This past weekend, Demna presented his Spring/Summer 2024 collection for Balenciaga, which was a true return to form. The theatrical showcase saw the likes of family and friends gracing the catwalk in true Demna signatures – positing one of his most intimate runway shows to date. Now on its heels, Balenciaga has released its new Cargo Sneaker, which made its official debut on the runway just yesterday.

Marking an exclusive release, the sneaker carries Balenciaga’s signature gargantuan proportions – potentially just as large or larger than the brand’s previous chunky sneakers like the Track Runner and Triple S. Comprising the sneaker is a microfiber and mesh build in shades of gray, black and yellow.
What also stands out about the shoe is its amplified volumes and reflective details that encompass the sole, back and parts of the upper. Additionally, the shoe includes subtle worn detailing that contributes to its slightly dystopic and futuristic look. Other details of the shoe include an embroidered Balenciaga logo on the tongue and upper alongside a 3B sports icon on the sides. It’s also important to note that the shoe’s oversize fit covers 2 sizes.
Take a look at the new sneaker silhouette in the gallery above. Priced at $1,490 USD, Balenciaga’s Cargo Sneaker is available now online and is limited to only 1,000 units.
