Balenciaga, known for their famous chunky "dad" shoe, just released a set of trainers known as "Zen sneakers," which are inspired by "athletic tech," Dazed reports.




It seems to be the final nail in the coffin for the death of streetwear and further proof of the subtle rise of luxury sportswear, as predicted by luxury streetwear pioneer Virgil Abloh in December.




Balenciaga follows the likes of Balmain and designer Raf Simons in launching athletic-focused high-end fashion collections.

It seems football shoes are the new dad shoes. Or at least, that's what Balenciaga is trying to tell us.
The luxury brand, a notable pioneer of the chunky dad shoe trend that spanned the globe, has now switched it up with the release of its Zen Collection. The shoe? Slimmer. The material? Non-leather. The design? Football. Golf. Bowling. Or Lonsdale. Depending on who you ask.
Whatever they are, it might just be luxury's next big takeover.
