Providing a striking antithesis to the chunky BBold sneaker, Balmain launches the new BSkate – a lightweight, skate silhouette refined with a sleek design.

Since Balmain introduced its digital sneaker hub last year, its sneaker releases have come thick and fast. In its latest BSkate model, Balmain turns its focus to every day, city-appropriate footwear by injecting clean lines onto the rugged skate silhouette.

Similar to Balmain’s previous silhouettes, the BSkate sneaker has a luxury feel with its premium materials and components crafted in Italy. Along the sneaker’s body, Balmain opts for a trio of tumbled leather, soft suede and rubber panels which are layered and stitched with signature couture techniques.

Other features include a unique lacing system that tucks the flat laces neatly under the eyestay and an embossed Balmain logo that runs across the back heel. For the initial launch, Balmain release an all-white colorway and a more playful khaki and black model with tinges of fluorescent orange.

The BSkate sneaker is available to buy now on the Balmain sneaker hub, coming in high-top and low iterations.
