Balenciaga Sneaker Sculpture
Between five-toed shoes as well as shoes that, according to Cardi B, look like socks, Balenciaga has dropped many unique and almost weird shoes. Now, one of its newest sneaker designs is a shoe that you can’t even wear. The shoe, technically a sculpture, was designed to celebrate Balenciaga’s popular Track.2 sneakers. Oh and, it costs $8,790.
There are only 20 Track.2 Sculptures available worldwide, so it would be a special cop for shoe fanatics. Most sneakerheads enjoy collecting shoes and not wearing them in order to keep their kicks in pristine condition. With this sneaker, that’s the whole point.
Modelled after the brand’s Track.2 sneaker in a size 41, the Track Sculpture consists of 16 individual cast brass pieces were soldered together to accurately capture the layered design of the original shoe’s silhouette.
The made-in-Italy sculpture is the first instalment from Balenciaga’s new Object line, which will consist of individual drops that range from collectibles like this to items for everyday use.
The Track.2 is one of Balenciaga’s most popular shoes. In fact, it is so highly coveted by hypebeasts, there is even a necklace form of the sneaker. The Mini Track.2 Necklace costs $675 for a thin chain and a bronze Track.2 pendant, so you can show off your love for these shoes with some bling. It may even go well with your Balenciaga Hoodie.
