UPDATE: Balenciaga's Newest Trainer, the Track.2, is Finally Here
The maximalist design has dropped in three colorways.
UPDATE (July 17, 2019): The Balenciaga Track.2 Trainer has just been released. As shared before, the shoes arrive in three colorways – all-white, all-black and a color-blocked version featuring white, red and blue hues. While the shoes did not appear on the runway, they are launched as part of the Fall/Winter 2019 collection. Take a look at the video campaign below for looks from the season.
The Balenciaga Track.2 Trainer can now be purchased for $825 USD at the brand’s official web store and global retailers including SSENSE. More colorways are slated to drop soon, so stay tuned for updates.
Balenciaga debuts a follow-up design to its well-received Track silhouette dubbed the Track.2 trainer. The design has a bit more of a complex makeup than its predecessor. The model arrives in three colorways: a color-blocked iteration in white, red and blue, an all-white iteration and a version in all-black.
Detailing was created with maximalists in mind and is comprised of 176 separate pieces. Faux-worn athletic layers leave room for a more open-air structure that exposes metallic mesh and negative space. The aforementioned portion lies between overlapping panels attached to a dual-density EVA lightweight sole. Lastly, a “Track.2” emblem is embossed on the shoe’s tongue.
