Balenciaga was founded in 1914 by Cristóbal Balenciaga, a Spanish designer, born in the Basque Country, Spain (Source). Since then Balenciaga became one of the fastest growing brands worldwide. The upscale brand is now owned by Gucci. The men line of Balenciaga sneakers are really dope. If sneakers were my drugs, Balenciaga would be my drug of choice. I am addicted to these sneakers. Below I have a list of 5 artists wearing Balenciaga sneakers. Who do you think rocked them the best, vote below:
Music artist and fashion icon Kanye West was spotted court side at the Lakers Vs Heats game, wearing a pair of all white $525 Balenciaga sneakers. Kanye wore his Balenciaga sneakers with a pair of Alitalia Sport 550 sunglasses, black button down shirt, black leather pants and jacket.
Back in January, Hip-Hop mogul Shaw “Jay-Z” Carter was spotted leaving the Mercer Hotel in Manhattan. Hova was styling on them lames in a pair of $535 Balenciaga Sneakers. Jay matched the sneakers up with a black leather Gucci jackets, grey sweater and some PRPS destroyed denim.
