To say Balenciaga‘s Speed Trainer was a success would definitely be an understatement. The popular silhouette has found a way to penetrate mainstream fashion and is even referenced in Cardi B’s “I Like It.” Now, the fashion house introduces an upgraded version with the Speed 2.0.
Demna Gvasalia designed the Balenciaga Speed 2.0 which doesn’t stray too far away from the aesthetic of the first model. The silhouette still keeps its 3D-knitted sock upper as well as the sole but this time around, comfort and flexibility are at the forefront.
An more defined molded sole enhances the overall unit to provide better agility without sacrificing its strength. The Speed 2.0 also features five segments in the sole which adds more support to each part of the foot as opposed to just one-piece from the previous model.
Colorways for the new Balenciaga Speed 2.0 can be found in triple black, gray, tan and black-and-white. Head over to Balenciaga’s online shop and in select retailers to purchase. Prices range from $825 USD to $895 USD.
