Balenciaga HK is credited with revolutionizing women’s fashion in the mid-20th century and, in recent years, has contributed revolutionary designs to a quickly shifting landscape in the sneaker industry. Under Demna Gvasalia’s tutelage, the brand took full advantage of trends such as the sock sneaker, chunky footwear, and the current retro-sportswear craze. In a few short years, the high-end brand went from just another luxury brand making sneakers to a leader in the space.
Balenciaga Triple S “Bred’
The Balenciaga Triple S’ defining feature is its quadruple-stacked sole unit, which gives the sneaker a very bulky shape. The upper is constructed of a mesh base with leather overlays at the sides, heel, and toe box. Balenciaga branding is found on the side of the shoe, while oversized rope laces add to the exaggerated theme of the sneaker.
Balenciaga Track 2
The Balenciaga Track 2 is even more complex than its predecessor, featuring an upper composed of 176 separate pieces. A mesh base is covered in countless layers made of a mix of synthetic and leather overlays. Track 2 branding is present on the tongue, while Balenciaga branding is on the side and embossed on the toe of the outsole. A bulky, multi-layered mid- and outsole combination round out a techy look.
Balenciaga Triple S Clear Sole
The Balenciaga Triple S’ defining feature is its quadruple-stacked sole unit, which gives the sneaker an exaggerated shape. The upper is constructed of a mesh base with leather overlays at the sides, heel, and toe box. Balenciaga branding is found on the side of the shoe, while oversized rope lace adds to the exaggerated theme of the sneaker.
Balenciaga Speed Trainer
The Balenciaga Speed Trainer features a sock-like, knit upper in all black with white branded detailing on the outside of the toe. That upper sits on a thick, white midsole. A black rubber outsole completes the greyscale look.
Balenciaga Speed Trainer Laces
Featuring a fully-knit, sock-like upper, Balenciaga has added a lacing option to its popular Speed Trainer. This sees the upper reduced in height. The thick, performance-inspired sole unit stays the same.
Where are Balenciaga shoes made?
Balenciaga sneakers are made in one of two places: Italy and China. Early Balenciaga Triple S sneakers were manufactured in Italy but production was shifted to China for undisclosed reasons. The Balenciaga Track 2 is made in China, while the sock-like Balenciaga Speed is still manufactured in Italy and comes with “Made in Italy” certification.
Are Balenciaga sneakers true to size?
While it differs from model to model, most Balenciaga sneakers tend to run big. This means that it’s usually best to try them on in a store before buying them online or try to find a reliable website that compares the fit of certain Balenciaga sneakers to those from brands you already own, such as Nike or Adidas. Another thing to note is that Balenciaga sneakers are only offered in full sizes, you will need to take this into account when choosing the right size in Balenciaga footwear.
How much you should size down fully depends on your foot, but a good rule of thumb is to take a full size down from what you should usually wear or the closest full size. This means that, should you be a US 9 (42.5 EU), it is recommended you go with a 41 EU size Balenciaga sneaker.
How much are Balenciaga sneakers?
The Balenciaga shoes price for both men and women ranges from HK$408 to HK$1,185. The retail price for Balenciaga sneakers depends on several different factors. The model usually determines the price, as do the materials used (some models come in more premium iterations and therefore have a higher price than the standard). Occasionally, where you’re shopping can also have an effect on the price. As all apparel and sneakers come with a Minimum Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), some retailers can choose to charge more than others for certain items. Geographic locations are also a factor, as different countries have different taxes and import duties that can be passed on to the shopper.
