While the muddied 3XL was thought to simply be the result of the show, the house would release a mud-covered pair a few months after, in early April. The pair featured what appeared to be dry mud all around the outer, tattered laces and an upper with a ruggedly worn aesthetic.
The latest offering of the 3XL sees the same runway blue released, this time without the mud and distressed laces. Although, the silhouette still gives off a worn look with scratches and marks found around the upper and midsole.
Leather free, the pair is primarily constructed using mesh and polyurethane. Details found throughout include “Balenciaga” branding at the toe and heel, as well as embossed size indicators on the upper and heel, in addition to reflective “3XL” branding on the tongue.
The pair is available for preorder now on Balenciaga’s official site and retails for roughly $60 USD less than its mud-covered counterpart, bringing the total to $1,090 USD.
