Balenciaga Sells Worn-Out Sneakers For N1m (Photos)
Popular Luxury fashion brand, Balenciaga has unveiled a new campaign promoting a series of roughed-up sneakers with a whopping price tag.
The images, shot by popular photographer Leopold Duchemin for the brand, of severely tattered, distressed shoes have gone viral following the launch of the couture brand’s new Paris sneaker.
According to the fashion house, only 100 pairs of “extra destroyed” sneakers will be available to buy for $1,850 (N1,091,500). But the non-limited edition, and less roughed-up versions, are being sold on the Balenciaga website for $495 and $625, depending on the specific style.
In a press release, the Paris-based brand Balenciaga said that the campaign photos show the shoes “extremely worn, marked up, and dirtied.”

Balenciaga also revealed that the luxury fashion brand is expecting to get it’s first customers of the much talked about sneakers.
