If you're in need of a fuss-free shoe, then Balenciaga's Speed sneakers will be your best bet. This pair features a sock-like, knit upper that sits on a thick white midsole and black rubber outsole. Since its first launch back in 2016, it has since been a popular Balenciaga buy with good reason. This shoe is one of the comfiest sneakers you'll ever want, what with its ultra-flexible molded sole. It's fitted with an ergonomic sole that comes with a "no memory" technology which hugs your feet in all the right places as it cradles and supports you in every step. Did we mention they're extra light, too? You'll want to go the extra mile once you slip them on!

3. Speed Lace-up
Yes, there's a third Speed trainers that deserve a spot in this list, which gives you a cool, not-so-subtle hint why the style is incredibly well-loved. While we'll never know why they even released a similar-looking (almost identical, if you ask me), we're not complaining! These lace-ups are a nice addition to the Speed's minimalist look.
