Balenciaga's panelled sneakers have been seen in many different material combinations over the years, including meshes, embossed and pleated leathers, metallics, and suedes, just to name a few. But this new sneaker may feature the most interesting one yet.
Along with a black patent and cross-grain leather, this edition of Balenciaga high top features holographic panels which create a look similar to their popular pleated leather editions. These are available now at MR PORTER, and retail for $595.
