Balenciaga Drops Its Runner Sneaker in Black and White
Although the Balenciaga Runner is only a few months old, the chunky, retro-inspired sneaker is already one of the designer label’s iconic silhouettes, and now it’s fallen in an eye-catching ‘Black / White’ colourway.
In keeping with the Demna Gvasalia aesthetic, the Runner features an intricate design featuring various layered panels made from leather materials, mesh, and multiple distressed components that come together for a design similar to ’90s running sneakers, such as if they had been worn regularly over the past 30 years.
The seams are slightly frayed, puddles of glue appear all around, and a distressed effect has been applied to the sole to give the shoes a worn and dirty look, while the toe size appears in a Tippex style for another twinkle. eye to aging DIY. However, these relaxed touches contrast with the Balenciaga branding, hitting the tongue, vamp, and heel, where more sizes can be found on the latter alongside a cord lace heel tab.
To complete the pair, the “RUNNER” brand has been stamped on the multi-piece sole. The Balenciaga Runner in “Black / White” can be seen above and purchased at Balenciaga stores and in line now for $ 1,150 USD.
If you thought this shoe was pricey, take a look at this rare Nike SB Dunk Low which sold for over $ 130,000.
