In recent months, Balenciaga‘s Triple-S sneaker has produced a wide variety of reactions; as we recently showcased, some high-profile individuals aren’t afraid to single out the item as “ugly and impractical.” However, the mixed bag of responses to the Triple-S hasn’t slowed the hype surrounding the shoe; the “hard-to-ignore” shoe is one of the most talked-about Balenciaga releases of the year and has already been copied by one of fast-fashion’s most significant forces. Adding to the line, Balenciaga is getting much closer to dropping another new take on the shoe.
Known as the “Cream” colorway, the latest Triple-S iteration is outfitted with a design that boasts “pre-distressed,” “vintage,” “quilted” and “love worn” aspects. Pieced together via a nubuck and mesh build, the Triple-S “Cream” comes to life courtesy of a creative Frankenstein mix of activewear sneaker molds and features a triple-layered, chunky sole unit. Adding to the high-quality manufacturing behind this shoe, this new spin is made in Italy.
