Balenciaga's Iconic Speed Trainer Just Got an Update

Fold it over.

Balenciaga‘s iconic Speed Trainer quickly became a catalyst of the ever-growing sock sneaker trend, with brands all across the industry releasing their own takes on the funky footwear. Now, Demna Gvasalia has given the Balenciaga classic a sporty update, this time featuring a fold-over sock sporting a logo detail.

Equipped with the signature geometrical sole, elevated with neon yellow accents, the shoe arrives with a stretchy black knit upper for maximum comfort. Atop the shoe a fold-over part has been added to the “sock.” emblazoned with Balenciaga’s new logo in white. Perfect for the minimalist as well as the trend-lover, these sneakers are guaranteed to become your go-to’s this fall.

Retailing at $875 USD, you can cop a pair of your own over at Farfetch.
