Balenciaga To Release Their Own £595 Football Boots
Balenciaga have offered fans a closer look at its brand new 'Soccer Sneaker' [their words not mine] ahead of next month's official release date.
The luxury fashion brand will slap a reported £595 price tag on these classic, leather-free boots, with the company's famous branding visable on a retro foldable tongue.
These 'unique' boots have been reworked for everyday wear as opposed to athletic activities, as you can see by their round-spiked polyurethane soles, and come in a variety of different colours.
Good luck to the person who wears these on a cold Sunday morning. That's all I'm saying.

Earlier this year, Balenciaga also released their own £612 football jersey made from mid-weight premium cotton and a stand collar to help it "further blur the line between sportswear and streetwear-indebted luxury", report Hypebeast.

In terms of proper Sunday League attire, Italian fashion designer John Serafino has created a pair of boots worthy of any Powerleague arena.
The Serafino 4th Edge football boot integrates a flat nose to give the user a perfect surface to wind up the perfect toe punt smash.
According to the Serafino website, the revolutionary rubberised concave toe enables players to perform with greater power, accuracy, safety and comfort while at the same time needing only minimal back lift when using the toe.
They go on to state that he boot is equipped with triple padding, as well as ankle and achilles heel supports.
