With a questionable IKEA silhouette and a clutch of new colorway drops, Balenciaga switches up its beloved Speed Trainer by adding neon-yellow laces.

Although officially dubbed “lace-up knit sock sneakers,” don’t be fooled, for it is the Speed Trainer you’ve come to know and love. The simple upgrade maintains the comfy knitted sock UPPER, memory sole technology, and a small branding marker on the upper. For added flair, the laces come in neon — the au courant colorway right now. Rounding off the eye-catching look is a black trim, which complements the white midsole nicely.

With limited units available at Saks Fifth Avenue, the lace-up speed trainer is currently retailing for $695. Let us know what you think of the remodel.
