Balenciaga's latest Drive sneakers are stark and bold informed by its latest colorway that is detailed by the red accents throughout the model. The luxury fashion house originally launched a more muted option of the model and the bold update prepares for the summer season more accordingly.
The design of the shoe boasts multiple layers and blends a variety of textures with the fusion of materials and colors. The top of the shoe features "Drive" adorned on the black rubber overlays accompanied by round laces and a white mesh material to contrast. Additional branding can be found on the leather panel that travels from the upper quarter all the way to the heel area and ending at the lower midsection.
