A DESIGNER label’s new £540 trainers are inspired by moulded- stud football boots.
Balenciaga’s model teamed the faux-leather footwear with jeans, suggesting they are meant for nights out.
The Spanish fashion house — a favourite with Prem aces and Wags — admits: “Our sneakers are based on classic soccer boots, note the cleated soles and elasticated rubber tongues.”
“They’re made from durable faux leather that’s quilted, intricately topstitched and monogrammed for a distinctive finish.”
Critics cried foul about the design — in black, white and shocking pink — with one writing online: “They look like the market-stall boots I had at school when all my mates had Adidas Predators.”

THESE so-called sneakers are less a style goal and more a fashion red card.
They look like a child’s first football boots.
Your wallet will take a kicking too at £540 for blokes and £495 for ladies.
I guess “peacock” owners will keep the mud off them.
