WHAT'S HOT: Balenciaga launches old, dirty sneakers for nearly $2,000
Balenciaga launched its new Paris sneaker this week and images of the shoes have people talking.
The high top sneakers look old, tattered and dirty.
And the price tag for the roughed-up sneakers may surprise you...nearly $2,000!
The fashion house has clarified that these photos are the limited-edition versions, shot by photographer Leopold Duchemin.
In a press release, Balenciaga said the still-life portraits "suggest that Paris sneakers are meant to be worn for a lifetime."
Only 100 pairs of these "extra destroyed" shoes will be available to buy.
Meanwhile, the non-limited edition, and less rough versions are being sold on the Balenciaga website for between $500 and $700.
