Balenciaga, the luxury fashion house, has released a new range of damaged shoes dubbed “Paris Sneaker.”
Following the launch of the couture house’s new Paris sneaker, photos of highly damaged, degraded sneakers taken by photographer Leopold Duchemin for the brand went viral, eliciting a range of opinions online.
The sneakers are composed of 100% damaged cotton and rubber with ribs all over the fabric, according to the official website.
According to the fashion house, only 100 pairs of “very ruined” sneakers will be offered for $1,850 each (N1,091,500). On the Balenciaga website, non-limited edition, less roughed-up versions range from $495 to $625, depending on the design.
