When Balenciaga introduced its Triple S, the sneakers were not for everyone, especially when it was a huge departure from the streamlined Speed Trainer. A custom iteration now mixes both.

As previewed by @hypemuseum, the hybrid high top utilizes the highly controversial Triple S chunky sole with the Speed Trainer’s fully knit upper. The knit arrives in red to match the details of the heralded triple sole.

Execution-wise, the customization is simple but does solve a few of the criticisms garnered of the Triple S; the silhouette receives a sleeker aesthetic, and goes far in simplifying the overall look.

What do you think of these? Leave your comments below and discover the top 10 sneakers of the year.
