Balenciaga - Spring/Summer 2010 - Sneaker In Patchwork Of Leather


The House of Balenciaga came a long way, not simply survived a tumultuous century since 1918, but also traveled through cities, embodying different styles and evolving into one of the most coveted global luxury labels. The mention of the work Balenciaga easily nuances with the extraordinary silhouettes and beautifully intense detailing in its dresses for women, and recently, its iconic Motorcycle Bag introduced in 2001. The label's work in leather is uncompromising and quite frankly, rather stellar. Bringing the same dedication to leather in producing its accessories and bags to shoes for men, Balenciaga plays up its street factor and introduces several colorways of a hi-top leather sneaker -- Sneaker In Patchwork Of Leather. Quite literally, the opulent hi-top sneaker comes pieces together from patchworks of leather in different patterns, shine and distress. The navy version here features a mix of navy reptilian print leather with suede, hive-prints and scrunch-distressed panels tied down with stark white laces and sitting atop a matching tonal navy rubber sole. Subtle yet wild, Balenciaga successfully injects a dose of urban energy into luxury and class for men this Spring/Summer.
