A retooled classic design interprets mid-century athleticism and timeless casual wear in black, white, or red, with a white rubber sole and toe. 

It is finished with distressed canvas and rough edges, affecting a pre-worn look. The Balenciaga Paris Sneaker comes in lace-up styles, either high-top or backless mule. 

A dedicated campaign shows the shoes extremely worn, marked up, and dirtied. These still life portraits, by photographer Leopold Duchemin, suggest that Paris Sneaker are meant to be worn for a lifetime. A limited edition of 100 pairs of these extra destroyed sneakers will be available on balenciaga.com in either black or white while supplies last. 

The Balenciaga Paris Sneaker will be available worldwide via balenciaga.com
