Find out when and where you can get your hands on the next hottest sneaker to come from luxury brand, Balenciaga.

The chunky sneaker trend rose to fame in 2018 and a year later there are no signs of it slowing down. Balenciaga trainers can be seen on those who are willing to splurge around a thousand dollars on a pair – and there are a lot of them. Now, the luxury and designer fashion house has developed a new style, but it still takes inspiration from the chunky "dad sneaker". The Track.2 silhouette should not be confused with the original Track sneaker. This iteration includes a lot more elements than the first, making it complex in design.

There is a lot of detail in this sneaker style, thanks to the 176 separate pieces on the shoe. All the panels overlap each-other making an "open-air" structure. You can see both leather and metallic mesh exposed and peaking through the design, which really helps the shoes stand out from others we have seen from Balenciaga. It's equipped with a dual-density EVA sole which is both lightweight and comfortable. The laces are in a thick rope-style and the tongue proudly displays the name of the shoe – so everyone will know what's on your feet.

If you are looking for the coolest statement sneaker, Balenciaga's Track.2 may be the shoe for you. It comes in three different colourways: an all-white and all-black version, as well as a colour-block design in red, white and blue.

When and where can you buy the Balenciaga Track.2 sneaker?

We can expect to see the Track.2 sneaker hit Balenciaga online on 18 June. However, if you can wait, our favourite global stockist of Balenciaga will be getting the trainers just a week after that. Mark your calendars and set your phone reminders for 25 June on SSENSE (this is likely going to be a fast sell-out).
