Each unit has been both sculpted and modeled by hand, fired, then hand painted to affect the subtle colors of a worn shoe using a traditional Italian majolica technique, then fired again. Like the real sneaker, there are signs of wear and movement codes, such as sporty layered textures, distressed fabric edges, exposed stitching, and intentionally bubbling technical adhesive.
Balenciaga objects are produced outside of the fashion collection calendar and range from exclusive works of art to practical, everyday objects, all of which are timeless. A life-size Balenciaga Track sculpture in silver metal was the first item in the series, followed by several sneaker styles reimagined in laser-etched glass cubes.
