Balenciaga excels in the quirky and unconventional (with a tad of shock), and you can always count on Demna Gvasalia to create footwear that are sure to turn heads.
Whether you love your Crocs with a difference (there was the Crocs Madame with an 80 mm heel), or the Cagole Sandal for that nostalgic twist, Balenciaga has always catered for a full head-to-toe look right in line with its avant-garde design aesthetic.
For Spring-Summer 2022, the spotlight shines brightly on the Defender Trainers, a unisex pair designed to elevate (no pun intended) your style even further.
While the sporty upper is reminiscent of familiar Balenciaga favourites like the Triple S and Track, the over-the-top ‘extreme tyre tread’ sole is the one to watch for these ‘as chunky as it gets’ trainers.
Available in full Black or Beige, the Defender Trainers (SGD1450) are given a worn-out effect on the mesh and nylon elements, with the thick soles paired with a similar treatment.
Balenciaga logos can be found on the shoe tongue, along with the signature numerical size placed at the edge of the toe and at the back near the heel.
Want to take a walk on the wild side? You can go all out with the Defender Trainers which are now available in sizes ranging from 34 all the way to 46.
