Summer road races are right around the corner, which means you need a great pair of sneaks to eek out the competition, both on the course and in the street. Rather than stick to the usual athletic brands, upgrade your athletic style with the Race Runner Sneakers from Balenciaga.

These colorblock sneakers run down the competition with a sleek design that’s as practical as it is attractive. The mesh vamp breathes easy to keep your feet cool when you kick it into high gear in the second mile, while a generous rubber grip sole absorbs shock, and a neoprene upper offers superb comfort. An elastic strap provides extra support, while the suede heel counter and leather quarter panels complete the mixed media profile.

How to wear it? Upgrade the look from athleisure to athluxury when you skip the yoga pants and switch to tailored trousers, or a sports skirt and statement diamond bracelet. Whatever you do, be sure to match the royal blue laces so that the color really pops.

Made in Italy, these sneakers are backed by Balenciaga’s years of quality craftsmanship and attention to detail and finishing.
