Balenciaga introduces fully destroyed sneakers, the Internet cannot digest its price
On Monday, the Paris-based luxury fashion brand revealed their latest design, the Paris Sneaker, a limited release canvas sneaker for men and women. While the sneakers are available in a variety of colourways starting at $795 CAD/$625 USD, a “full destroyed” version of the shoe is also available — with a hefty price tag of $2,290 CAD/ $1,850 USD.
According to the brand, the Paris sneaker is “a retooled classic design which interprets mid-century athleticism and timeless casual wear in black, white, or red, with a white rubber sole and toe with distressed canvas and rough edges, affecting a pre-worn look.”.
According to Balenciaga, it is to suggest that the Paris sneaker is “meant to be worn for a lifetime.”
It may seem crazy, but the shoes are part of Balenciaga’s ever-growing presence, always creating controversial items that spark conversation.
