Balenciaga’s new Track sneaker is now available at their MBS boutique
Right on track
There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who adore Balenciaga's brand of dad-cool, oversized sneakers and those who find them, well... ugly. If you're among the former, run, don't walk to the Balenciaga boutique at Marina Bay Sands to get your hands on the brand's soon-to-be impossible to find Track trainer. The latest super sneaker from team Demna Gvasalia follows the hyper-successful Speed and Triple S. The vibe? '80s-inspired hiking shoes in neon colourways. Available here are: White and orange, black on black, yellow and gray, and blue and orange. Not just your average dad sneaker, this version is high-tech, complete with USB charging (in case your phone needs some juice midway through your everyday jaunts) and LED lights in the midsole.
This hot, new shoe combines the best of fashion and function. It has elements of both a track and hiking shoe – a major menswear fall/winter 2018 trend. Partially made of GoreTex, it has cage construction around the heel, and a complex double lace vamp. Each pair comes with two sets of laces, a chunky midsole and Balenciaga branding on the outsole, with the word 'Track' stamped at the back. Be sure to style it like it was worn on the runway — with the hem of your track bottoms tucked under the heel and in the shoe.
On the enduring appeal of Balenciaga sneakers, Sebastian Manes, Selfridges' buying and merchandising director, told Vogue before the exclusive launch at the store prior to its wider release,“Balenciaga sneakers have been one of the most in-demand pieces of footwear since last year. Every time we restock the Triple S, it sells out within hours thanks to a growing waiting list. Our clients can’t wait to see what’s next from Demna Gvasalia – he has truly reinvented the house for the modern day woman and man." See the four available colourways below.
Available now at the Balenciaga boutique at #01-39 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
