Balmain, the storied French fashion label, presents a crisp cut from their 2013 spring/summer footwear offerings: the Hi Cut Sneaker. The shoes takes as much from a pair of wintertime emu boots as they do from some classic basketball shoes, though the end result is a light silhouette that fits perfect for the transitional season. The Hi Cut sneaker is detailed with beige snakeskin around the perforated sidewall and toe, which sits atop an off-white sole. The shoe is also complimented by a zipper around the heel for easy access, as well as a metal boot loop system for easy lacing. The seasonal high-top is now available online.
