By now, Balenciaga has covered every sneaker shape in the market. Of course, each one with Demna’s bizarre twist. From groundbreaking designs like the Speed trainers to beaten kicks like the four-figure Paris Sneakers, this time Balenciaga brings its dramatic take to your closet with a pair Runner Sneakers.

It’s been a couple of years since ‘90s-style running sneakers carved their own space in every sneakerhead's closet. With the rising hype of dad-looking kicks from names like ASICS, New Balance, and more, the old-fashioned silhouette is now the most in-demand shoe, and luxury houses like Balenciaga have been taking notes.

It's not the first time Demna has taken cues from marathon kicks. During the Georgian designer's first years as Balenciaga’s creative director, he desgined the techy Track model. Its iconic technical composition has gained popularity, as we’ve seen other versions along the way, such as the Track.2 or the latest Track.3.

The Runner Trainers initially dropped in 2021 and are defined by their deconstructed silhouette, cut panels, and glossy effect. While Balenciaga offers a wide range of natural colors for these ‘90s running shoes, it also boasts an eye-catching color palette for those who like to make more of an impact.

An addiction to luxury sneakers can be a hard one to deal with now that prices consistently break the four-figure mark. So, when a pair like this comes around in the sale, it's your call to add a bold colorway to your rotation.
