The New Balenciaga Trainer

You may or may not remember but three weeks ago Balenciaga released this trainer in all black, this week they revisited this design in an all white pattern. I like this trainer because it is not like anything else on the market right now and it isn't trying to be like any of it's competition; it has an identity all it's own. The rubber bottom makes it quite unique, you do not usually see this kind of finish on high end designer trainers, this rubber sole is generally used by designers that cater to athlete's nevertheless I am intrigued to see how the consumer responds to this one. This re-release in a different color shows that they are sticking by the design, how will it fare in the market? Only time will tell.
