Kim Kardashian’s take on athleisure trends may look different than most.

The media personality repped a full Balmain set on Tuesday in her twist on athletic style; the outfit matched printed biker shorts with a pull-sleeve crop top and full-length gloves — she even wore a matching face mask, too.

The Balmain theme continued until Kim’s choice of footwear where she switched things up thanks to her go-to sandals from husband Kanye West’s line.

The see-through Yeezy pair comes set with a flip flop-inspired front atop with plastic clear straps, all set atop a rounded toe and a translucent almost 5-inch wedge heel. Kim has been wearing the pairs for years, constantly matching them to warm weather-chic looks and on-trend designs. Though the pair has since sold out, you can find similar designs from Yeezy’s latest collections available on-sale from $308 to $420 at Farfetch.com.

When it comes to overall personal style, Kim oftentimes favors apparel from her husband’s Yeezy collections for footwear and apparel in addition to sneakers and boots from his Adidas Yeezy line. She styles the pieces with coordinating looks from Balmain, Balenciaga, Stuart Weitzman and Bottega Veneta.

Most recently, the Skims founder chose a wedge boot from the brand to balance out her leather romper. The style came set atop a lifted almost 5-inch heel with an architecturally curved finish; similar colorways to Kim’s gray boots retail normally for $517 but are on sale for $310 courtesy of Farfetch.

Beyond stylish looks on and off the set of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kim also dipped her toes into the fashion and beauty world with a mix of ventures. She created her Skims shapewear line in 2019, featuring a mix of inclusive designs and now affordable face masks too. Additionally, the media personality also founded her own makeup line, KKW Beauty, last fall.
