Balenciaga have ditched their usual modus operandi and done something sensible. We’re sure that as they were looking at Speed Trainer upgrades, the drawing board was hit with a number of ideas: should they add another couple of soles? Cover them in dirt? Slap on some DHL logos? Luckily, someone in the room had sense and suggested laces because laces are sensible.
The fact that they’re largely useless on a sneaker sock is beside the point; we’re making progress. You can grab these laced Speed Trainers now from Matches.
