Model: Tyrex Leather Biker Boot
Key Features: Balenciaga has taken its bizarre Tyrex sneaker one step further with this high-top rendition. The biker boot is made from white leather and is overlayed with shiny black shin guards that are branded with Balenciaga’s dual logo, while a red calf guard on the rear also adding more branding. The dynamic and futuristic look is complimented by technical details such as ankle and toe ventilation. A full-length medial-side zip and sporty “blncg” branding on the lateral front quarter round out the pair.
Release Date: Available now
Editor’s Notes: First seen splashing down Balenciaga’s apocalyptic FW20 runway, the Tyrex boot takes Demna Gvasalia’s divisive sneaker to bizarre new heights (literally). As genius as it is weird, the boot combines the anatomical sole unit from the original Tyrex, as well as a take on its signature toe detailing, with the body of a motorbike boot.
Rendered in clean white leather, the Tyrex boot completes the futuristic western fantasy of our dreams and reminds us again why the Maison is truly the reigning king of luxury footwear.
Whether you’re as intoxicated as we are with this new offering or simply have been looking for the right futuristic Motorcross-esque sneaker-boots to add to your rotation, you’ll be pleased to learn that you can now cop a pair of these bizarre kicks at MatchesFashion.com, where it retails for $1,260.
