Balenciaga Are on Track for GoldRelease: 14 February 2020
Somewhat surprisingly, Balenciaga’s decision to use all-gold uppers on the Track isn’t the craziest thing ever. Just look at the design! The multi-layered faux-runner doesn’t shy away from detail with its intricate upper so, if anything, the lustrous sheen just brings it out even more.
Like the title of singer Sam Sparro’s 2008 one-hit wonder ‘Black and Gold’, this Track features splashes of ebony throughout the upper’s striped areas and outsole. Perhaps a vain attempt to tone things down a little, the contrast is welcome either way.
A big look demands a big wallet: they’re available now directly from Balenciaga for a mere $895. They must be worth their weight in gold...
