Switching things up from its past muted colorways of the TRACK trailer sneaker, Balenciaga is back with the hybrid luxe trail trainer, but this time releasing it in a bright blue-and-pink colorway. Aside from the customary chunky outsole that’s been found in current footwear releases from the house, the TRACK differs from the Triple S by its cage-like uppers — layering windowed panels of blue, baby-blue, gray, black and fuchsia over an equally-complex midsole and outsole.
Details for this pair of Balenciaga TRACK sneakers include the signature shoe size on the toe, “Balenciaga” branding on the lateral side of the toe, a chunky gray outsole bottom, a dual lacing system, and pink lining. Many have already expressed their stance on Balenciaga’s footwear, mostly not in favor of the over-the-top silhouettes, but one can also not disregard how well the retro-stylings work with this brightly-colored hiking/running shoe — and the fact that over 90 different components go into making each side of the trainers.
Those interested can find this retro-inspired colorway of the Balenciaga TRACK over at MR PORTER where it retails for a price of £435 GBP (approximately $570 USD).
