A Spanish brand which specialises in men's footwear.
It is impossible to talk about the brand Balenciaga without mentioning the name of its illustrious founder, Cristobal Balenciaga. He arrived from Spain in 1937 to present his eponymous brand and his first-ever haute couture collection. The brand was founded back in 1919, just after the First World War. In his creations, Cristobal Balenciaga often pay homage to his birthplace and artisanal craftsmanship, and he also loves working with colours, boasting a meticulous eye for finishes. He went on to launch collections both for women and also for men, which included clothing, accessories, fragrances and footwear. Men's trainers met with resounding success and included powerful designs like the Triple S and Speed styles.
Men's footwear with a decidedly off-kilter flair.
As far as the men's shoes designed by Balenciaga are concerned, there is no point in expecting a classic design. Here, creativity is the key to producing designs which are unlike any others. The codes of aesthetics are turned on their heads by the designer, who works with generous proportions, paying great attention to finishes and to the materials selected. At times the style is worn and deliberately aged, colours are blended and the forms differ between the low-cut and the high-cut versions. At first glance, the shoes can appear to have more in common with hiking boots, but appearances can be deceptive. They are specifically designed for fashion-loving men who are familiar with the latest trends. In leather, rubber or canvas, the trainers are a perfect match for casual or more elaborate styles. Also, their ergonomically-designed soles solve any possible comfort issues before they even arise.
