The strangest thing about the item is that they cannot be used and are the most expensive in the brand's history.

Spanish luxury fashion house Balenciaga has launched sneakers for $ 5,750 (about 115,244,000 pesos), nothing new, although the most expensive. The strange thing, however, is that they cannot be used as they are sculptures of one of the most famous models, track 2.

They have had numerous successful starts in the company's history. Among them the speed trainer or better known as socked sneakers; The Tyrex Low was known to be the ugliest and most flashy on the market, and the Triple S gave impetus to chunky-style athletic shoes.

Why these sneakers?

Unlike their predecessors, these cannot be worn and are a real collector's item. The sneakers are part of a new Objects line and are made of brass, so they would be terribly uncomfortable. According to the description on the brand's website, the shoes weigh 2.5 kilos and are a European size 41.

Made in Italy, they are made up of 16 pieces that are individually hand welded to create an exact replica with all the details that make Track 2 stand out. So far only 20 copies have been produced.

They will be available in limited editions and at the moment there is only difficult tennis to be found in the Objects section.
