The new Paris sneaker-inspired mule continues this ultra-worn-in aesthetic for Summer 2023. The off-white vulcanized sole features black scuff marks, and the denim-effect upper comes pre-faded. The design even has useless laces as a detail.
Balenciaga has certainly embraced unconventional mules, blending the sophistication of the footwear design with a strong sporty sensibility. In recent years, the luxury label has boasted collaborations like the Balenciaga x Birkenstock Balenci-Stock mule model, as well as solo forays like the sporty Triple S Mule Hybrid and the 3XL Sneaker-Mules.
