Balmain has unveiled its latest new sneaker style, taking influence from basketball for the futuristic B-Ball silhouette. The sneaker features a number of classic basketball elements — including its high-top construction and cushioned sole unit — alongside a number of luxurious touches from the French house.

The sneaker is dressed in a white and off-white colorway, with the calfskin leather upper also featuring a semi-translucent foot strap with black Balmain branding. Other details include a branded tongue patch, perforated accents on the toe and a tapered midsole unit.

Take a look at the Balmain B-Ball sneaker in the gallery above. The high-fashion-meets-basketball sneaker is available now from stockists including Aphrodite, priced at £649 GBP (approximately $850 USD).

In other footwear news, Dior has given its B01 sneaker a subtle upgrade.
