I have this exact bag and I adore it. Aside from my "basher Bals" it is the Balenciaga that I baby the least, extremely durable and capable of taking a rain shower or a blob of chocolate sauce and wiping right off! Every Bal (heck, every bag) is susceptible to corner wear, though unless you drag your bag along sandpaper I'd say this one has a distinct advantage over the softer agneau bags. All the same, it does take a bit of mindfulness with the picking up and putting down. I've trained myself to pick up/put down my Balenciaga bags like I'm handling a baccarat goblet.... slow, gentle and with no dragging at any angles. Once you start doing this you realize just how much wear and tear a bag normally endures in take off and landing! Otherwise... this bag, in this color, would get my vote for one of the best buys in the "durability/longevity" department!
