Balenciaga is selling worn out shoes for Rs.3 lacs. The question is; who would buy these?
Balenciaga has released its latest shoe line, which features 100 pairs of “extra destroyed” limited-edition sneakers. The unusual footwear are battered and worn out, yet they’re selling for $1,850 on the internet in Europe i.e Rs.347,784 PKR.
Balencianga described the sneakers as a retooled classic design that translates mid-century athleticism and timeless casual wear in black, white, or red, with a white rubber sole and toe having distressed canvas and rough edges, giving them a pre-worn look.
‘Worn for life’:
The still-life images of the excessively dusty shoes really show that the new Paris sneakers “are meant to be worn for a lifetime,” according to a press release shared by Papermag.com.
