How to buy Balenciaga Runner Sculpture 20-unit limited edition drop? Price and more explored
After taking over the dressing rooms of its junkies, Balenciaga is now ready to invade their homes with its state-of-the-art Runner Sculptures. Unrivaled home decor pieces are inspired by the luxury brand’s signature Runner Triple S sneakers.
Demna Gvasalia’s creativity and original concepts have been winning hearts since 2015. With this in mind, Balenciaga’s creative director released an avant-garde shoe sculpture, which is the epitome of craftsmanship.
The luxury fashion house recently opened its new London flagship store. The building, as well as the interior design of the entire store, is inspired by the brand’s Raw Architecture concept. The new store is located on the famous New Bond Street.
Balenciaga’s Runner sculpture is a hand-sculpted masterpiece
Handcrafted with commendable precision, the sneaker artifact is crafted from ceramic. Demna’s head-turning masterpiece is limited to just 20 units, making it more exclusive and rare. The grade-A ceramic fireplace can weigh heavily on the pockets of Balenciaga fans, as each piece will cost $7,290.
The units capped with the Runner sculptures are published on the brand’s official website and in some of its flagship stores located in Beijing, Beverly Hills, London, Paris, Shanghai, Dubai, Hong Kong, Monaco and Tokyo.
Glazed in white porcelain, the handcrafted artifact will be an exemplary pledge for the brand aficionado.
With its latest centerpiece, the brand aims to celebrate its much-admired Runner shoes. Last year, three new colorways for Runner shoes were introduced by the label.
With a weight of 1.4 kg, the sculpture is built with a size 42 US, just like the original sneakers. The pieces made in Switzerland are molded, fired and varnished by a craftsman who knows the ancient Italian techniques of enameling majolica.
Running shoes are the creation of Demna
The original three highly requested sneaker colorways were released last year. Made in black, white and burgundy/grey colourways, the shoes are inspired by the kicks of the 1990s and 2000s. The durable trainers were adorned with the brand’s branding to the tongues. The upper body of the shoe was covered in mesh and the pair was fitted with a thick midsole and outsole combination.
All the pieces made by the brand are like collector’s items. Just like the last artifact, the label limited the number of Runner Triple S shoes to just 650 which were introduced in July last year. Each pair of limited-edition kicks sold for $1,095.
