If you love socks, but also love sneakers, the speed trainer is for you
Balenciaga first released the Speed Trainer last year, and the success was immediate. The innovative design and sock-like aesthetic made the Speed Trainer one of the most searched items of last year’s fashion.
Since then, the Speed Trainer has been subject to numerous bootleg renditions, with fans asking for a cheaper option. Now, the brand created a new version of the famous design and fans are loving it.
The newest iteration of the futuristic runner features an all-black color scheme and exaggerated knit sock upper. The trainers feature the Balenciaga logo on the sock. The shoes are super lightweight, weighing only 240 g.
Rounding out the new design is the subtle branding laid out along the lower side area and the shock absorber sole done up in black.You can purchase the Balenciaga Speed Ribbed Low Trainer for 595 dollars at retailers as Bergdorf Goodman.
