WORDS BY JOSEPH FURNESS
The tech sneaker trend has officially hit its peak. The Balenciaga Track sneaker — set to (literally) be the next big thing in the sneakerverse since the Triple S — is more dad sneaker than, well, your dad’s sneakers. But it’s you that wants them, not him. Why? Demna said so.
Could you wear these on a date?
Outfitting these with a pair of straight-leg jeans and an untucked work shirt may give off the impression that you’ve already been married for a long, long time (and, as a result, might scare your date away). But we’re not saying no, we’re saying style wisely.
Could you wear these to work?
These sneakers certainly give off an ‘I’m important here so I can wear what I want’ vibe. Best reserved for those in executive roles who enjoying boasting their position (and the power that comes with it) at any given opportunity.
How do the Balenciaga Track sneakers fit?
Like a glove. We’re here for the snug fashion trends.
Less running sneaker, more strutting sneaker.
What does my grandmother think of these?
I’m not sure I get these. Sorry Balenciaga. Xx
(Sidenote: if my grandmother doesn’t get them, they must be doing something right.)
Where can you buy these sneakers?
