Some sneakers are destroyed more, others less, while they are all made of worn cotton and rubber. Many have grooves and black spots, the brand's logo is printed on the toe and a graphite inscription in color contrast on the sole. Behind this design is the iconic creative director of the Balenciaga brand and the co-founder of Vetements, Demna Gvasalia, who likes to cross borders in his designs.

 

Sneakers are available in both low-top and high-top versions and in several variations of the extent to which they are destroyed. You can buy the cheapest low moccasins for $ 495 (469 euros), high ones for $ 625 (592 euros) and for the most expensive so-called extra destroyed high Paris Sneakers, which belong to the limited edition of 100 released pairs, you will pay up to $ 1,850 (1,750 euros).

 

However, the trend of so-called dirty or destroyed sneakers is nothing new, many luxury fashion houses like Gucci or Maison Margiela have regularly included them in collections in recent years.
