trainer,” the new silhouette features a knit, sock-like effect on the upper which lends itself to making the sneaker extremely lightweight, at only 240 grams. In the white midsole, you’ll find cushiony shock absorption accompanying memory sole technology. An embossed Balenciaga logo found on the outsole rounds out the luxurious look of the shoe.
Now available for pre-order from Balenciaga’s official site, the sneakers are set to ship January 10 of next year. The Balenciaga Speed Trainers will retail for $545 USD.
