This week, Footwear News sneaker columnist Stacey Griffith—a senior master instructor at SoulCycle and avid sneaker collector—opts for luxe Balmain kicks. To see her thoughts on the style, read on below:
“Oh Balmain.. There was a time when this brand was so unreachable. Only a few specific fashionistas knew what it was, and only a few websites carried the actual sneaker!
These were a great find, I have to say. They have the signature Balmain ribbing in all the right places, and the cozy cotton inside feels like an actual sheepskin pillow on your toes — my couture version of sneaker UGGs.
I love this shoe in the fall with a dark skinny AG jean and a fluffy Isabel Marant sweater. And I can’t forget a hot apple cider with a black straw to tie it all together… Just saying.”
