With its chunky build and familiar details, Balenciaga‘s Track Sandal is a perfect warm weather option for Track Trainer and Track.2 aficionados. Now, it’s released in a vivid blue makeup. Using a shade adjacent to “Classic Blue” — Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year — this cerulean-colored Track Sandal is big, bold and bulky in signature Balenciaga style.

Dressed entirely in blue, midsoles are inherently familiar to any follower of the Track line thanks to a plastic heel shank and double B logo on the toe bumper. Open-air uppers feature much of the same articulated tooling as their closed-toe counterparts, but the lacing system is replaced by two bold Velcro straps, the larger of which offers debossed Balenciaga branding.

More Velcro is present on the heel straps, which discard the flat tones used on the rest of the silhouette in favor of vivid metallic detailing and add a black text graphic. Finally, mesh-lined footbeds offer breathability and enhanced comfort.

The Balenciaga Track Sandal in blue is available for pre-order now at retailers like Moda Operandi, and is expected to ship on May 29.

If a bold, Balenciaga-adjacent aesthetic is your cup of tea, check out HYPEBEAST Magazine Issue #28’s cover story with Russian designer Harry Nuriev.
