Balenciaga's Defender Sneaker Takes Oversized to Another Level

Arriving with a tire-inspired sole unit.

Spotted on Justin Bieber in Balenciaga‘s latest campaign, the Defender Sneaker is the latest addition to the fashion house’s footwear catalog.

Arriving in “Beige” and “Black,” the silhouette’s design is inspired by a tire. The upper is crafted from mesh and nylon material featuring a weathered effect. The tongue, rear and heel pull tabs boast Balenciaga’s branding, while the toe is embossed with the wearer’s shoe size. The 5mm tread sole unit with an arch rounds off the footwear style.

Take a closer look at the different iterations above. Priced at $1,090 USD, the Defender Sneaker in “Black” and “Beige” will drop on March 1 via Balenciaga’s website.
