In a world where sneakers have every extra accessory under the sun — we’re talking jewellery, hot glue dribbles and multiple soles — you can forget that there’s pleasure in simplicity. Despite being a devotee of the more-is-more school, Balenciaga is here to remind us.
They’re going back to their sneakersock roots and bringing us a triple drop of Speed Trainers, which should please fans of the good ol’ days. Coming in black, navy or red (we’d call it orange, if we’re being honest), each knitted upper is matched with a tonal sole. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
These are available for pre-order on Barney’s now.
