Joining the luxury sneaker trend, Balmain recently released its chunky take on the high-top sneaker.

Dubbed the Joan Sneaker, the high-rising take features a sporty mesh base dressed with suede and leather overlays. Decoration on the shoe comes in the form of a silver-tone Balmain logo plaque tacked on to a padded tongue. Elevating the shoe is an exaggerated treaded Live Tech© lightweight foam rubber sole unit and lace loops at the padded collar.

Priced at $1195 USD, Balmain’s Joan Sneakers are available now at SSENSE.

In case you missed it, Versace’s new Medusa-embellished high-top sneaker sports a court-ready aesthetic.
