The popularity of Balenciaga‘s Arena sneaker in 2012 is hard to overstate. Notably, the Arena is arguably the only shoe that contends with the Air Yeezy 2 as Kanye West’s favorite sneaker of the year. The sneaker has won over both streetwear and high-end fashion enthusiasts alike through a unique silhouette and bold color iterations to go along with its reputable fashion house label. Balenciaga applies a creased leather upper with tonal sole, making it a true standout with the perfect balance of subtle detailing. The Balenciaga Arena Creased leather sneaker is now available for $495 USD from MR PORTER.
